Over the last several years, the United States has seen an increase in natural disasters. Not only are they happening more often, but they are also getting stronger and causing more damage in widespread areas.

Even with an overall increase in natural disasters, your business may never see one, or at least one that leaves you dealing with damage. While that will hopefully be true for you, there is always the possibility of manmade disasters striking that leave your business with damage.

It’s important to spend time considering the risks you may face in order to find ways to protect your business against them. By making a plan, you can spend your time focused on growing your brand instead of worrying about disasters.

The Importance of a Plan

As natural disasters continue to become more frequent, creating a plan for your business can mean the difference between life and death. Getting to know what threats you may face can help you stay ahead of any storm, flood or fire that comes your way.

Not only do disasters leave behind incredible amounts of physical damage, but they are also one of the most costly events any business will ever endure. When you have a plan, you are not only protecting yourself and your employees—you are protecting your business’ financial future.

Having a plan in place can also mean you get back to work faster when a disaster strikes that forces you to close short-term. Many businesses that experience a disaster that leaves their doors closed are never able to reopen them. With a plan, you and your team will know how to respond appropriately and keep work going.

An Emergency Ready Plan

In order to create a plan, you have to know where to start. With a single call to our SERVPRO® team, you can get started on creating an Emergency Ready Plan that is personalized to your business needs and starts at the first sign of a problem.

Our team will start creating your plan by performing a total assessment of your business. We will look at your unique risks in order to create the best possible course of action to keep you safe. Our crew will make sure your plan covers what to do before, during and after a disaster strikes.

When a disaster of any kind is predicted to affect your business, you can activate your plan and put your team to work. This may mean some of your staff is packing up important paperwork while others prep your building in order to mitigate damage. Everyone will know what to do as soon as you say “go.”

Communication will also be a central feature of your plan, ensuring that your team stays connected and we stay connected with you. A chain of command will be established so that information is disseminated efficiently and effectively.

As soon as it is safe to do so, our team will be dispatched to your property to start restoration efforts while your team goes back to work, whether on site, remotely or at another designated physical location, all of which will be laid out in your Emergency Ready Plan.

With a SERVPRO Emergency Ready Plan, you get a total package. Your business will be ready to face anything and can avoid potential losses, both physically and financially. Your plan will be made according to your needs, and comes with the backing of a national brand and 247 availability. It’s our goal to get you back to work fast.
