emergency ready plan binder Need help preparing your business for disaster? SERVPRO of Russellville, Hamilton, & Fayette is ready to help get your ERP in place!

Disasters at work are by nature unexpected, which can lead to chaotic situations, catastrophic damage and danger for everyone under your roof if you aren’t prepared. You may think you would know what to do in the middle of a warehouse fire or during an unexpected flood, but when the reality of the situation arrives, it can lead to serious consequences if you don’t act quickly.

Do you have a reliable emergency response plan ready to use for your commercial property? Having a plan in place for a variety of different possible scenarios is the best way for you to avoid business-ending disasters and ensure your staff’s safety no matter what. 

The SERVPRO® Emergency Ready Plan 

Our commercial services division can  help you create a reliable Emergency Ready Plan for your business so you are ready for anything. This plan will help you minimize disruption and can help you overcome various disaster situations faster and more reliably.

Having a plan is so important for the health and future of your business. Unfortunately, about 25% of businesses in the United States do not reopen after suffering a disaster. Those aren’t great odds, so having a plan in place to help you navigate these situations is vital. Our Emergency Ready Plan outlines what to do before, during and after a situation so that you can always stay in control. 

What’s Included in the Plan? 

We start by coming out to your property to do a no-cost assessment of your facility. We will check the entire building from top to bottom and assess the different threats that could impact our business and then create a Profile Document based on what we find. 

This document helps identify emergency exits, fire extinguisher locations, first-aid kits and escape routes. It also offers mitigation suggestions like where to store important documents and how to create go-bags for your employees to grab in an emergency. 

We also take the time to identify the chain of command in your business so that everyone is able to stay connected and the communication is clear throughout any sort of disaster situation. For example, if a water line bursts, knowing that a specific manager is in charge of finding the water shut-off valve while another manager’s responsibility is keeping people out of the area can make sure everyone stays safe and the situation remains contained. 

When We Step In
We are proud to help our local businesses navigate disaster situations and we hope that you can avoid them altogether, but we are always here to handle your recovery if one does occur. We will arrive quickly, tackle repairs efficiently and work with your insurance company to ensure you can open your doors back up as fast as possible to minimize downtime and closures.

We can help you stay open for business! Contact SERVPRO of Russellville, Hamilton & Fayette to set up your Emergency Ready Plan.
