Why You Should Create an Emergency Plan | SERVPRO of Houston County
Natural disasters have been on the rise over the years. According to recent statistics, not only are they occurring more often in more places, but they are also getting stronger. That means more damage, more often.
Statistics might be helpful for getting a numerical view of things, but they don’t always mean something will happen to your business, right? Even if you never see a damaging natural disaster at your place of work, though, manmade disasters are always a possibility everywhere.
Maybe you aren’t excited to think through all the potential risks your business could face, but staying ahead of things that could interrupt your workflow is important. When you are prepared, you can move forward without fear of losses.
With the instances of natural disasters continuing to grow every year, forming a plan can go a long way in saving lives and preventing extensive damage. Getting to know your risks better can help you take action before they happen, which means you can stay better protected from potential flooding, severe weather or fires.
Not only do both natural and manmade disasters leave behind physical damage, but they can also be one of the most financially challenging situations your business will ever have to walk through. When you have a plan, you can make sure your team is safe and your finances are, too.
A plan can also mean you get back to work as soon as it is safe to do so after a disaster. Many businesses that are forced to close because of damage never reopen. Creating a plan means you and your employees will know exactly what to do and you won’t miss a minute of work.
If you are wondering where to begin, start with a call to SERVPRO®. Our Emergency Ready Plan is the perfect business solution to get you through any possible disaster. With a plan curated exactly to your needs, you can stay safe and protected even before anything ever happens.
To get started, our team will provide a free assessment of your business. We will address every potential situation you might face and create actions to get through all of them. Our experienced crew will walk you through everything you need to do before, during and after a disaster strikes.
When a storm or other potential disaster is predicted, you can take steps to prevent losses. You may need staff members assigned to secure paperwork and prepare electronics, or your work ahead of a disaster might require getting your building ready to avoid damage. Whatever your needs are, you won’t have to rush through getting directions out—with a plan in place, everyone will know what to do as soon as you say “go.”
The Emergency Ready Plan will also include a solid communication plan. A chain of command will be created to ensure your team knows who they can expect to get instructions from, as well as who to report to throughout the event. Once it is safe to do so, our team will head to your property in order to start restoring damage while you resume operations, whether on site, remotely or at an alternate location.
Your emergency plan should be a complete package in order to best meet your needs—and that is exactly what the Emergency Ready Plan is. We make sure your business avoids financial losses and your employees stay safe. You not only get a complete plan to get through anything, but you also get our experienced team and 24⁄7 availability. It’s our goal to restore your property fast so you can keep your business going.
