If you suffer a disaster to your business, are you prepared?
The month of September is approaching and September has been declared National Preparedness Month. In recent years, many different types of disasters have affected homes and businesses in Northern Michigan. Between Hail Storms, Wind Storms, and Blizzards, these are all types of natural disasters that can threaten your home, business and community. Unexpected Fire and Water Damage can also affect your facility and business. During September's National Preparedness Month, SERVPRO of Gaylord & Cheboygan wants you and your customers to be aware of the steps to take to help prepare for Mother Nature's worst.
Do You Have A Plan?
How quickly your company can get back to your business after a tornado, fire or flood often depends on the proactive emergency planning done today. Having an Emergency Ready Plan can save you time and stress and can help save a life and cut down on business interruption.
SERVPRO'S EMERGENCY READY PLAN
An Emergency Ready Plan has many useful tips. It has all of your emergency contacts. From electrical to plumber to your internet/server provider and your insurance company. In the Ready Plan, it also shows where all of the shutoffs are (Gas, Electric, Water, Sprinkler System, Servers). It has detailed pictures and directions to where all of these shutoffs are located. You can access all of this information on your tablet or phone on our Mobile App when you sign up. This information is user ID and password protected.
The ERP establishes your local SERVPRO Franchise Professional as your disaster mitigation and restoration provider, giving you access to over 20 years experience and a system more than 1,700 Franchises strong. There is no charge to help your business and facility set up this disaster plan.
Knowing what to do or who to call is key to a quick response and timely mitigation. Having a plan in place may help minimize the amount of time your business is inactive and get you back in the building following a disaster. Peace of mind, be proactive.
