ERP's - Making Business Owner's Breathe Easier During a Disaster
National Emergency Preparedness Month has just past but that doesn't mean you can't make preparedness top of mind now in October! We might not be in the path of a hurricanes like Florence but earthquakes and tornadoes are natural disasters this area has experienced - we all need to have a plan.
And although natural disasters are very scary. Experts estimate that only 5% of the disasters affecting businesses are caused by nature.
Man-made disasters have the ability to cause as much damage and be as scary. A pipe burst or a fire could happen to anyone anytime.
“Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead But You Can.”
40% of businesses never recover after a disaster. The majority of business that do survive already had a preparedness plan.
Have you heard of SERVPRO's Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) app? This app is really convenient for businesses or churches because it would help them get ready for any sized disaster. And Its free of charge!
Our ERP is designed to be a “snapshot” of each building owned or managed by a business. It provides critical information needed for emergency preparation.
The key to mitigation is knowing in advance :
• What to do
• Who to call
• What to expect
The app has information and pictures. Jessica, our Marketing Manager, would go to your business and find this information for you. You just have to download the app for free and gain access to it. You could also receive this information printed or by email.
If you are a business owner, call Jessica, if not talk to your employer or your church and make sure they have an emergency plan. If they need help, we can help them for free.
Let’s explain our app:
• Overview - Location / Parking
• Building Access
• Utility contacts & Shut off
• Emergency & Key Contacts
With this plan, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action.
For us, it is important that you are “Ready for whatever happens”.
