Planning for Emergencies at Your Business | SERVPRO of Conway & Faulkner Counties
Disaster can strike at any time, and the possibility of suffering a disaster at your workplace is actually increasing. The number of natural disasters has increased steadily over the last five years. Not only that, but these instances are becoming stronger and more destructive in nature, which means they leave behind more extensive damage than ever before.
While that might sound scary, we don’t want you to panic! Preparing for these types of situations can help you navigate these scenarios more smoothly.
Knowing what to expect and how to handle each situation is key to keeping your team safe and your business afloat. We explain more about preparing for disasters below.
Since the frequency of natural disasters have been increasing over the years, having a plan can save lives and reduce your damage risk. For example, preparing for the possibility of a flood or a fire can help you react quicker and get your employees to safety right away.
Natural or manmade disasters can cause widespread damage to your property, but they can also be a strain on your budget financially. Creating a plan ahead of time can help minimize the cost of recovery and ensure your staff get their wages in a timely manner.
Sometimes damage can be so severe that businesses have to close during the repair process, and oftentimes, those businesses never reopen. We are here to help make sure that doesn’t happen to you!
Your SERVPRO® team has the perfect solution to your preparation needs. Our Emergency Ready Plan is a comprehensive guide that will help you navigate the most uncertain circumstances and will be your solution to staying in control of any damage situation.
Our team will start by assessing your business by laying out the different threats that are unique to your property. For example, a small storefront that sells local goods will have a much different risk level than a large warehouse that works with heat or chemicals.
We will explain what to do before, during and after each disaster. Preparation before certain events might include moving important paperwork to a water-safe location or creating go-bags for your employees to take with them as they get out safely.
Our Emergency Ready Plan will also lay out the important communication strategies to follow. We will create a reliable chain of command when it comes to communicating with authorities and your other team members, and it will also designate who is in charge of what during a disaster.
Your Emergency Ready Plan will help you navigate any weather disaster or manmade disaster with ease and confidence. If you know exactly what to do and when to do it, your losses will be minimized and your business will be restored and back open before you know it.
