Why Every Business Needs an Emergency Ready Profile
Life throws challenges at us all the time, and as a business owner, you know are constantly overcoming new challenges that arise throughout the day. Most of the time, these challenges don’t slow down your everyday operations, but when disaster strikes, your entire company can be put on hold until it is resolved. A pipe bursting, break room fire, or flooded first floor can put business on hold for days, weeks, or months depending on severity. Oftentimes a business can never recover after major building damage.
While you never know what disaster will strike, preparing for the worst can mitigate secondary damage and reduce the time doors are closed. A SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) is a free assessment strategically designed to: 1) Prevent damage from any disaster 2) Establish clear communication and authorization for work to begin and 3) Help your business recover from any unexpected event. The ERP is not a full contingency plan but rather an addition to your existing plan.
An ERP is a free assessment of your company’s facilities and potential threats to their structural integrity. This profile is established by identifying high risk events that are specific to your facilities and addressing response options. An example would be a restaurant being at a high risk of fire damage, do to cooking and hazardous conditions in a kitchen, therefore planning where a fire would take place, identifying key access points such as switches to turn off gas and power lines and then having contact info for the local fire department, insurance agents, and SERVPRO of Minot to clean any damage that occurs.
As a restoration company, the sooner we receive a call, the sooner we can have staff on site. Establishing SERVPRO of Minot as your Priority Service Provider means we can respond to your emergency faster than normal and get your business open ahead of schedule.
