   Protect Your Business!

 As many as 50% of businesses close down following a disaster, according to the latest research. The thought process is “what is the likelihood it would happen to me.” We get busy in our work life and home life and just expect everyone to know how to handle an emergency situation.  Of the businesses that survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind. And knowing you are "Ready for whatever happens" speaks trust to your clients and employees that in the event your business is affected by a disaster, they don’t necessarily have to be. By developing a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile for your business, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation and can help minimize how water and fire damage can affect your business.

Designate one or two people to make sure emergency necessities are in date.
Did you know items expire? Fire extinguishers, first aid kits, smoke alarms all of these things can go out of date. Make sure to set a schedule to monitor these things. A great tip is when your filters get changed check the dates or batteries in the smoke alarms. Don’t rely on the alarms to notify you when the batteries are low!
