According to FEMA, around 40 - 60% of small businesses never reopen their doors after facing a disaster. Even knowing that, most small businesses haven’t put in the time to create an emergency response plan so that they can minimize the impact of a disaster. SERVPRO will create a free Emergency Ready Profile for any business that wants one, but do you know how it can benefit your business?

  1. You’ll know where to find the utility shutoffs. Depending on the size and nature of a disaster, it might be imperative that somebody immediately shuts off the gas, water, and/or electricity. Even if you personally know where the shutoffs are located, if you aren’t around at the time of a disaster, the role would fall on an available employee. SERVPRO’s Emergency Ready Profile marks all of the shutoff locations (and shows pictures), so your team can quickly do what’s needed.
  1. You’ll have an immediate plan of action. The longer your business is inactive, the less likely you’ll recover. With our Emergency Ready Profile, you’ll not only have a guide for you and your employees, but you’ll also have instant access to your local SERVPRO professionals. The faster we’re there to clean up the damage, the quicker you’re able to reopen your doors.
  1. You’ll have an incredible asset at no cost. In most cases, you would have to dedicate precious time and resources to create a quality emergency readiness plan, which is often a reason they’re never made. But SERVPRO’s franchises have the tools and skills to assemble an Emergency Ready Profile in a short amount of time. The only thing they need from you is a few minutes to go over some basic questions to get them started. If you’re wondering what the catch is, it’s just that if you ever do have a disaster, SERVPRO hopes you’ll call them for help!

If you’ve never thought about creating an emergency plan for your business, it’s time to start considering it. Because disaster rarely offers a warning, you don’t want to be caught off-guard when it strikes.

When the fires in Santa Barbara happened, SERVPRO of Westminster was quick to respond to all calls requesting for assistance. Read what one business owner's experience was with our team:

"I want to give a big old shoutout to Luis and his team! After the Thomas Fire, here in California, my interior design studio in Montecito had a lot of smoke and ash damage. I was beside myself as I had only been open 6 months when this happened. The idea of starting over was just too much to bear. Luis to the rescue!!! He and his team came in and cleaned every single fabric swatch, over 8000 of them!!! They ran air filters to rid the air of any signs of smoke and even did the windows. Thanks Luis and the rest of the team!!! My store has never looked better and I am eternally grateful for everything you did for me in just a few days! I have nothing but good things to say about Luis and my experience with SERVPRO. They get the job done and immaculately." - Blake W.

National Police Week - May 13 - May 19

Commercial National Police Week - May 13 - May 19 A few of Westminster PD finest and SERVPRO of Westminster team posing for National Police Week breakfast.

Breakfast on us! 

This week we joined many others across the nation in celebrating National Police Memorial Week with Westminster Police Department. It was such a privilege for SERVPRO Westminster staff to treat our local law enforcement during their week of recognition. With almost 100 breakfast burritos, 4 dozen donuts and gallons of coffee and juice, it was one of the most rewarding community appreciation events thus far. We truly enjoyed the tour of the facility and even more so meeting the many wonderful men and women of WPD; including Police Chief Ralph Ornelas. If you have not had the chance to meet him, he is best described in the words of Mayor Tri Ta “Chief Ornelas is very humble and honest.” * This statement is true and is recognizable in every interaction with Chief Ornelas. We look forward to hosting future community events for our law enforcement and adding National Police Memorial to our annual lists of events. Thank you all (past and present) who have served in law enforcement.

BONUS: Did you know National Police Week was initiated in 1962 by President Kennedy? However according to nleomf.org " President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police week."
