How EPR can benefit your company
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?
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
