Fire and Flood Disasters Unfortunately Happen in Dane County, Madison, WI
SERVPRO® Industries, Inc. is once again proud to be a member of the National Preparedness Month Coalition and is committed to helping the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in its efforts to promote the importance of preparedness planning.
National Preparedness Month (NPM) is an observance each September to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time.
This is a great time for business owners in Dane County, WI, to review their emergency preparedness and business continuity plans.
Are You Ready?
As many as 50% of businesses close down following a disaster, according to the latest research. 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 if your business is affected by a disaster, they don't necessarily have to be.
It is important to prepare long before a disaster occurs. Consider the following steps to help you better prepare for a water or fire emergency.
- Sign up for local alerts and warnings, download apps, and check access to wireless emergency alerts.
- Develop and test emergency communication plans.
- Assemble and/or update emergency supplies.
- Collect and safeguard critical documents.
- Document property and assets and obtain appropriate insurance.
Whether it’s a flood, fire, or extreme winter weather, we must work together to help ensure our families, businesses, places of worship, and neighborhoods are prepared. Contact SERVPRO of Dane County West to find out how we can help make it “Like it never even happened,” if disaster strikes your life.
When Disaster Strikes, the Key to Business Continuity is having a Readiness Plan in Place.
We Can Help!
SERVPRO® Industries, LLC has developed the Emergency READY Program to help business owners create an Emergency READY Profile (ERP) for their facility at NO CHARGE. The business owner works with SERVPRO of Dane County West to gather and document information that will become critical if a disaster strikes. Once the ERP is created, business owners can access their information 24/7 online and using SERVPRO’s free smartphone app.
An ERP assessment of your facility contains only the critical information needed in the event of an emergency. It provides facility details such as shut-off valve locations, priority areas, and priority contact information.
A SERVPRO of Dane County West Representative will come to your facility to take pictures of critical areas such as exits, stairwells, elevators, electrical room, alarm location, and water shut-off areas, so they are incorporated in the ERP accessible on the smartphone app and/or a printed out document. They will also identify and tag water shut-off valves, priority areas, and priority contact information. In addition, they will also identify the line of command for authorizing work to begin and who to call in the event of an emergency.
Whether you are away for lunch, on vacation, or it’s after hours, wouldn’t it be nice to have access to your vital building data and emergency contact information directly from your smartphone, 24/7/365? Now you can start with the FREE SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile!
