Statistically speaking, up to 50% of businesses fail to completely recover after natural disasters. For the most part, the businesses that are able to recover had formulated an emergency plan beforehand. Similar to an insurance policy, this preparedness strategy can decrease anxiety before a disaster and promote an overall calm attitude through confidence that your business won’t suffer too much damage.
Though there are many different kinds of natural disasters, they can all be dangerous and equally important to pay attention to. Therefore, it is important to prepare for all of these types despite their size.
To help you to put an emergency plan in place for your home or business, SERVPRO has created Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) app for tablets and smartphones. This free app is easy to use and will be helpful in the creation and management of your own emergency plan, keeping it simple and easy to understand.
The app makes it easy to complete the formulating process, taking virtually no time at all. It also eliminates steps that would take time by verifying which SERVPRO you prefer and allowing for more rapid completion of beginning authorization work, preserving your time and money.
An added perk of the app is immediate access to information including shut-off valve locations, important areas, and contact information during emergencies, ensuring that you will be “ready for whatever happens”.
