National Preparedness Month 2019
Make Your Business “Prepared, Not Scared”
National Preparedness Month (NPM), is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster and emergency planning now and throughout the year. The 2019 theme is "Prepared, Not Scared".
Preparedness is a key strategic planning component that many businesses overlook. Business owners who think they are prepared for an emergency because exits are clearly marked and fire or earthquake drills are part of the regular routine really need to take another look at their preparations. A comprehensive emergency plan also contains critical information about the location of shut-off valves, fire suppression system controls, emergency contact numbers, and more - information that can save emergency responders precious time and help contain damage and minimize injury.
NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE ACTION
Because up to 40% of businesses affected by a natural or human caused disaster never reopen, SERVPRO offers a tool kit to assist business owners in getting their operations back to normal following a disaster. (Source : FEMA)
And because SERVPRO knows the time to create a disaster readiness plan is BEFORE you need it, we have developed the SERVPRO 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 to gather and document information that will become critical if a disaster strikes, and once the ERP is created, business owners have access to their information 24/7 online, and can control who has access to the information.
