Prepare for an Emergency with SERVPRO's Free ERP App
SERVPRO of North Central Mesa Recognizes National Preparedness Month with a Reminder to Residential and Commercial Property Owners:
“Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.”
SERVPRO offers a no-cost tools to help property owners prepare a comprehensive emergency readiness plan
September is National Preparedness Month, an annual event sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to raise awareness about the importance of preparing—in advance—for unexpected emergencies. In support of this initiative, SERVPRO of North Central Mesa, encourages Mesa AZ property owners to take the following 3 steps now to protect their families, homes, and businesses for the aftermath of a disaster.
- Review and update your emergency preparedness plan, including business and life continuity plans. If you are unfamiliar with and/or don’t yet have a plan, use the tools provided by FEMA to get started.
- Collect and store time-critical information, like the location of shutoff valves, fire suppression system controls, and emergency contact numbers electronically, where it is immediately available to assist first responders.
- Store important vital paper documents in watertight/fire proof containers.
Because SERVPRO knows the time to create a disaster readiness plan is before you need it, they have developed the SERVPRO Emergency READY Program to help business owners create an Emergency READY Profile (ERP) for their facility, at no charge.
“Evacuation plans and emergency supply kits help you survive a disaster, but a comprehensive emergency preparedness plan helps you recover from a disaster,” said Williams. “The most effective response to any emergency is a fast response. That’s why having critical systems and contact information at your fingertips is so important. A quick and effective response helps minimize repairs and downtime, helping both businesses and families get back on track in less time, with less stress.”
SERVPRO offers tools for both commercial and residential property owners to help them minimize damage and recover quickly from emergencies. The SERVPRO READY app stores essential contact and property information electronically where it can be accessed with a mobile device in seconds if disaster strikes. Both home and business owners can download the free app at https://ready.SERVPRO.com/home/mobileapp. Local business owners can take an additional preparedness step by designating SERVPRO of North Central Mesa as their disaster mitigation and restoration provider. SERVPRO professionals will conduct a no-cost assessment of the facility and assist the owner in completing a comprehensive Emergency READY Profile® (ERP) and storing that profile in the READY app.
“Rapid response from a disaster cleanup and restoration specialist can help the property owner evaluate options, start the insurance process, and take the right steps from the beginning to bring their property back to normal,” said Williams. “Even in the confusion and panic that often surround a disaster, a property owner or manager using the SERVPRO READY app can reach out for expert help right from the scene, using a cell phone.”
