Natural disasters can occur at any point, and they are actually occurring more often across the country. The number of natural disasters has steadily increased over the course of the last five years, and they are becoming stronger and more destructive as well. That could mean some serious damage to your business if one comes our way!

While this is not a complete guarantee that a natural disaster will affect your business, it is always a possibility. There is also the possibility that a manmade problem or accident will leave you with serious damage.

Planning for the different scenarios can help you avoid significant damage and protect the future of your business.

Why Creating a Plan Matters

Because of the fact that natural disasters are occurring more frequently and are more destructive, planning ahead for them can reduce your risk of suffering serious damage and it can also help protect your staff. Different threats like fires, floods or storms can pop up quickly, so knowing what to do in the moment is crucial.

The sheer amount of damage left behind in the wake of a disaster is one thing, but it can also cause a serious financial strain on the future of your business.

Insurance issues, lost revenue and the cost of repairs can all work against you when it comes to reopening your business. Sometimes, it can all be too much, and businesses will close and never reopen. We are here to make sure that does not happen to you.

The Benefits of an Emergency Ready Plan

SERVPRO® is proud to offer our restoration services to our community, but we can also help you plan for the unexpected! Our Emergency Ready Plan is a planning service that we offer to every business owner in the Sumter area. It is a complete guide that will walk you through every sort of disaster situation that you could experience at your business.

We will come out to your place of business and assess your risk for different threats, like warehouse fires, floods if your building is in a flood zone, and different storm scenarios. We will outline what to do before, during and after each scenario.

The best way to stay in control during an emergency is to plan ahead! Our plans will include all kinds of things to do now so you can navigate a disaster situation more smoothly. This could include tips on how to store important documents, what to do with electronics when a water issue is present or even how to pack go-bags for your staff to grab during an emergency.

We will also ensure that a strong line of communication is developed within your staff. Having a chain of command and knowing who is in charge of what is crucial during a disaster situation.

Your business deserves to overcome whatever disaster situation it faces! Our Emergency Ready Plan can help you prepare for and overcome whatever life throws at you.
