Why Your Business Needs an Emergency Plan | SERVPRO of East Lansing/Haslett
Have you noticed an increase in natural disasters over the last few years? Statistically speaking, not only have natural disasters been increasing over the last five years, but they have also been growing in strength. That means more damage, more often.
Statistics aren’t always the most reliable tool, though, and perhaps your business never sees a natural disaster that causes physical damage. Even if that is true, there is still a real potential for manmade issues that could happen and leave your business at a loss.
Thinking about your risks might not be something you enjoy doing, but it is crucial in order to stay ahead of ways that you could experience business interruptions. With a plan, you can stay focused on work knowing that your business and your team are protected.
As the number of natural disaster continues to rise, making a plan is an important way to protect the lives of your employees and prevent extensive damage to your business. Getting to know these threats can help you take steps ahead of possible floods, fire or storms.
When a disaster strikes, not only are you at risk for the physical damage to your property, but you are also at risk for financial losses. Disasters are one of the most financially challenging situations a business can face. With a plan, you can make sure your team stays safe and your finances are protected.
With a plan, you can get back to work faster. A large majority of businesses never find a way to reopen after they have been affected by a disaster that forced them to shut down. If you have a plan, your team can get back to work as soon as it is safe to do so, no matter what kind of disaster your business endured.
Even when you know having a plan is important, it can be challenging to create one. Fortunately, SERVPRO® has the perfect solution for your business. With an Emergency Ready Plan that is personalized to meet your needs, you can rest a little easier knowing you are prepared.
In order to build the perfect plan for you, we will start with a free assessment of your business. We will address your unique needs in order to create a course of action that protects your employees and mitigates as much loss as possible. Our team will walk with you to help you better understand what to do before, during and after an event occurs.
Before a disaster can strike, we will lay out the steps you should take to be prepared. This could include getting important paperwork to a safe place, preparing your team to start working remotely or even shoring up your building to prevent damage. Your plan will make sure everyone knows what to do from the moment you say “go.”
Communication will be a crucial piece of your plan every step of the way as well. Your employees will understand the chain of command and know exactly who they will be getting directions from. After a disaster and as soon as it is safe, our team will respond to your physical location in order to start restoration right away while your team gets back to work. If your crew can’t work remotely, we will include alternate physical locations for them to report to.

We will make a plan that protects you financially and helps you avoid a total closure.
