It’s Not Too Late to Get an Emergency Readiness Plan in Place for Your Phoenix Business
When an unexpected disaster occurs, many businesses, regardless of size, struggle to recover in the aftermath entirely—having a solid plan in place for your employees to be prepared for emergencies can make the difference between surviving a disaster or not. Does your business have an emergency readiness plan? It’s not too late to get one from SERVPRO of East Phoenix!
How unexpected situations impact businesses
Some businesses may never recover following an unexpected circumstance, having lost too much time, clientele or inventory during the recovery process, or property damaged beyond repair. A fire to a business is devastating and can cause it to shut down completely; for many companies, regardless of size, extensive downtime can mean a substantial financial impact. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), almost 40 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors after a disaster. However, the ones that do survive usually have a preparedness plan in place.
What is an emergency readiness plan (ERP)?
While an emergency readiness plan can’t stop an unexpected incident from occurring, it can help a business be ready to handle a disaster during the event and be better prepared to recover after a disaster. One way SERVPRO helps a business of any size be prepared is with the ERP profile. Pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind. And knowing you are "Ready for whatever happens" speaks trust to your clients and employees that in the event your business is affected by a disaster, they don’t necessarily have to be.
By developing a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile for your business, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action, regardless of the situation. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation. It can help minimize how water damage, fire damage, severe vandalism, or any other situation can affect your business.
