Create a Business Plan for Emergencies | SERVPRO of Talladega, Clay & Randolph Counties
Over the last five years, there has been a significant increase in natural disasters. Looking at the stats can be pretty alarming, too, as you will note that not only are natural disasters occurring more often, but they are getting stronger and leaving behind more damage then ever before.
Statistics don’t always represent our individual truths, though, and there is always a real possibility that your business will never be damaged during a natural disaster. Even if that does hold true, manmade disasters are still possible and can leave your business reeling.
Regardless of where they come from, thinking about the disasters that could affect your business is hard. But it is crucial to take time to consider your risks so that you can create a plan that protects you from them.
As we continue to face more and more natural disasters each year, making a plan for your business is the best way to protect yourself against them. An emergency plan can save lives and lower your chance of extreme loss. Getting to know the risks that threaten your business means you can take steps in order to be prepared for storms, fire or floods.
When a disaster hits, it not only leaves behind what can be massive amounts of damage, but it can also strap you with a large financial loss. When you create an emergency and business continuity plan, you will not only ensure your team’s safety but the safety of your financial future as well.
Creating a plan ahead of a disaster can also mean you get back to work faster after the event has passed. There are a large number of businesses that are never able to reopen after a forced closure due to either a natural or manmade disaster. With a plan, your business will never have to be included in that number.
So, how do you build a plan that meets all of your needs? A call to our team at SERVPRO® is the best way to get started. With our Emergency Ready Plan, you get a tailor-made protection plan that covers your every base. Your plan will start the moment you need it and see you through every step needed to get things back to normal.
In order to start building your plan, our team will first provide a total assessment of your business to identify your specific risks and needs. We will work with you to lay out the exact path you and your employees should take to weather any disaster well before, during and afterward.
When a disaster is headed your way, you can kick your plan into action and take steps to protect your staff and your building. Your plan will outline exactly what to do, assigning tasks like handling paperwork, electronics and building prep to you and your team in order to limit the amount of damage you might incur. With very few instructions, everyone will know how to respond the moment you say “go.”
Communication will also be a centerpiece of your plan, laying out exactly how to stay connected throughout the event. A chain of command will be established so that information is distributed quickly and correctly and everyone can continue to proceed with business.
As soon as it can safely be done, our SERVPRO crew will head to your property and start restoration efforts. While we get the repairs going, your team can get work going, whether that’s on site, remotely or in an alternate work location, as laid out in your plan.
With an Emergency Ready Plan, you get a complete package that will protect your people while securing your financial future. Your plan not only gives you each step to take to keep work going, but it comes with the backing of a national brand and 24⁄7 availability to highly trained restoration professionals. Our goal is your goal—to keep life moving forward.
