We hate to think about it, but any business in the Highland Park area could suffer damage at any time. Natural disasters are occurring more frequently and have become stronger in the last five years, leaving behind significantly more damage in their wake.

Not only that, but manmade disasters and accidents can cause just as much damage. It can be overwhelming to be a business owner these days!

While preventing damage to your business isn’t entirely possible, it is possible to prepare for as many different scenarios as possible.

Why Having an Emergency Plan Can Save Your Business

Since it is simply a fact that natural disasters are occurring more frequently, it is more important than ever to plan ahead. Strong storms and unexpected situations can put your employees at risk and can lead to catastrophic damage to your business if you haven’t done any sort of preparation work.

Disaster situations certainly will cause significant property damage, but they also can cause significant financial issues that can linger for months or even years. The insurance claim process, recovery costs, and lost revenue and wages could affect your entire staff and the future of your business.

Depending on how catastrophic the situation is, you may have to temporarily close your business during the repairs. Many businesses end up having to do this, only to never reopen again.

Your Emergency Plan Creation

A reliable emergency plan is exactly what you need to have in order to avoid serious damage and disaster. The SERVPRO® Emergency Ready Plan is what you need!

Our team offers this planning service to all of the businesses in the New Center and Highland Park area, and it includes everything you need to know in order to overcome any sort of disaster situation.

We spend time at your business evaluating it and doing a full assessment of the different types of risks or threats you could suffer on a daily basis. It could include weather threats, fire threats or general emergency situations. We help you plan for what to do before, during and after these situations so you are ready for if/when they do occur.

For example, we can suggest places to store your important documents to avoid water damage, what to pack in your employees’ go-bags for an emergency evacuation and where to store your fire extinguishers for easy access.

We also focus your plan on your business’ communication strategy. Knowing who is in charge of what and having a clear chain of command can ensure everyone will respond quickly and appropriately during a true emergency.

Your business deserves to overcome whatever type of disaster comes your way. Our Emergency Ready Plan guide is the solution you need to weather the unexpected with confidence.
