Many businesses do not adequately have a solid emergency response plan to tackle disasters. Study shows that about 50% of companies shut down after a disaster.

A storm or fire can cause a devastating blow to a business—the more reason to secure your business with an Emergency-Ready Profile (ERP). Having an ERP makes it easy to tackle the disaster quickly before it escalates. Many commercial properties have emergency safety systems but don't know how to use them effectively. However, staff training on how to use safety equipment is valuable, and showing staff members what to do immediately if there's a fire outbreak or a flood to mitigate the impact.

With an ERP set in place, people will know the immediate course of action to take should there be a disaster. What to do and how to get the job done are critical things to be noted. SERVPRO of Citrus Heights/Roseville and Carmichael continuously educates business owners on preparing them for water and fire damage. This is to help commercial owners survive the disaster mitigate and restore damages.

The benefits of having an ERP are sharing helpful information like escape routes, gathering points, etc, and keeping documents safe before they get destroyed. The documents necessary to the business must be saved electronically on the cloud, and the physical copy must be kept in waterproof storage.

Have a detailed building map that shows the structural details of the building. The emergency plan is encouraged to be practiced by all workers for safety. Emergency exits should be chosen and boldly indicated. Emergency safety systems like a water sprinkler, smoke detector, fire extinguishers, pumps, and more should be kept in strategic places for use. Safety equipment should be inspected and maintained regularly to avoid a breakdown during an emergency. Set clear boundaries of activities to be done in office space. Restrict cooking and smoking to the kitchen and cafeteria.

It may be difficult for some businesses to design a fire safety plan. However, you can outsource it to professionals. SERVPRO of Citrus Heights/Carmichael and Roseville is present 24/7 to attend any emergency or consultation. Why not call us now to have agent work on your ERP.
