What To Do After A Fire

1/14/2021 (Permalink)

A fire is an event you never want to plan for, however it's always best to have an emergency plan ready in case of a fire. 

We get asked a lot of times how does one exactly prepare for a fire. The first part of the plan is the most important which is to designate a specific area to meet at to ensure everyone got out safely. Next make sure to call 911 to report the fire to emergency officials. 

Having a detailed post-fire plan is also essential to get back into your home as soon as possible. Don't forget to make calls to cancel certain services and to order replacement items such as credit or debit cards. 

Be sure to call the experts of fire damage restoration at SERVPRO to make sure they are on-site immediately to help get things rolling and get you back home as soon as possible. We work with every insurance group to offer a fast, efficient and hassle free restoration process.

Commercial Emergency Ready Profile

1/14/2021 (Permalink)

Having spent most of my life dedicated to business operations I realize how easy it is to get caught up in the day-to-day aspect of keeping it running. 

One thing that I constantly find is that most businesses do not have a plan in place of an emergency.  Most businesses don't train staff on what things to do to potentially save a business in face of an accident or disaster.  

The importance of showing staff where the shut off for water is located in case of a water break can save your business considerable time and money. 

SERVPRO has a free solution for our local businesses under our Emergency Ready Program or ERP. This includes a interactive App that pinpoints areas of interest including shut offs as well as emergency contacts to ensure your business is ready for whatever happens.  Also we are including a free Matterport scan of your business that gives you a full virtual walkthrough of your business . It helps to serve as a way to have a full visual inventory of your business as well as a way to map out points of interest.

Our ERP and Matterport scan for our local businesses is FREE! Call Gary today and schedule a time to have this setup for your business at 618-435-8200.
