What is an ERP?

12/9/2019 (Permalink)

Most companies prepare for the unexpected, hence the reason most have insurance policies in place. However an insurance policy typically only comes into play after a loss has occurred. Which begs the questions, how can we be proactive in our approach?

Larger companies have develop contingency plans that upper management is aware of in the event of disaster. At SERVPRO, we work with our commercial accounts to create an Emergency Readiness Profile that even the least experienced employee can follow.


Our Emergency Readiness Profile is a tool created to more properly identify best practices to mitigating losses. Additionally it allows our crews to arrive more quickly on site; research has shown the quicker trained professionals arrive on site the less damage that your building and property will sustain.

To have your team properly prepared via an ERP, please contact our Sales Department!

Safety First 

Studies show that cooking is the main cause for most home fires and burn related injuries. With Thanksgiving being the busiest cooking day of the year.  It's good to know some safety tips to have a safe, and happy Thanksgiving holiday.  

  • Never leave food that is cooking unattended, especially when frying or broiling food. The stove should be turned off if you must leave the kitchen
  • Keep anything that could easily catch fire a safe distance away from flames, or hot surfaces. Examples such as; potholders,towels of any material, paper or plastic bags, and wooden utensils.
  • Cooking surfaces should be kept clean to prevent grease buildup.
  • Always make sure to check the kitchen before leaving the home or going to bed.  Check to see that all ovens, stoves and appliances are shut off and stored correctly. 
  • Have a fire extinguisher near by, and know how to properly use it if needed. Also smoke alarms should be checked monthly to see if properly functioning. 

SERVPRO of Jefferson, Franklin, & Perry Counties wishes you a safe and happy holiday season!  Gobble Gobble!
