Emergency Preparedness in Pennypack/Bustleton

Why should we be prepared for disaster??

  1. We can minimize damages done to properties if we can address it as soon as possible
  2. We can save money
  3. Most importantly, we can save lives.

Throwing out a statistic…

Did you know that 50% of businesses may never recover after suffering a disaster? Of the businesses that do survive, had a preparedness plan in place.

Now you’re wondering what in the world is an Emergency Ready Profile?????

This profile is a plan to put in place at a business to help prepare for a disaster, and put everyone involved immediately in action when this occurs. What kind of disasters could occur you ask???

Well, anything could happen!! Disasters always strike without warning. Unfortunately, it is the nature of the beast, and nothing we can immediately control, but what we can control is our preparation and reaction. Types of disasters that could occur:

  • Natural disasters such as floods or earthquakes
  • Sump pump failures
  • Office fires
  • Pipe bursts
  • Leaks

...and so much more…

You are itching to learn about what’s included in an Emergency Ready Profile, so here we go….

This profile consists of essential information to know in case of disaster; it is a concise documentation that only contains the critical information necessary. This includes relevant contact information needed during a crisis event such as the maintenance contact, facility manager, insurance, plumber, etc. It also contains pictures and locations of the shut offs for utilities such as the water or gas. It provides a detailed description of where to go, if you need a key or not, and the contact information of that company. WOAH! Not only all of this, but you can download it as a MOBILE APP! That’s right, this gets more and more convenient as you keep reading.

Now, you’re thinking, what’s the catch?

Well, you would be wrong, because there is no catch! It is a NO COST ASSESSMENT OF YOUR FACILITY…

All it does is provide you with all the tools necessary during a disaster, and a SERVPRO professional will create this document for you and your employees at no cost.
