As business owners, we all know how important it is to have a plan. We plan for day-to-day activities, our year-end goals and even what we are going to serve at the next staff lunch. While these plans are all important and pretty predictable events, it is also important to plan for the unexpected.

Natural disasters and storm situations often take us by surprise or develop quickly, so having a reliable plan in place can help you and your staff stay safe in the face of chaos. Read on to learn how we can help your commercial property and business come up with an emergency plan.

The SERVPRO® Emergency Ready Plan

We are well-known for our top-notch restoration services, but we also have a commercial services division that is dedicated to helping our community navigate disaster. We can help you create an Emergency Ready Plan for your property to help you work through any sort of disaster situation that you can imagine. Having a plan ensures you stay in control and avoid permanent closures.

Did you know that about 25% of businesses don’t reopen after suffering from some sort of disaster? That has to be a heartbreaking decision, and it is our mission to make sure it’s a decision you never are faced with. Our Emergency Ready Plans outline what to do before, during and after a disaster situation so you always know what to expect.

How Is the Plan Created?

The first step is a no-cost assessment of your property. We will go from floor to floor to inspect every level and assess the different threats that could impact your business at any point.

We will then create a Profile Document based on the information we gather. This document outlines escape routes, fire extinguisher locations, first-aid kits and emergency exits. It can also be as detailed as outlining where to store important documents and how to create go-bags for employees to quickly grab while they exit.

We will also make sure to identify a strong chain of command for your employees so that everyone knows who is in charge of what throughout a typical disaster situation. For example, if your break room catches on fire, the document will have outlined who is supposed to call 911, who is in charge of getting the fire extinguisher and which staff are trained on how to use it.

Where We Step in to Help
The best kind of disaster is one that didn’t happen, but we know that many disaster situations are often not preventable. If you do everything right and still suffer some type of property damage, call SERVPRO of Bellevue for a quicker and more reliable recovery.

We will get right to work restoring and repairing every inch of your affected space, and we will work hard to minimize your downtime and get you back open for business in no time at all.

We can help you navigate disasters more confidently. Contact SERVPRO of Bellevue today.
