Is your business ready?
Research indicates that only around 50 percent of businesses that suffer an incapacitating disaster are able to recover and resume operations... and only 29 percent remain in business just two years later. While natural disasters certainly play their role, it is estimated that 95% of disasters affecting regular business operations are internal or man-made. Electrical fires, kitchen fires, leaky plumbing, and faulty sprinkler systems are just a few sources of potential loss for any business. Many business owners have an emergency contingency plan in place, but few have a plan specifically to stabilize and mitigate damage efficiently in order to get back into their buildings following a disaster.
Most full contingency plans are made up of three main parts: incident response, disaster recovery and business continuity. SERVPRO’s Emergency READY Profile addresses both incident response and disaster recovery, making it a vital component of any existing contingency plan.
Developing a SERVPRO® ERP for your business affords you an immediate plan of action, limiting the amount of time your business is inactive. Timely mitigation minimizes the effects of water and fire damage, allowing your property and business to be restored at an advanced rate. Knowing what to do, who to call, and what to expect, in advance, is the key to timely mitigation.
