SERVPRO offers info to local business owners

There is no predicting when or where a disaster may strike, leaving property destruction and damage in its wake. But National Preparedness Month, sponsored each year in September by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), focuses the nation’s attention on the steps home and business owners can and should take to be ready to respond to emergencies, including natural and man-made disasters.

“SERVPRO® professionals know a lot about disaster cleanup,” Executive Vice President of Servpro Industries, Inc. Rick Isaacson, said in a press release. “And one of the most important things we know is that it’s better to take steps to prevent or minimize damage from an unexpected weather event or other disaster than it is to try to clean up after it. That’s why we emphasize the importance of readiness to our clients through SERVPRO’s ‘Emergency READY Program.’ Being ‘READY’ can make the difference between moving back into your home or losing it – or staying in business or closing the doors forever.”

As a National Sponsor of the American Red Cross Ready Rating Program and the originator of SERVPRO’s Emergency READY Program, SERVPRO® is uniquely positioned to offer Hendricks County-area home and business owners’ guidance on a robust, two-step approach to disaster planning and recovery, encompassing both readiness and recovery planning, according to Isaacson.

Step one includes readiness planning. Knowledge is power, and the American Red Cross Ready Rating program is designed to help home and business owners assess their level of preparedness for weather-related or other emergencies in advance. This free, web-based program, available at readyrating.org, walks responsible parties at businesses, organizations and schools through a 123-point self-assessment of their establishment’s level of preparedness for weather-related or other emergencies, and then offers tips and best practices to help improve their readiness.
