ServPro teams up with Red Cross


GALLATIN, TN — ServPro® recently joined forces with the American Red Cross to help with the Ready Rating™ program, according to a press release.

The Ready Rating program aims to help businesses, schools and organizations prepare for disasters and other emergencies.

“The Red Cross Ready Rating Program allows individuals to assess their readiness for a disaster, so they can take all necessary steps before disaster strikes to protect their property from damage and loss,” Rick Isaacson, executive vice president of ServPro, said in the release. “But, when disaster does strike, knowing what to do and who to call saves time – and fast response is key to minimizing damage and downtime. That’s where ServPro’s Emergency READY Program can help. Together, these two programs offer maximum peace of mind to businesses and other organizations.”

The program lays out Five Essential Steps to Preparedness:

  1. Commit to preparedness
  2. Conduct a hazard vulnerability assessment
  3. Develop an emergency response plan
  4. Implement your emergency response plan
  5. Help your community get prepared.

Both the American Red Cross and ServPro stress the need for pre-disaster planning and urge business and others to create an Emergency READY Program.

“Up to 40 percent of businesses never re-open their doors after such disasters; ServPro’s partnership will enable more businesses, schools and organizations to become better prepared,” said Tom Heneghan, manager of Business Continuity Programs for Red Cross. “We are excited to have ServPro join us in community outreach efforts to educate and highlight the importance of community preparedness in neighborhoods across the country.”
