Servpro urges disaster readiness


GALLATIN, TN —Servpro® making use of National Preparedness Month to urge business owners to conduct a preparedness assessment and create a disaster recovery plan, according to a press release.

FEMA sponsors National Preparedness Month each September in an effort to encourage both residents and businesses to prepare for unexpected disasters.

According to FEMA, up to 40 percent of businesses never reopen following a major disaster; just a couple of inches of water can cause thousands of dollars of damage, which is why Servpro is taking the opportunity to encourage business owners to a plan ahead.

"When it comes to disaster readiness planning, it just makes sense to take advantage of the tools that are available," Servpro Steen, CEO of Servpro, said in the release. "The first few minutes after a disaster strikes are often chaotic and very emotional. Minutes lost searching for shut-off valves, fire suppression system controls, or emergency contact numbers can mean further property loss, and worse."

SERVPRO® professionals specialize in disaster restoration, cleanup and repair services.

"When disaster strikes, you need to be ready to immediately assess the situation and take the first critical steps to protect your employees and property from further damage,” Steen added. “The key is having a plan in place before you need it.”
