Faster To Any Size Disaster
24 Hour Emergency Service
American Red Cross + SERVPRO = A Community Prepared
SERVPRO, is a national sponsor of the American Red Cross Ready Rating™ program, a free, web-based program designed to help businesses, schools, and organizations become better prepared for emergencies. SERVPRO of East Evansville believes that preparedness is key to being “Faster to any disaster.”
Keys to the program are the following Five Essential Steps to Preparedness:
- Commit to Preparedness
- Conduct a Hazard Vulnerability Assessment
- Develop an Emergency Response Plan
- Implement your Emergency Response Plan
- Help Your Community Get Prepared
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.
"Through the generosity of SERVPRO, the Red Cross will help empower workplaces to re-open more quickly after natural or man-made disasters such as water main breaks, medical emergencies, power outages, tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, and fires through the Ready Rating Program," said Tom Heneghan, manager of Business Continuity Programs for Red Cross.
The time to prepare for a disaster is before it happens, having a plan to deal with the aftermath if disaster does strike is just good business and common sense. SERVPRO specializes in disaster restoration, cleanup and repair services, helping to remediate damage, making it "Like it never even happened," for both commercial and residential customers.
