Pennsville Township joins the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile
After working with Pennsville Township SERVPRO offered the Emergency Ready Profile to Township Committee. The Township Committee thought it was a great opportunity and agreed to join the ERP Program!
SERVPRO of Salem County will work with the Emergency Management Coordinator to walk through the building photographing water and gas shut off valves, take pictures of all important building material, created a detailed sketch of the building, as well as made all contingency plans already put in place all accessible in one place for the Township.
In the event of an emergency time is money. Being able to stop a broken pipe due to knowning where the shut off valve is via the phone app can help mitigate any property damage. If a fire breaks out having all of your account numbers for each provider accessible to just click is much easier than trying to figure out passwords that were stored on your computer.
The team at SERVPRO of Salem County is helping Pennsville Township be "Ready for whatever happens."
If you are interested in becoming a Ready Business email SERVPRO of Salem County at ERP@SERVPROsalemcounty.com
An hour of your time to put the final steps on your contingency plan is worth it when Fire or Water Damage happens.
SERVPRO Recognizes National Preparedness Month with a Reminder to Home and Business Owners: “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.”
September is National Preparedness Month (http://www.ready.gov/September), an annual event sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to raise awareness about the importance of preparing—in advance—for the unexpected. In support of this initiative, Craig Nunan, owner of SERVPRO® of Salem County, encourages Salem property owners to take the following two steps now to protect their family, home, and business in the aftermath of a disaster.
- Review and update your emergency preparedness plan, including business and life continuity plans. If you don’t yet have a plan, use the tools provided by FEMA to get started. (https://www.ready.gov/make-a-plan)
- Collect and store time-critical information, like the location of shutoff valves, fire suppression system controls, and emergency contact numbers electronically, where it is immediately available to assist first responders.
“Evacuation plans and emergency supply kits help you survive a disaster, but a comprehensive emergency preparedness plan helps you recover from a disaster,” said Nunan. “The most effective response to any emergency is a fast response. That’s why having critical system and contact information at your fingertips is so important. A quick and effective response helps minimize repairs and downtime, helping both businesses and families get back on track in less time, with less stress.”
SERVPRO offers tools for both commercial and residential property owners to help them minimize damage and recover quickly from emergencies. The SERVPRO READY app stores essential contact and property information electronically where it can be accessed with a mobile device in seconds if disaster strikes. Both home and business owners can download the free app at https://ready.SERVPRO.com/home/mobileapp. Local business owners can take an additional preparedness step by designating SERVPRO of Salem County as their disaster mitigation and restoration provider. SERVPRO professionals will conduct a no-cost assessment of the facility and assist the owner in completing a comprehensive Emergency READY Profile® (ERP) and storing that profile in the READY app.
“Rapid response from a disaster cleanup and restoration specialist can help the property owner evaluate options, start the insurance process, and take the right steps from the beginning to bring their property back to normal,” said Nunan. “Even in the confusion and panic that often surround a disaster, a property owner or manager using the SERVPRO READY app can reach out for expert help right from the scene, using a cell phone.”
SERVPRO® of Salem County 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.
