Did you know that 50% of businesses close their doors after a water loss? If only there was a way to prepare for water loss events, wait...there is! If you own or manage a commercial property, SERVPRO of East Cobb can help you be prepared for the worst. Whether it's a water loss due to a sprinkler system going off, or a fire in the company break room, SERVPRO of East Cobb has you covered with our free facility assessment call an Emergency Ready Profile (ERP). That's right, you read that correctly, SERVPRO offers a free service that will better prepare your facility for when disaster strikes!

What is an Emergency Ready Profile?

  • A no cost assessment of your facility. This means there is no need to allocate funds, giving you a great value at no cost.
  • A concise Profile Document that contains only the critical information needed in the event of an emergency. It will only take a little time to complete and will not take you away from current projects. But it will save a lot of time if ever needed.
  • A guide to help you get back into your building following a disaster. This can help minimize the amount of time your business is inactive by having an immediate plan of action.
  • Establishes your local SERVPRO Franchise Professional as your disaster mitigation and restoration provider. You have a provider that is recognized as an industry leader and close by.
  • Identification of the line of command for authorizing work to begin. This saves time so we can begin the work of mitigating the damage which can save you time and money.
  • Provides facility details such as shut-off valve locations, priority areas and priority contact information. Having a quick reference of what to do, how to do it and who to call provides solutions in advance of an emergency so that during the emergency you are "Ready for whatever happens."

SERVPRO’s ERP program is a no cost, no commitment service SERVPRO of East Cobb can provide to commercial business owners and property managers to protect their commercial property. The ERP consists of a comprehensive walk through of your facility with one of SERVPRO’s highly trained disaster mitigation specialists, where they will document important facility information that will help get you back up and running quickly in the event of a water, fire, or other type of disaster. SERVPRO’s technicians will locate and tag your facilities water and gas shut-off valves, and electrical panels so that in the event of a disaster, your employees will know where these building fixtures are located. For example, if a toilet in your facility were to begin overflowing uncontrollably, would you know where the shutoff valve is located? Our mitigation professionals will also collect information about important areas of the facility like file rooms where customer documents and employee records are stored, IT closest or networking equipment that might need to be secured during a major disaster event, and any other sensitive areas or equipment in your facility that might be subject to water, fire or any other type of damage. Another important piece of information SERVPRO will gather is your facility’s emergency contact list. By having this information readily available both your employee and SERVPRO will have a clear chain of command to reference in the event of a disaster situation. Disasters tend to bring on stress and can be a hectic situation. Being able to cut through the clutter and communicate issues or responsibilities clearly and quickly, your facility stands a much greater chance of recovering with minimal downtime and profit loss.

The information gathered by our mitigation specialist will be neatly organized into an easy to use ERP information packet that you can keep on hand at your facility in case of disaster. The information gathered will also be available in digital format via the SERVPRO ERP READY App so you can literally take this information with you anywhere you go (available for free on both apple and android devices app stores).

The purpose of the Emergency READY Profile is to minimize downtime caused by an event like a facility fire, water loss, natural disaster, and even man-made disasters. If your facility is closed for repairs and you are unable to conduct business as usual, a disaster event can really affect your bottom line. Not only does it cost money to complete repairs to your facility, but it also can cost you in the form of lost production hours and/or lost revenue. Often times the cost of lost revenue far outweighs the cost of repairs, and this is why an Emergency READY Profile is so important. An ERP will allow your business to handle a disaster event head-on and get back up and running faster!
