2017 Resolution... Plan Ahead, Be Ready, Be Prepared

12/30/2016 (Permalink)

Do you know where the water shut off is to your business? The ERP can identify those areas and help you be prepared for any size disaster.

Our Portland office has helped over 100 businesses in the Greater Portland area over the last two years developing the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile (ERP). The ERP has been created so their business is ready for whatever happens. Emergencies happen and being prepared for the unfortunate can help minimize business interruption and get you back in business. 

The Emergency Ready Profile is a comprehensive document that contains critical information including who to call, important shut off valve locations and priority areas of your business. Every second counts when an emergency strikes and we want you to be prepared. We offer this service free to businesses to help ensure their staff is educated should a water or fire damage occur. The ERP can be accessed on your smartphone or hard copies can be provided to ensure your staff has the tools needed to be proactive. 

We believe preparation is the key to making it through any size disaster, from a small water leak, large fire or an area that is known for flooding. 

Resolve to be ready in 2017 and contact our office at 207-772-5032 to help us get your office ready and prepared.

Information and direction contained in the Emergency Ready Profile is key to timely mitigation.

50% of businesses never reopen after a catastrophic loss. As a business owner are you and your staff prepared and ready for whatever happens?  Disaster can strike at any time and knowing what to do and who to call is key to potentially minimizing damage to your property. Our Emergency Ready Profile is a great resource to have in place to educate staff on shut off locations and who to call during an emergency. Preparing your staff is key to timely mitigation. Does your staff know where the water shut off is in your building should a pipe burst occur? Does your staff know where to shut the electrical main off should an emergency occur in the building?  

The Emergency Ready Plan can be used on your smartphone or desktop. Hard copies can also be provided to help assist staff.

Meet our SERVPRO Contractor

When you have been the victim of property damage, whether it is fire damage, water damage or even bio-hazard cleaning, trying to coordinate all the service providers can seem like a daunting task. We understand how stressful these situations can be here at SERVPRO of Portland and are here to help! A few months ago we hired a contractor who has been able to provide our customers with structural repairs following the demo needed to make the structure safe again. Jim is a reliable and honest contractor who owned and operated his construction company for 16 years before joining our team.  Adding Jim Francoeur to our SERVPRO Team has allowed us to provide our customers with a contractor, eliminating one of the service providers they would have to coordinate with, as well as adding a service we had not previously offered. We are excited for the opportunity to make a stressful situation go as smoothly as possible for all of our customers and get you back to "Like It Never Even Happened!"
