Partner with SERVPRO to Develop Your Personalized Emergency READY Profile (ERP) and Prepare for a Fast Response to Flood Damage

Although storm season is a yearly certainty, merely knowing the damaging heavy rainfall and winds are possible does not limit the effect of a storm that strikes close to you. Devastating damage can still threaten closure and loss of business. No restoration company can stop a tropical storm from causing structural damage and flooding, but our forward-thinking mitigation and remediation experts can assess your property’s vulnerabilities and put together a blueprint of the most effective way our restoration crews can respond to get you back to business fast and make it "Like it never even happened."®

How Does the Emergency Ready Profile and Plan (ERP) Work?

Put yourself in control of your business’ flooding damage by taking proactive action. Invite our trained and experienced project managers to come and assess your structural layout so we can create a plan that you can use to assist against potential flooding damage in two distinct ways:

We look for ways your current operation can be reconfigured to limit the effects of flood damage:

• Storing documents off-site or in water-proof containers
• Converting records to a digital form
• Raising equipment off of the floor
• Protecting inventory by choosing safer spaces for storage in your building, containment, or periodic off-site storage

We familiarize ourselves with your layout and ways of operating, and identify the likely path of flood waters entering and the best operational path towards mitigation:

• Label utility shut-offs
• Note recesses and building cavities that could trap water
• Develop a response plan with your input

• Clarify that SERVPRO is your preferred restoration company

• Define the reconstruction costs associated with different levels of damage, so you can plan ahead of disasters and have response funds in place for quick mitigation and restoration
• Provide contact information for vendors and contractors who developed your space and systems
• Designate individuals whom you authorize to act on your behalf if you are unavailable during the crisis

Work with SERVPRO of Barrie to create a comprehensive ERP and ride out this storm season, knowing you are well-prepared for any disaster. Call (705) 733-7767 now to schedule your no-obligation assessment.
