Get Ready With the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Plan | SERVPRO® of Bartow/Lakeland Highlands
Running a business will keep you busy—so busy if you were to calculate all of your time you would be well into what most consider “overtime.”
In a business market that is constantly changing and shifting, you have payroll to manage, competition in your marketplace to handle and staff to care for, all while creating a presence on social media. Finding the balance of it all can feel like walking on a tightrope.
In a business market haunted by the memory of pandemic closures and uncertainties of what lies ahead, it has become more important than ever to have a solid emergency plan in place for your business. You need to know with certainty what to do and when following any type of emergency.
But three-quarters of small businesses do not have a plan in place in the event of a natural disaster or other business disruption—an alarming fact that SERVPRO of Bartow/Lakeland Highlands hopes to change with our Emergency Ready Plan.
One business disruption can derail a business permanently. FEMA found that 40% of small businesses affected by a natural disaster never reopen, while another quarter of those businesses that do reopen close within a year. In our constantly changing Florida weather, it is more important than ever to have a plan that minimizes your time away from your business after a natural disaster.
SERVPRO of Bartow/Lakeland Highlands will work with you to create a plan that is ready as soon as you say “go.” You will know the chain of command, where your alternate work locations are, what alternate vendors are available to you and so much more. We even cover data backup and recovery so you spend as little downtime as possible.
Natural disasters and emergencies are not something we want to think about. But when they happen, we don’t want to find ourselves adding to the alarming statistics by going off the rails.
Small business is the heart of our Florida community. Let us secure your business in the event of a disaster. Reach out to start your Emergency Ready Plan today.
When your business is ready to prioritize planning and safety to prevent extended downtime, contact SERVPRO to get the Emergency Ready Plan underway from the folks who know all there is to know about disaster and recovery.
