Proactive vs. Reactive
For a business owner and homowner, a worst-case scenario involving fire or water damage can seem unthinkable until it suddenly becomes your reality. Fire and water damage can happen as a result of many things, including storm damage. In the aftermath of a storm, a quick response time from SERVPRO of Lane County can minimize property damage.
Property owners should have a quick and convenient emergency disaster plan that connects them with vendors, necessary contacts, and pertinent information for if/when a storm happens.
When building an emergency plan, there are four key areas to remember:
1. Identify your facility's greatest threats in order to assess the overall severity of the event.
2. Document all vital information and establish clear communication activities.
3. Expect the unexpected as there is no "textbook" storm.
4. Keep your information updated and make sure your insurance company has all of the necessary information.
