Do You Have a Plan in Place for Your Business? | SERVPRO® of East Lansing/Haslett
When you manage a business, you not only have full-time job duties, but you also have a never-ending to-do list. There’s no doubt you have a lot on your plate, whether it’s staffing or payroll, inventory or marketing.
But if you aren’t prepared for disasters, all of your hard work could be in jeopardy. You’ve put in a lot of effort to get to where you are now. Don’t you want to do everything you can to ensure that your company can weather any storm?
Because businesses are so busy, it is easy to let some things slip the mind. One of those things oftentimes is disaster preparedness. When a fire, hurricane or any type of disaster hits a business, it’s often difficult or impossible to get it back up and running.
According to FEMA, 40% of small businesses close permanently following a disaster, and a significant portion of those that do reopen close again in less than a year.
When devastation strikes your company, having a strategy in place for what you’ll do ahead of time might be the difference between survival and failure. Three-quarters of small businesses in the United States don’t have a disaster plan in place. Businesses that are prepared for a disaster are the ones who come out on the other side.
SERVPRO of East Lansing/Haslett assists companies in our area in preparing for disasters by developing a Emergency Ready Plan that is tailored to a company’s needs, location and industry. Your business will be able to minimize downtime if you have a strategy in place since you’ll know what to do if disaster hits.
Natural disasters are already obstacles in and of themselves. Make every effort to ensure that you are prepared to bounce back if one strikes. We’re here to assist you with 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.
