Hurricane Season officially arrived on June 1st and runs through November 30th. As everyone’s thoughts turn to hurricane preparedness during this time, we want you to know that your local SERVPRO is ready for “whatever happens”. We have worked extensively to develop advanced response systems, to ensure that we are always “faster to any size disaster”. Our highly trained team members are ready to move 24/7 to help when it is needed most. In the event of catastrophic situations, we have a team of over 1600 franchises that make up our Disaster Response Network. They can provide support and added resources to help us aid clients in the event of a natural disaster. At SERVPRO, we have seen it all and we know that being prepared is the first step in minimizing damage to your home or business. The first step is to develop an emergency plan for your property and have all the supplies on hand to ride out a storm and the aftermath. Also make sure you have nailed down any evacuation plans and set up a family communication plan should you happen to get separated during a storm. If you own a business, call us today to set up a consultation for your FREE Emergency Ready Profile to reduce damage and minimize down time. As we saw recently with Tropical Storm Cindy, you never know what will happen when Mother Nature decides to strike. However; the best step you can take is to prepare for the worst and pray for the best!
