The True Costs of Being Unprepared

After a major storm, fire, flood, or other emergency, a fast response helps to minimize the impact of the disaster, as well as the costs. Having a Commercial Emergency Response Plan in place ensures that First Response is familiar with your property and its unique needs for restoration. Failing to plan can leave business owners crippled with the overwhelming stress, money, and time required to get back on your feet.  Here are the true costs of being unprepared in the event that you require commercial emergency restoration:

  • Further damage.

Restoration expenses compound with each passing second. Secondary damages such as mold growth, smoke damage, wind and water damage from a compromised roof, or structural collapse are all real possibilities.

  • Costly downtime.

To make money, your doors need to be open for business. Slow response times or delay in securing restoration services means that you extend the downtime of your commercial operation.

  • Losing employees.

Your employees trust you to look out for their best interests. If you experience a disaster that impacts your workforce, you run the risk of your employees leaving to look for other work. Being prepared is an investment in your staff.

  • Losing it all.

Running a business is already a tough job. Lacking a commercial emergency plan introduces the possibility that your business is unable to recover after a disaster. FEMA reports indicate that 40-60% of small businesses never recuperate.

Commercial Emergency Response Plan FAQ

Emergencies and disasters don’t occur daily. However, when they do hit, it is always best to be prepared. Here are the most common frequently asked questions about the Commercial Emergency Response Plan.

To properly prepare your business for an emergency, you need an emergency preparedness plan. This involves several components, including consulting with restoration experts to assess potential risks and give preparedness guidelines; training your employees to delegate responsibilities, identifying evacuation routes, implementing safety protocols, and distributing an emergency communication plan. Monitor all alerts to minimize the damage and take pro-active steps to protect the premises, such as tarping the windows, installing sandbags and flood panels, etc.

Commercial operations face the potential for a variety of emergencies, ranging from security breaches and lawsuits to hurricanes, tornados, and floods. The key is to look at each possible situation as viable and worthy of adequate prevention and mitigation planning. Partnering with First Response allows you priority access to emergency restoration services.
