National Preparedness Month
When September arrives most people think about the weather cooling off and the return of football. At SERVPRO September is a big month because its officially the national preparedness month. Its a simple reminder to be prepared for any emergency or disaster.
Most people assume hurricanes are the only disaster and rarely are prepared if they don't live by the ocean. However flooding, fires, and tornadoes can happen anywhere in the world so its important to have a plan in place.
We recommend using some of these tips to make sure you and your family are prepared for any type of emergency.
- Have an emergency meeting location
- Keep emergency contacts saved in your phone
- Keep copies of important documents in multiple locations
If you own a business please reach out to your local franchise and ask them about the free emergency ready plan. We are happy to come take a look at your business and customize an emergency plan. This includes documenting main shut offs and organizing emergency contacts.
