What is the cost of being unprepared?
When your business has a major fire or water damage, the speed of response has a decisive impact on the ultimate costs your business will carry. So what is the cost of time in case of commercial emergency restoration?
- Further damage.
The cost of restoration multiplies each hour following the emergency due to secondary damage such as mold growth, smoke damage, water and wind trapping the building through the compromised roof or building structures;
- Costly downtime.
To have any operational money, your business needs to operate. The longer it takes to return to normal business processes, the greater the losses.
- Losing employees.
Best employees will not wait for too long before looking for employers in the area that was not damaged by a disaster or employers that were better prepared for the disaster.
- Losing it all.
If you do not have a business emergency plan in place, there are great chances your business will not recover at all. According to FEMA, 40-60% of small businesses never reopen.

Emergencies and disasters don't happen every other day, but when they strike, it's better to be prepared. Here are some of the most common frequently asked questions we receive from those who want to know more about a disaster preparedness planning.
How are you preparing for an emergency in your business?
To get prepared for an emergency, you need to develop an emergency preparedness plan; call in restoration experts to assess the risks and give disaster preparedness guidelines; give emergency plan training to your employees, so that anyone knows their responsibilities, the evacuation routes, the safety measures, and emergency communication plan. Be sure to monitor for alerts and take timely measures to minimize the damage: tarp the windows, install sandbags and flood panels, etc.
What emergencies could a business face?
Businesses face lots of emergencies ranging from security breaches and lawsuits to hurricanes rushing through the entire region. Each type of hazard is viable and requires adequate prevention and mitigation planning. Getting into a Top Priority List for emergency restoration services is just as important as installing antivirus software and fire alarm systems.
Why have an emergency plan?
In the emergency situation, it is difficult to preserve the clarity of mind and act in the best way. An emergency plan details procedures for handling emergency situations. Such a plan allows to:
- Prevent injuries and fatalities.
- Reduce damage to buildings, stock, equipment, and documents.
- Minimize the negative impact on the environment and the community.
- Speed up the return to normal operations.
What's more, disaster planning helps to discover unrecognized hazards and vulnerabilities.
What should an emergency preparedness plan include?
An emergency preparedness plan should include everything that needs to be done before, during and after the emergency. In particular, it should describe
- All possible emergencies and their predicted consequences,
- Required actions, procedures, and resources for each type of emergency.
- Detailed lists of personnel and their responsibilities in case of emergency.
- Floor plans and maps showing evacuation routes and service lines.
