September is National Preparedness Month & 9/11 Day of Remembrance
National Preparedness month is recognized each September and helps provide an opportunity to remind us that we all must prepare ourselves and our families now and throughout the year.
SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/Outer Banks in conjunction with FEMA will focus this month on planning, with the NPM theme: Disasters Happen, Prepare Now. Learn How. During the month of September, we will post weekly blogs on topics surrounding How to Make and Practice Your Plan; Learn Life Saving Skills, Check Your Coverage, and Saving For an Emergency.
It is important to take time to learn lifesaving skills such as CPR and first aid, to check your insurance policies and coverage for hazards you may face such as floods and hurricanes. You need to consider the costs from those hazards and that you may need to save for an emergency. Also, knowing how to shut off water and gas is an important safety step to know in advance.
SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/Outer Banks has a free Emergency Ready Plan mobile app and service to help businesses be prepared for an emergency. The all in one place, at your fingertips mobile app will help provide the first responders with the immediate information they need to help minimize the damage and to quickly get you back in business. As a free service to you, our SERVPRO Representative will meet with you and your key personnel, to plug in your business facility details that will help you and your employees to be ready for whatever happens. Call us to learn more about our ERP Business Plan.
