What to Keep in Your Office Emergency Kit

3/2/2020 (Permalink)

Disaster Preparedness Checklist SERVPRO of Piscataway can help your business get up-and-running again after a disaster, "Like it never even happened."

Business owners carry a lot of responsibility and liability, especially when it comes to making sure your building and your staff are ready for an emergency scenario.

Preparing for the effects that a disaster can have on your business and how to quickly continue operations is extremely helpful,but it is also wise to plan for in-the-moment support for you, your staff and anyone else who may become trapped in an emergency scenario.

Do You Need an Emergency Kit for Your Business?

The short answer is yes. There are many situations that could cause you and your staff to rely on an emergency kit for supplies.

For example, if there is flooding outside the building and emergency personnel is delayed- or if there is severe weather outside and officials have advised everyone to stay put.

Having the necessary supplies to deal with these types of scenarios will help keep you and your staff much safer and more comfortable until evacuation is possible and advised. It is recommended to prepare for at least three days' worth of supplies, and as many as seven depending on the size of tour business and your unique risk profile.

Supplies to Keep in Your Office's Emergency Supply Kit

Having the right supplies n your office emergency kit is about both comfort and safety. Making sure everyone has enough food and water in the beginning can turn into a safety concern depending on how long the situation continues.

Here are some of the most-recommended supplies to keep in your business emergency supply kit.

  • Flashlights and headlamps with extra batteries
  • General first aid kit, including medical supplies an over-the-counter medications
  • Surgical or dust masks, in case of debris and pollution
  • Extra water (and/or purification tables) and shelf-stable food plus utensils
  • A battery operated or manually powered emergency radio
  • Hand sanitizer and power towels
  • Emergency blankets and sleeping bags for each person
  • Flares and glow sticks
  • Duct tape and basic tools, as well as work gloves and latex gloves

If your business has been impacted by a disaster, we can help you recover with commercial restoration.  Give SERVPRO of Piscataway a call at (732) 752-4445.

As leaders in the restoration industry, we understand the importance of a comprehensive restoration plan to help you recover in the aftermath of fire, water or storm damage. In order to ensure we can be helpful for a variety of damages, we carry several certifications from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

The IICRC sets the industry standards for restoration technicians and is committed to making sure everyone who works in the restoration field is prepared and qualified to handle every type of damage that comes their way.

AMRT—Applied Microbial Remediation Technician

Designed to cover mold and sewage remediation techniques, the Applied Microbial Remediation Technician certification allows us to help with a variety of mold and moisture needs. Both mold and sewage-related floods need extra considerations due to the cleaning involved in proper restoration; the course is designed to teach both proper restoration techniques in this precarious scenario as well as how our technicians can protect themselves and other areas of your home or business from contamination.

 

ASD—Applied Structural Drying Technician

When it comes to water damage, drying and treating it as quickly as possible is of the utmost importance. That is why we undergo certification as Applied Structural Drying Technicians. This course has a combined structure of both classroom work and hands-on simulations that allow our technicians to learn not only how to clean up water damage effectively, but how to do it rapidly, as well.

 

FSRT—Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration Technician

A house or business fire is devastating enough, but if there are lingering smoke odors, they can be dangerous. That is why our technicians undergo training for Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration—this course is designed not only to teach them about how to handle the direct damage from flames in the wake of a fire, but also how to rid the home of smoke odors and make sure it is safe for families to inhabit once again.

That is why we keep our emergency line on 24/7, so you can report damage and get a quick response at any hour.

2. Homeowners can gain peace of mind. Obtaining damages to your home is one of the most difficult events homeowners can face in their life.

Because our technicians are trained to the highest standards in the restoration industry, they'll know exactly what to do when they arrive on the scene. This means that the moment they get there, they can take action and begin helping you with every aspect of restoration, instead of only arriving after you have already begun the process on your own.

How to Protect Your Home Against Water Damage

Backup computer It is important to backup your computer in case of water damage.

When preparing for water damage, creating an emergency and evacuation plan is a smart first step, but what about the things you are leaving behind? Protecting your home and its contents in a disaster scenario is the main concern, and thankfully, there are ways to achieve that. 

By planning ahead and preparing your belonging, as well as learning how to mitigate water damage that starts inside of the home, you can keep your structure and its contents far safer in the event of a water damage scenario.

Ways to Lessen the Damage that Water Can Cause

Create a Backup of Digital and Physical Files

If a flood or other serious type of water damage happens to your home, having the proper documents to help you restore will make the recovery process go much more smoothly. For this reason, it is wise to create backups of all your paperwork in order to have them readily accessible. Make copies of any physical documents and store them in a secure, off-site location. For digital files, make use of a backup system where you can recover files even if your main computer becomes damaged by moisture.

Elevate Valuables, Electronics, and Appliances

While it is impossible to know how high water will rise in a water damage situation, taking the time to elevate household objects is a good way to cover your bases. Appliances can be elevated on cinder blocks to avoid having their bases soaked in water. For electronics and valuables, placing them on the highest shelf or another elevated location might be enough to keep them out of harm's way entirely when the water rushes in.

Know Where Your Home's Water Shutoff is Located

If you are dealing with water damage from a burst pipe or other household leak, being able to shut off your water quickly can do wonders in mitigating the damage. Making sure you and everyone in the household are aware of whee the water shutoff is located is a simple way to ensure you can always cut off the water quickly if need be.

Small Business Recovery Tips for After a Disaster

If your small business has been impacted by a natural disaster, it can be a time fraught with uncertainty. Between recovery, ensuring the safety of your employees and restoring your building to continue operations, there are many things to consider—and with small businesses being impacted more severely than large businesses in the wake of a natural disaster, recovering can begin to feel like a daunting task.

As leaders in commercial restoration, we have helped many business owners reopen following a natural disaster and are here to be a resource for you. Below we have compiled our top tips for recovery after your business has been hit by a natural disaster, so you can get back in business faster.

Assess and Document the Damages

It is important to never re-enter a building until emergency personnel have declared it to be safe, but once that happens, taking stock of the damages and documenting them is vital to the restoration process. By having documentation of the damage, you can provide your insurance company with more information to go toward your claim in order to provide proof of the issues you are facing. Additionally, this is a good time to check in with key employees, vendors and clients to determine they are safe and evaluate any interruption in their own workflow.

Explore Recovery Options

Knowing where to turn to for assistance during the recovery process will help you receive aid and get your business reopened much more quickly. The U.S. Small Business Administration offers low-interest disaster loans and other resources for business owners to learn more about disaster preparedness and recovery processes.

Contact a Commercial Restoration Company

Working with the right company to handle your restoration is one of the best things you can do for the longevity of your business. Be sure to watch out for post-disaster restoration scams that often pop up to prey on vulnerable victims, and instead choose a company with a proven record for quality work and a strong local presence. Look for a company with a 24⁄7 emergency line so you can report your damage at any hour, and be sure they have highly trained technicians who have experience in commercial restoration.

If your business has been impacted by a disaster, you can call us 247 to report the damage and have our highly trained technicians respond quickly.
