ERP's - Be Prepared for Any Type of Disaster
When you are the one in charge of daily operations of a Salvation Army shelter the last thing you want, especially during bitterly cold winter temperatures, is for your facility to be unavailable to those in need of warmth and shelter. The Salvation Army of Jefferson City provides shelter at their Center of Hope, a 31-bed shelter for homeless men, women and families with children. And no matter the temperature, the Salvation Army wants to make sure they are prepared to accept anyone homeless at any time.
After a few route visits with Lt. Christopher White at the Salvation Army administrative office, we discussed the idea of preparing an EMERGENCY READY PROFILE (ERP) to help minimize business interruption in the event of a disaster at their shelter. He was quickly on board with the idea and a date was scheduled to meet and prepare the comprehensive document containing critical information about his administrative office and shelter, including emergency contact information, shut-off valve locations and priority areas.
Preparation is the key and the SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile will help ensure you and your business are “Ready for whatever happens.””
The ERP is a no-cost assessment that requires a short amount of time. Call your SERVPRO of Jefferson City, 573-635-5883, to schedule an Emergency READY Profile at your office.
