Emergency Response Plans: Are you Ready?
What is an ERP?
An ERP is an Emergency Ready Profile which pertains to the layout of your commercial building. ERP's are used to map out your building for potential disasters. Once you contact us to come out for mitigation services, we can all refer to the ERP for important utility shutoff locations as well as specific concerns for your facility. An ERP will help business' save time and money. This profile ensures a stressful situation is handled as efficiently as possible as we move forward with the issues at hand.
An ERP will contain the following:
An assessment of your facility.
A Concise Profile Documentation that contains critical information in the event of an emergency.
(shut-off valve locations, priority areas and priority contact information)
Line of command in regard to the authorization to preform services initially and continuing to work on the job after the initial inspection.
With this profile, SERVPRO of Indianapolis West will have a complete layout of your building and fully prepared for any disaster or an incident strike.
Don't let our first exposure to your building be during a disaster response. If we become familiar with your property now, we can move forward in the event of a disaster with mitigation efforts to prevent further damage. Getting your business up to speed as quickly and safely as possible will be our main goal.
