What is an Emergency Ready Profile? (ERP)

This photo is a gas shut off located outside a business. We did an ERP for this business and filed vital information needed to respond to a disaster.

Did you know that approximately 50% of businesses that experience a disaster will not recover from that event? An Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) is a no cost assessment that SERVPRO offers to businesses in our area to prevent and minimize business interruption. Being prepared for a disaster event can make the difference of keeping your business in operation! So what exactly do we do? SERVPRO professionals will come into your business and create a brief compilation of important information that would be needed in the event of an emergency. That would include photos of the water and gas shut off valves, utility box, and heating/cooling units. This aids in having a structured guide and reference of where those are located within the facility and instructions of what to do. The ERP also organizes vital contact information if ever needed. The information is then saved to the business digitally and a hard copy to keep on hand. Being prepared for a disaster is essential for recovering from a disaster.

Let SERVPRO help you get a plan of action today!
