What is the cost of failing to prepare for disaster?
We’ve seen widespread destruction and devastation first-hand. The commercial clients who were able to bounce back after a disaster all had one thing in common — they were prepared. Consider the risks of failing to prepare for an emergency:
- Secondary damages – Mold, smoke damage, standing water, and compromised structures exponentially increase the cost of restoration.
- Downtime – If your property is destroyed, day-to-day procedures cannot proceed as usual, taking money out of your pocket.
- Lost employees – Without proper disaster planning in place, your staff may search for work with an employer who was better prepared.
- Losing your business – FEMA reports that 40-60% of small business owners never reopen their doors following a major loss. An emergency plan keeps your dream alive during a crisis.
