Emergency Ready Profile FAQ
The marketing team at SERVPRO® of Southwest Lubbock has been busy helping local businesses prepare for their next challenge by creating an Emergency Ready Profile® (ERP). Here are the most frequent questions we encounter when introducing the ERP to property managers and business owners.
What Is an ERP?
An Emergency Ready Profile® compiled by a SERVPRO® franchise professional is a document that organizes critical emergency information so that a property owner or manager can respond quickly and efficiently to a disaster. While many emergency plans focus on getting people out of a building safely, our plan aims to get everyone back in the building again as soon as possible.
What Will an ERP Cost?
There is no charge for an ERP. Homeowners are encouraged to download the SERVPRO® Ready Plan App to create their own personal Emergency Ready Profile® for their home. Commercial property owners and business managers can contact their local SERVPRO® franchise to have a professional come out and create the profile for them.
What Is in It for You?
With an ERP, you will be able to reduce business interruption and quickly mitigate a loss following an adverse event, saving both time and money. Important information like where to find your water, gas, electric and sprinkler shutoffs and key contacts for beginning restoration will be right at your fingertips in the SERVPRO® Ready Plan App, and you will be able to share this information quickly and easily with anyone who needs it.
What Is in It for SERVPRO®?
You may be wondering what’s in it for us if there is no charge for an ERP. That is a fair question. First, we hope that helping you prepare before you need our services makes it more likely you will think of us when disaster strikes. Second, we know that having this information organized ahead of time will allow us to better serve you should you choose to call us following an adverse event. However, even if you never use our services, we will still have the satisfaction of helping our community be better equipped to survive a disaster.
Who Has Access to Your Information?
Once we compile a commercial ERP, we deliver the following to the business owner or any approved personal at your company:
- A printed document ERP.
- A username and password for each user the mobile Ready Plan app version of your ERP, so you can immediately share it with all necessary parties at your discretion.
Here at SERVPRO® of Southwest Lubbock the document is stored locally on our server, and the mobile version is stored in the SERVPRO® corporate Ready Plan app, in case you need us to respond to an emergency at your site.
