September is National Preparedness Month

National preparedness month encourages and reminds us to be prepared for disasters or emergencies in our homes, businesses, and communities. Every week of September is a different theme to help you get and be prepared. Disasters don’t wait, make your plan today.

Week 1 September 1-4 Make a Plan: Communicate with your family, friends, and co-workers before, during, and after a disaster. Make sure your plans are up to date. SERVPRO of the Quad Cities can help. We have an Emergency Ready Profile for businesses and your plan should be updated every year.

Week 2 September 5-11 Build a Kit: Now that you have talked about what you need to do in case of a disaster/emergency; now it’s time to build the kit. Gather supplies for a few days for everyone living in your home. Don’t forget about your pets and always update your kit every year.

Week 3 September 12-18 Prepare for Disasters: To limit the impact of a disaster or emergency, know the risk of the disaster. Learn how to make your home stronger and safer when dealing with storms and common hazards. Also, check with your homeowner’s insurance to see what it covers and doesn’t. You might be surprised what is covered and not. Be prepared; not scared

Week 4 September 19-24 Teach Youth About Preparedness: It helps to talk with your children about the risk and possible disasters/emergencies. It helps prepare them so they aren’t as scared and they know what to do if they are separated from you. Educate them and yourselves on what can occur. Don’t wait, communicate!

When disaster strikes, you can be ruined or you can be READY!!! SERVPRO of the Quad Cities is committed to providing fire, water cleanup, and restoration services, 24/7. We will help reduce business and home life interruptions and recovery costs. "Like it never even happened."

Always remember to think ahead have a plan, be prepared for any emergency.
