American Red Cross Logo Community is important to SERVPRO of Toledo East.

Often, when people think of disasters and disaster relief the first thing that comes to mind is the American Red Cross.

SERVPRO is and has been a national sponsor of the American Red Cross and their Ready Rating Program since March of 2013. The ready rating program is free and is web-based. It is designed to help businesses, organizations, and schools become better prepared in case of an emergency

In January 2016, SERVPRO renewed its commitment to the American Red Cross. The strategy is now focusing more on their Home Fire Preparedness Campaign by supporting Disaster Responders. 

The goal of this campaign is to reduce home fire deaths and injuries across the country. Our support of Disaster Responders enables them to assist affected families quickly by providing trained volunteers, supplies, emergency response vehicles, and resources to transform community sites into shelters.

On the local level, SERVPRO of Toledo East is always looking for ways to support the American Red Cross of Northwest Ohio. We make it our mission to ensure that our local families and community is prepared for disasters...especially home fires. Our goal is to build awareness and help them learn about what steps families can take to be prepared in their own homes.

Flash flood warning sign Do you know who you would call in a flood emergency? Contact SERVPRO today to see how we can help you be ready for disaster!

Water damage may affect your Toledo commercial property at any time and without notice. The effects of water damage can be devastating. When the initial shock wears off the property owner is left with having to clean up the water damage and reopen their business as soon as possible.

Would you know what to do or how to handle a disaster situation at your commercial property?  What is your plan? Where would you start? Who would you call?

Did you know a little preparation for a water damage emergency and a plan of action in the event it ever happens can significantly reduce property damage and will help to get you back to business as soon as possible?

Large-scale losses can be prevented by following a few simple guidelines. Know where your emergency shut offs are located and have a contingency plan in place in case you are not available. Create an emergency plan with directions for what to do in an emergency as well as a list of phone numbers of approved companies to call in an emergency. Make sure someone you can trust has the authorization to make decisions if you are unavailable.

It is a good idea to contact a water restoration company such a SERVPRO of Toledo East. Not only do we have the knowledge and the resources to handle any size disaster, but we also have the capability to help you put together an “Emergency Ready Plan” Before disaster strikes. This “ERP” is not meant to replace any emergency plan that you may already have in place, but it will help you to compile all your emergency contact information and show you how to get your business on the road to recovery. Most Plans focus on how to get you out of a commercial property in case of a disaster, but with the SERVPRO “ERP” we focus on how to get back in.
