Be Prepared for a Commercial Loss in Your Riverside Workplace

8/26/2020 (Permalink)

If you have water or fire damage in your property right now, call us at 951-351-8033 RIGHT NOW. Don’t wait to mitigate - the longer damage sits unattended, the more likely it will develop secondary damage.

If you or someone you know works in a large commercial building, you may benefit from preparing a workplace emergency preparedness kit! SERVPRO of West Riverside City is passionate about preparedness, and as we operate out of a large commercial space, we know how beneficial a kit could be in the event of an emergency.

As you’re building a kit, whether it’s generally applicable and stored in a shared office space, or specific to you and kept at your desk - it’s important to choose the right storage material and to keep your kit updated. Using airtight, water-proof bags and containers to store a kit could keep your supplies in working condition. Additionally, consider transportable containers, such as a backpack.

Whether general or specific, consider the following items to include in your kit:

  • A large flashlight and extra batteries.
  • A first aid kit.
  • Surgical masks or dust masks.
  • Water purification tablets.
  • Prepackaged foods. Emergency survival food ration bars are ideal for storage and consumption.
  • Mylar emergency blankets.
  • Bottled water - plan for one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for both drinking and sanitation.
  • An emergency whistle attached to a lanyard.
  • Maps of your local area.
  • Duct tape.
  • Work gloves.
  • Hand warmers.
  • Hand sanitizer and moist towelettes.
  • Plastic garbage bags.
  • Non-prescription medications such as pain relievers.
  • Contact lens solution.
  • Matches.
  • It’s important to pack supplies for three to seven days. If your commercial workplace ever experiences a large loss, or a disaster, while you are at work, know that making a kit like this could help keep you and your coworkers safe. 

    If your property experiences a Large Loss in the future, you can always count on SERVPRO of West Riverside City to assist in restoring your property. We roll in after disaster ready to dry, clean, and restore – but there is always a few things that need to be handled before we can start our work. This would include emergency response from your utility companies or plumber, or even emergency services from the Fire Department.

    Being time sensitive after a Large Loss is crucial. Even if we can’t start restoration work immediately, make sure to call SERVPRO as soon as possible. Doing this will ensure that our project manager is able to communicate with you throughout the process of the emergency response, and is prepared to respond to your property for mitigation and restoration as soon as we are able. Don’t wait to call – if you know your property needs mitigation or restoration work.

    Safety comes first, but when it’s time to restore - call SERVPRO of West Riverside City at 951-351-8033.
