Disaster Preparedness Plan
Floods can happen at any time and the resulting water damage could be catastrophic. Water damage from flooding can be the result of heavy rain that forces creeks and rivers from their banks. Tidal surges from storms, blockage from ice flows, and dam failures can also cause devastating and dangerous flooding.
Having a successful emergency management preparedness plan can help you to respond quickly and efficiently to reduce and mitigate the water damage that a catastrophic flood event can cause to your house.

Prevention. This is primarily about reducing and mitigating potential risks, having great security protocols in place for your business, and ensuring that your staff is appropriately trained in the appropriate health and safety procedures.
Preparedness. When a disaster strikes, such as a flooding event, then the first thing we need to do is to fall back on our disaster management plans, in this way we can be sure we are taking the proper actions. This includes having the right safety equipment at your organization, effective preparation, in-house staff training so that if a disaster strikes you can respond in the best way possible.
Response. Having a fantastic preparedness plan in place will allow you to effectively respond to the emergency, but response also requires excellent communication, within your own team as well as with emergency services and other governmental authorities. Your response should include evacuating employees, working with the fire services in addition to your neighborhood disaster relief partners.
Recovery. To have a successful recovery a fantastic emergency management plan must first be set up, but after the event, you will have to focus on restoring your property to its pre-disaster condition so that you can get your business fully operational as soon as it’s safe to do so. Efforts will concentrate on removing all debris from the property, repairing and restoring the house, re-employment of staff and coordinating with emergency assistance experts, such as Service Restoration, who have the experience and qualifications to handle the entire restoration process.

Level 2 Emergency – this is a larger scale disaster, and may impact the safety of people and buildings within an area of around 500 m2. An event of this scale may include a chemical spill or major gas flow.
Level 3 Emergency – this is a very serious incident that could impact people and property more than 500 meters away. This could be a significant wildfire, a large flood or a widespread terrorist attack. This may require that individuals in neighboring towns are evacuated.
