National Preparedness Month
September is National Preparedness Month. Join Anne Arundel County in preparing for emergencies and disasters of all types, and leading efforts to encourage the community to become more prepared!
SERVPRO of Glen Burnie on commercial properties that experience storm damage:
What we often notice is the property as well as the personnel do NOT have an emergency plan. In September 2020, a tornado wreaked havoc on certain parts of Anne Arundel County. And, once again, some businesses and properties were not prepared.
Disasters happen and not only devastate individuals and neighborhoods, but entire communities. We recommend you make a plan and practice it with your employees.
Here are several things you should include in your preparedness plan:
- An evacuation and shelter-in-place plans
- A plan to communicate with your employees and their families
- An emergency supply kit
- Practice your emergency plan
Be sure to sign up for alerts and warnings for Anne Arundel County, and download other necessary apps to stay informed, such as the FEMA app.
Keep SERVPRO of Glen Burnie’s contact information on your cell phone and in your plan. Our team is always here to help make it “Like it never even happened” if disaster strikes in your life.
