SERVPRO of Salem/Plaistow can help you plan!
Worrying about the cleanup and restoration can be stressful, and many home and business owners are left with a feeling of helplessness and uncertainty. SERVPRO's Franchise Professionals know restoring peace of mind is just as important as restoring property.
SERVPRO® of Salem/Plaistow wants to be there in your time of need, helping you and your customers piece their lives back together.
Our goal is simple:
In an emergency situation, like a building fire, every second counts. How quickly you respond could depend on how prepared you are before the emergency. Emergency planning and training directly influence the outcome of an emergency situation. Facilities with well-prepared employees and well-developed plans are likely to incur less structural damage and fewer or less severe employee injuries.
When preparing a fire evacuation plan, it is important to designate multiple evacuation routes and exits. This ensures more than one way to exit the building, should an exit be blocked by fire. When choosing emergency exits, consider the following recommendations.
- Exits should be clearly marked and well
- Exit routes should be wide enough to accommodate the number/volume of evacuating person
- Exit routes should remain unobstructed and clear of debris at all times.
If you prepare drawings that show evacuation routes and exits, post them prominently for all employees to see. Once an escape plan is created, it should be practiced to help familiarize staff with emergency exit routes. It is important to talk to your local fire department, as local codes may require more frequent drills for various facilities.
