Prepare for Winter with the Ready App
While we rush around preparing for the holidays, winter is creeping up on us. Pretty soon we will be hunkered down hoping to avoid the worst this season can throw at us.
Here at SERVPRO of Lexington-Bedford, we would like to help you be prepared to survive the weather and any storms that head our way. So we encourage our friends and family to download the Ready Plan App. This mobile app (App Store or Google Play) guides users through a simple process to identify important building systems and emergency contacts.
Once your Ready Plan is complete, you can quickly share it with others who need the information like house sitters or babysitters.
Many water damages can be contained until the plumber arrives by simply turning off the water to your home. The Ready Plan App provides space to take a photo of the water main shutoff and describe where it can be found.
Other utilities are also included so you can quickly find the electric panels and gas shutoff.
Key Contact Info
When recording your utility shutoffs, you can include the emergency phone numbers, your account numbers, and anything else you might need to know when calling these companies.
You can gather contact information for your trusted restoration professionals in one place where you can find them quickly. You will not have to dig around in a drawer to find your plumber’s business card, and you can note referrals from your friends before disaster strikes.
The Ready Plan App lets you store non-emergency phone numbers to local emergency services. While calling 911 is always the best first step in an emergency, there may be times you want to speak with your police or fire department without tying up the emergency lines.
