Biohazard Pro Services Disaster Preparedness Plan
Flooding and water damage are among the most common emergencies that strikes the homes and business of Minnesota. Your property can be flooded or damaged as a result of storms, heavy rains and roof leakages, however faulty home appliances, burst or leaking pipes can also be to blame.
Biohazard Pro Services has become the community’s most trusted Water Damage Restoration company since the family-run business was founded in 2006 by Dan Schmitt. As well as providing rapid response disaster relief services we also offer weekly educational public events.
Our unique events are highly informative and ran in a casual fashion, which means you’ll have the ability to ask questions and discuss the processes and phases of emergency management with our expert technicians who are on hand.
Having an effective emergency management preparedness plan will enable you to respond quickly and effectively to reduce and mitigate the water damage that a catastrophic flooding event can cause to your property.
The Emergency Management Strategy that you can depend on.
The Emergency Management Strategy our company uses has four major parts; prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery.
Prevention and Mitigation. In the first part of our strategy, we focus on the ways that we can avoid personal injury and also the methods by which we could prevent a disaster from occurring in the first location. Pipes and other fittings should be monitored if they’re old, and replaced where possible. Mitigation is the part of the strategy where we reduce the damage caused.
Preparedness covers how we could get ready for a possible emergency by having a great plan in place. This entails training, in first aid, for example, ensuring that we have the proper equipment, such as fire extinguishers, and assigning functions so that when a crisis strikes, everybody knows what they should do.
Response. How we react to an emergency will make all the difference to the outcome. We will need to act calmly while taking the right measures. Rehearsing these beforehand will help us to respond more efficiently and with a cooler head. The response also involves calling for help, from the Fire Fighters or Ambulance Services, for example, to include the emergency as soon as possible.
Recovery. In this phase, we’re focused on restoring the property to its pre-damaged condition, making certain that water and electricity supplies are reinstated and that the people affected can return to their lives as soon as it’s safe to do so.
Phases in Emergencies
There are usually five stages in an emergency, and each one plays an important role.
- Discovery and Notification: After a discovered event has the danger of turning into a disaster, the information should be instantly relayed to security officials.
- Evaluate and Accident Control Initiation: Using the supplied advice the security officials will rapidly assess the severity of the threat and commence the best response.
- Containment and Counter Measures: The first action taken is to control the water damage and eliminate the threat of further problems. Response teams also take measured steps to limit the damage to property, persons, and the environment.
- Cleanup and Disposal: Water damage cleanup starts when the threat has passed. This phase also covers proper waste disposal.
- Documentation: Every stage of the water damage disaster is completely documented from discovery and response to containment and clean-up. Photographs, along with documentation may be needed for financial help or even before the cleanup and disposal can start.

Correct classification of a crisis event allows you to work effectively with local emergency services and properly plan your response.
Level 1 Emergency – this event is only going to impact the immediate area surrounding the epicenter. This could include, for example, a burst mains pipe that’s flooding the ground floor of your premises.
Level 2 Emergency – this is a larger scale disaster, and might impact the security of people and buildings within an area of up to 500 m2. An event of this scale could include a chemical spill or major gas flow.
Level 3 Emergency – this is a very serious incident that can impact people and property over 500 meters away. This could be a major wildfire, a large flood or a broad spread terrorist attack. This may require that individuals in neighboring towns are evacuated.
