EMERGENCY RESPONSE BECAUSE YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO BE OUT OF OPERATION, IT PAYS TO BE ON After a natural disaster or catastrophic event, you need an experienced partner in disaster recovery. BELFOR is the largest disaster management company in the world, with over 150 offices in more than 25 countries. BELFOR’s experience, size and knowledge ensures that we are able to provide effective solutions for recovery from water, fire or smoke damage. In an emergency, the response is critical The response and actions taken during the first 24 to 48 hours of a disaster are critical in determining whether or not your business fully recovers. Your recovery team has only one opportunity to get it right. Choosing BELFOR gives you access to an entire team of experienced, professional recovery experts. Your company and employees will benefit from having BELFOR by your side. Effective pre- and post-disaster planning and management have never been as important as they are today. Whatever the cause, disasters are now an established risk to every business and they must be prepared for in advance. Our response is Red Alert® Our practical knowledge of disasters has been developed into Red Alert®, an international priority response service program. With over 60 years of experience in disaster recovery and business continuity, BELFOR can help get your business quickly back into operation after an incident occurs. Red Alert®, developed by BELFOR, cannot prevent these emergencies from happening. But we can, and do, limit the financial and personal havoc they can cause. Red Alert® provides you with: • Emergency service, via a dedicated emergency phone number, 24/7 • Assistance in emergency situations – from major fires to area flooding. • Rescue and protection of your assets. • On the spot damage assessment. The Red Alert® service is structured to work with your own emergency procedures to provide total disaster management so that when disaster does strike, everyone concerned is prepared for it and is operating in unison. This allows the Red Alert® three stage action plan to be initiated with the utmost speed and effectiveness. • To make the premises safe and secure, prevent further damage and recover what is immediately salvageable. • To assess the extent of the damage. • To restore premises, equipment and the business to full working order. A program for recovery In the majority of disasters, business interruption and consequential damage are far more serious than the purely physical losses. The loss of records, the disruption or cessation of business and the erosion of staff and customer confidence can be fatal. Therefore, it is crucial to re-establish your operational capability as quickly as possible. To ensure recovery, it is vital that the right combination of specialized decontamination and technical resources are deployed as soon as possible. We will stabilize the situation and mitigate losses to property, stocks, documentation, data, machinery, equipment and electronics, keeping damage to an absolute minimum. , CREATING ORDER FROM CHAOS Response 24/7, 365 days a year All Red Alert clients receive a priority response to help you assess the situation as fast as possible.
