Timely mitigation is the key to controlling damage and reducing downtime and recovery costs, minimizing academic interruption. Your students, staff and everyone who depends on your facility will appreciate the rapid response, detailed communication process and professional service. The training of your local SERVPRO® of Cerritos will help limit damage and get your school back in operation quickly.

SERVPRO’s Emergency Ready Profile is designed to be a quick and easy snapshot of your school providing you with the critical facility information needed for emergency preparation.

Preparation is a key component for making it through any size disaster, whether it’s a small water leak, a large fire or an area flood. The best time for planning for such events is not when the event happens, but well before it happens.

SERVPRO® of Cerritos can provide free valuable resources for you to share with your students and staff. Some of the items we offer include:

  • Emergency and Safety Tips
  • Kids Activity Books
  • Home Emergency Booklets
  • Family Communication Plans
  • Emergency Contact Wallet Cards

  • Coloring Pages and Word Searches
