“Prepared, Not Scared” – MaintenX Observes National Preparedness Month

National Preparedness Month is a FEMA initiative focused on promoting best practices in disaster planning and preparation.

September is National Preparedness Month, and MaintenX is enthusiastically promoting FEMA’s initiatives in support of the month’s official motto: “Prepared, Not Scared.” National Preparedness Month was founded in 2004 to promote family and community disaster and emergency planning. September was chosen in part because it falls during the Atlantic hurricane season, although the lessons of the Month should be implemented year-round.

The first two weeks of September focus on saving early for disaster costs and making a disaster plan. For more than 40 years, MaintenX technicians have been trusted as experts in disaster planning and have helped businesses from coast to coast prepare for the worst nature can throw at them.

“The best thing a facility can do is invest serious time and thought into a disaster preparation plan,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX VP of Business Development, “so that when the situation calls for action, all that is necessary is to implement the plan, which should contain all the steps required to prep the building and staff and recover afterwards.”

One thing facility managers can do to be more resilient against disasters is to develop and follow a robust preventative maintenance plan. Preventative maintenance ensures that your equipment stays in good shape, avoiding surprise expenses and downtime and making it less likely that a natural disaster will knock out key systems.

A good preventative maintenance schedule makes your costs predictable and extends the useful life of your equipment. MaintenX can work with your company to develop a customized preventative maintenance plan that includes disaster contingencies, and will be on hand for any repairs or replacements you might need.

Whether it’s making a plan, performing preventative maintenance, or springing into action after a disaster to repair facilities and equipment, MaintenX has you covered curb to roof. From plumbing to electrical to roofing, MaintenX’s self-performing technicians have the expertise to get you “Prepared, Not Scared” during hurricane season and all year round.
