The launch of FirstOnSite’s Priority Response Emergency Plan (PREP) was recently highlighted on Insurance-Canada.ca – Canada’s Source for Insurance Information, Products, and Services.

As Canada’s largest independent disaster restoration company, FirstOnSite and its industry-first PREP Program aim to prepare commercial companies for natural disasters and other emergencies.

Barry J. Ross, Managind Director of FirstOnSite’s Commercial-National Accounts Division argues that

Responding quickly when a disaster strikes and managing a situation is critical.”

 

In fact, statistics compiled by the Canadian Centre for Emergency Preparedness demonstrate that up to 86% of small and medium-sized businesses fail within 3 years of a major incident if there is no tested emergency management plan in place.

FirstOnSite’s Commercial Division finds this lack of preparedness also holds true for many large corporations.
