SERVPRO - Active Shooter Commercial Crime Scene Clean Up - Prepare Your Emergency Plan Before It Happens

Active Shooter incidents at highschools and businesses, unfortunately, are becoming commonplace. 

Commercial buildings, churches and schools, dealing with the tragic human toll, must maintain business continuity.  Reopening doors, rebuilding locations and restoring property loss include, as hard as it may be to discuss, the crime scene clean up and sanitizing of interior and exterior structures - floors, walls and ceiling.

Once law enforcement has completed crime scene operations the physical location is handed back to the business organization. Employees return to the workplace environment potentially reliving traumatic events.  A business needs to bring in a certified disaster restoration and crime scene clean up company such as SERVPRO of North Shasta, Trinity & Greater Tehama Counties, instead of using internal custodial or janitorial staff who may have witnessed the aftermath they would be handling in their commercial facility. 

Redding, California’s Fire Chief Gerry Gray recently provided information to Shasta County business owners and residents discussing police, fire and public safety departments response and preparations.  You can read his message here.  >>   Active Shooter Response    SERVPRO encourages local commercial and educational facilities, as part of an active shooter emergency response plan, to coordinate with a highly rated local disaster restoration provider to better-coordinate an effective and efficient “back to business” post-shooting game plan.  Additionally,  free local Active Shooter training in Redding and Shasta County is available.

FEMA's How to Prepare for an Active Shooter Incident is an excellent resource.  Also look at Ready.gov's Active Shooter Checklist.

We recognize the tragic consequences of an active shooter event in a crowded school or workplace. Biohazard cleaning is only one component of the process.  Fire and water damage to commercial spaces, merchandise and carpets speaks to the need for business owners to pre-plan active shooter disaster clean up response.  Especially important for businesses is to contact us for your free Emergency Readiness Plan; an onsite and detailed layout of your facility including key notes and photos of utility shut-offs and emergency contacts.
