For a moment, imagine if a disaster happened to your home in Walker or the Grand Rapids area: your hot water heater has cracked and flooded your basement, or a candle was knocked over and started a minor fire. After the water has been drained or fire has been put out and the smoke is cleared, what do you do next? It’s easy to hope that nothing happens to your home (and we would hope it never does). However, you must have a plan in place to have the best chances at quick, affordable, and effective recovery.

Are You


If you think about the above scenario, you may be assuming it will never happen to you. Your family isn’t prone to disaster, and if something would happen, the insurance would cover it, right? However, do you know for sure that you’re covered? Do you have enough coverage?

Isn’t it better to know you are prepared than hope that you are?

To know you are prepared, you need a plan.


What Is A

Disaster Response Plan?

A Disaster Response Plan (DRP) is a plan that you put in place before disaster strikes that takes into consideration:

What to do when disaster strikes for the fastest, most affordable recovery


Who to call to your aid when you need restoration services

How your insurance will cover the costs of lost items and damages

To put it simply, a DRP is a plan that you develop beforehand to allow for the best outcome when disaster strikes.

The longer a home is allowed to sit post-disaster, the greater the amount of damage.

This is why moving as quickly as possible to start the restoration process is essential.

A DRP allows you to move as quickly as possible!
