Large-scale catastrophic events like 9/11 and Hurricane Harvey have brought even greater attention to the need for proactive disaster planning. Even small-scale events can threaten a school’s continuity of operations and capability to continue essential functions, particularly if they don’t have an effective disaster plan in place. The U.S. Department of Education’s disaster planning model includes three phases: “readiness, response and recovery.” You can trust BMS CAT to be your partner in even the toughest times, whether they are the result of a natural disaster or other catastrophic event.
Education Disaster Recovery Services
Fire and Water Damage Recovery
Fire and water damage can affect critical operations, such as daily instruction and administrative activities. BMS CAT provides restoration and recovery services for both the structure and the contents. Our comprehensive fire damage mitigation process typically involves cleaning, disinfecting and deodorizing the carpets, walls, ceilings, cabinetry and other surfaces. After a water intrusion, moisture control services are essential to stabilize your campus and prevent further damage. BMS CAT offers high volume dehumidification units, generators, and many additional services that will accelerate the recovery process.
We understand that schedule interruption equals lost learning opportunities and cancelled classes cause many administrative difficulties. BMS CAT’s 24-Hour Emergency Response ensures that we can begin your recovery immediately. We will assess the situation, create a scope of work, and expeditiously implement the agreed upon plan. While each project is unique in nature, you can rely on our experience and expertise in offering sound recovery solutions to reduce schedule interruption and to mitigate damages.
Document & Records Recovery
Fire or water intrusion often causes damage to active and archive record storage facilities, along with technological infrastructure. Educators and administrators depend on data accessibility for student records, reporting, and financial administration, as well as for actual class instruction. The window for recovery is very small for records; time is of the essence for optimal recovery. Our technicians are specifically trained in the handling of records to ensure and protect organization and student privacy while optimizing successful data recovery through our sixth-generation freeze drying process.
Safety & Security
We know the daily security of your students is a major concern, and we make security a priority. The BMS CAT hiring process allows us to provide pre-screened work crews with restoration expertise. We are committed to maintaining the health and safety of your students as we work on your facility’s recovery.
Bacterial and Viral Infection
BMS CAT works to stay abreast of all governmental, scientific and technological changes that could affect the remediation of facilities exposed to various infections. Learning institutions such as schools and universities have a heightened responsibility to safeguard the health of their attendees. BMS CAT has extensive experience with microbial/viral issues. You can count on us to provide a clean and safe environment for your students.
