Here are some tips from the National Fire Prevention Association for developing a plan: 

  • Work with a trusted neighbor close by who know your children and can evacuate them
  • Set up a schedule with other working parents in the neighborhood so that someone is always at home and can make sure the children are safe
  • Pack a “Go Bag” with treasured items, water, food, prescriptions they can grab and leave with quickly
  • Practice together with their pets if time allows to crate them for removal
  • Have a designated contact, like an out-of-town family member programmed into their cell phone so you can find each other quickly

Sewage Spills Are Dangerous

SERVPRO of Gresham and SERVPRO of Oregon City / Sandy technicians are on-call 24-hours a day in Sandy and have required safety gear and equipment to handle any form of sewage spill hyperlink.

Sewer system water, or “Category 3 black water” carries dangerous viruses and bacteria, so it is imperative for the health and safety of your employees and customers to mitigate the damage as quickly as possible. 

This water is highly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Blackwater can come from flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with fecal matter, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth. Blackwater may also contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes.

Sewage backups happen for many reasons. Some examples are:
