1 FGS The Restoration Company offers emergency planning to help homeowners, community associations and businesses reduce risks and losses from natural disasters, including fires, floods and tornadoes, as well as manmade disasters, such as vehicle impact and vandalism. We assist with the development of a Mitigation Action Plan (MAP) that customizes the steps to take during an emergency. We ll provide a no-cost evaluation of your property, gathering contact information and identifying shutoff valve locations and other important areas so that if disaster strikes, you re prepared to respond. About Us FGS The Restoration Company, established in 1988, works with insurance companies and policyholders to restore homes and businesses after damages caused by fire, smoke, water, wind, hail, vehicle impact and vandalism. We re based in Madison, Wisconsin our territory expands throughout Dane County and into surrounding counties, and we occasionally work outside these areas. We measure our success by how quickly we can reestablish a person s daily routine, with quality craftsmanship, the most advanced restoration equipment and decades of experience, while facilitating transparent communication among all parties. We have a growing, in-house staff of project managers, painters, drywallers, carpenters and cleaners who provide detailed estimates and timely repairs, as well as 24-hour emergency services, the restoration of personal belongings and commercial build-outs.
2 How does it work? Property evaluation: We conduct a no-cost evaluation of your property. It s a thorough evaluation of the entire grounds, as we take pictures while discovering the location of shutoff valves and other areas of interest. Risk assessment: We perform a detailed risk assessment of your property. This consists of uncovering potential hazards, discussing previous occurrences, estimating the probability of a disaster and calculating the impact of a disaster. Plan development: We talk to you about actions to take to reduce risks, and we review vital documents, such as floor plans and blueprints. Then we establish a strategy to implement those actions, ensuring a comprehensive, integrated approach. Emergency contacts: You assemble a list of phone numbers of utility companies associated with your property, along with phone numbers of other essential entities. This takes only a short time to complete, and it s a much-needed resource. Point of contact: You designate somebody at your property as Emergency Management Coordinator. This carries the responsibility of putting the MAP in place, distributing the MAP to stakeholders and updating the MAP each year. Sign on the dotted line: We enter into a nonbinding agreement stating that we ll assist you with emergency planning at no cost, and in the event of a disaster, FGS will make repairs at your property. The length of the agreement is one year, with an option for renewal in one-year terms. Online content: We upload your emergency contacts, vital documents and photos of your property into a secure portal of our website, FGSrestoration.com. Using the login information that we provide, you can easily access your MAP materials any time, even on your mobile device. Our Services For Fire Damage We possess the most advanced restoration equipment, and we go through an in-depth examination, customized to each loss, to remove the smell of smoke, never using paint to hide the smell. We re experienced in selective and complete demolition, knowing what can be salvaged to save you both time and money. We employ trained staff to clean your possessions with the utmost care at our Madison warehouse, so you don t need to worry about further damage caused by temporary storage units. For Water Damage We use a scientific process to determine how much dehumidification is necessary, enabling us to remove musty smells. We utilize the latest technology to detect the full extent of water damage, never further damaging walls with probing and never missing bigger problems that could lead to mold down the road. We can dry a structure in place, saving carpeting, padding, trim and drywall.
