Priority Response Emergency Planning (PREP)

The Priority Response Emergency Planning Program consists of a partnership, in which we work with you to develop an emergency/disaster response plan. It allows our Water Out team to provide a better overall experience for you, our customer, should a disaster or catastrophic event strike because all of the logistics are taken care of ahead of time. We have a plan going into a loss, know how to handle the loss, and can get to work quickly because we are all on the same page before our Water Out crews arrive on-site.

Are YOU ready for the next emergency or disaster?

Water Out is a PREP-Certified Contractor serving residential and commercial property owners in and around the Tri-State area. We understand commercial building construction and have specific training to be knowledgeable about disaster planning and response after catastrophic events including:

  • Tornados
  • Flooding
  • Freezing temperatures
  • Widespread fires
  • and more

Our Priority Response Emergency Planning (PREP), is a program we customize for you, your business, and your building that anticipates an emergency or disaster, sets up an immediate plan of action to react and lays the groundwork for restoring the building back to its pre-loss condition. This means if Mother Nature strikes, your team knows what to expect – and our team is ready to mobilize to get your company in Fort Wayne, Auburn, Angola, Syracuse, Warsaw, Decantur, or anywhere in between back on its feet fast.

The PREP Process

The process is simple:

  1. Meet our Water Out PREP Certified Contractor to sign a PREP agreement.
  2. Our trained staff will visit your building. During this visit we will:
    • Brainstorm potential threats to your building
    • Identify priorities for your company
    • Locate and document all key structural and mechanical components (stairwells, elevators, shut-off valves, electrical panels, etc.)
    • Set expectations
  3. Our certified PREP Contractor will then create a report outlining a list of procedures and key steps to take in case of an emergency.

This report will be available to all key personnel in your company in the locations that will best serve you during a restoration or disaster situation.


When disaster does strike, your status as a PREP client gives you priority response from the Water Out restoration team. You go to the top of the list, receive immediate attention, and enjoy the comfort of knowing that our team knows your building, and can get right to the task of mitigation. This saves you aggravation, money, and most importantly, TIME! There are many ways to fix the damage after a disaster. But the most effective way is to have a plan in place before the disaster occurs. Being able to prepare for any event will, undoubtedly, lessen the overall effect on your building and your business.
