Fire Departments Rely on SERVPRO's Esporta Washing System for Clean Turn-Out Gear
SERVPRO Supports Our Local Fire Fighters in the Greater Chicago Area
There are many ways that a local company or franchise can give back to the community. Whether to respond to a medical emergency or to a house fire, our regional Fire Departments are ready 24/7 to help, just as SERVPRO is also available 24/7/365 to assist our neighbors.
When a house fire breaks out in Chicago Heights, Park Forest or Beecher, the local Fire Department arrives swiftly to extinguish the flames and provide safety and comfort for the unfortunate residents. Documented studies have shown that two out of every three of these heroes will have a cancer diagnosis. They put themselves in jeopardy while saving lives and properties. They don personal protective equipment like helmets, boots, gloves, and turn-out gear that often becomes contaminated with combustible pollutants and substances.
So, how does SERVPRO provide a valuable service to our communities? We proudly support the Mabas Division 24, Mutual Aid Box Alarm System comprised of 21 Fire Departments in South Suburban Cook County, IL. We offer to clean and decontaminate the soiled break-out gear. This not only protects our First Responders from possible chemical and biological exposure but mitigates the degradation of the gear. In today's world, most communities have budgetary concerns that even affect their fire departments. Considering that 85% of the personnel are volunteers, we contribute to their well-being and safety as they do to ours. Since we are a full-service restoration company, we offer to our Emergency Responders discounted rates for any services we provide to their properties and contents.
The Esporta Wash System is installed in our SERVPRO facility where we can safely and quickly wash, decontaminate, and dry the break-out gear, including the helmets and boots. The NFPA, National Fire Protection Association, recognizes the power of this resource because it meets the stringent requirements for personal protection. Many insurance companies contract with us small and large-loss fire, water, and mold cleanups since our restoration rate of contents is about 90%. This is a win-win situation for all. Fewer expenses, faster results, and we even get to save our neighbor's daughter teddy bear.
