Fire Damage Assign A Meeting Place During Your Grand Strand Fire Assign A Meeting Place!

SERVPRO is running a series of 6 Fire Safety Tips in preparation for both "Back To School" and Fire Prevention Week which is in October this year.

This is tip #4 in our fire safety series, assign a place away from the danger and somewhere everyone can gather safely to meet up and be accounted.

The meeting place should be far enough away from the building that is on fire that there is no more immediate threat of danger should an explosion happen. However you also want it to be a place your younger children could locate alone if needed. Go over several options and pick the best one keeping everyone's limitations in mind.

Having an escape plan is as simple as knowing what routes to take to safely exit a room in the case of an emergency.

Fire Damage Get Out And Stay Out, Fire Safety In Carolina Forest Get Out & Stay Out!

SERVPRO is running a series of 6 Fire Safety Tips in preparation for both "Back To School" and Fire Prevention Week which is in October this year.

We can not express the importance of once you have gotten out of a building on fire safely, DO NOT go back in for any reason!

So many parents and brave onlookers have been badly burned or even worse lost their lives due to the fact that they went back into a burning building to retrieve a loved one, a pet or even something like a family photo. Doing this puts you back in grave danger and should not be attempted at all.

Only once the fire fighters have deemed it safe for re entry should anyone not equipped to fight the fire step a foot back inside.

So remember, GET OUT AND STAY OUT!

If you have suffered fire damage to your Carolina Forest home call SERVPRO of Horry Co now! 843-236-6278

Community SERVPRO of Horry County Bowling Fun Going on a different kind of strike at SERVPRO!

Teamwork is essential when you work as close as the employees here at SERVPRO do.

Bowling provides an amusing atmosphere in which members of your company can relax, have fun and get to know their fellow workers on a little more personal level. It provides an opportunity to discuss likes and dislikes, learn about each others families an home life as well as just unwind from the days activities.

Our franchise went bowling on Friday to have fun and reconnect the team. Every once in a while it is good to reset the company culture clock and have a good time without all the stress of having to remember you are doing a job.

Bowling was a great morale booster and was just what SERVPRO needed to start fresh and regain that team can do attitude once again.
