Important Home Sprinkler Information!

5/22/2019 (Permalink)

From the United States Fire Administration:

Community residents need to know that home fires can become deadly within two minutes or less. They burn hot and grow quickly, spreading flames, deadly smoke and heat throughout a home. Two minutes isn't much time to escape. This is especially true for older adults, young children and people with disabilities who can’t get out as quickly.

There may be a lot of misinformation about fire sprinklers in your community. Remind residents that home fire sprinklers detect a fire and control it automatically. The sprinkler puts water on a fire while it's small, controlling the amount of heat, flames and poison smoke. Home fire sprinklers give families and their pets time to get out.

The U.S. Fire Administration suggests visiting HFSC’s (Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition) website for resources that discuss the importance and functionality of fire sprinklers. Please check out this link and spread the message! https://homefiresprinkler.org/new-resources/

On Saturday, March 27, SERVPRO of Germantown participated at the community event, Convoy of Hope, which was held at Hunting Park in Philadelphia!

SERVPRO provided a resting area under our tent for First Responders and other patrons to relax during the day’s festivities, as well as several generators to power the event, around 80 cases of specially branded, SERVPRO water, and dumpsters/trashcans that were distributed throughout the park for the Convoy!

This event was eye opening for our staff, as thousands of people funneled in throughout the course of the day to take advantage of the opportunities the Convoy of Hope had to offer. Patrons had access to FREE clothes, shoes, food, haircuts, breast cancer screenings, a job search tent, and much more!

SERVPRO is extremely humbled to have partnered with an international, humanitarian-relief organization in order to give back to the community; we are grateful to have assisted them and applaud them for their driving passion to feed the world through children’s feeding initiatives, community outreach, and disaster response.

SERVPRO of Pennypack/Bustleton: Citizen's Police Academy Graduates!

4/26/2019 (Permalink)

On Tuesday, April 23rd, our employees, Robyn M Colajezzi and Rob D'Emilio Jr., graduated from Quakertown Police Department’s, Citizen’s Police Academy.

Over the course of 8 weeks, students gained knowledge of: the police department’s K9 Unit and Special Response Team, self-defense tactics, firearms training, and much more, before shooting pistols at the police department’s firing range.

The culmination of the academy was bittersweet, for the friendships made and lessons learned will always be a constant reminder of the great experiences we’ve had while enrolled in this “fraternity”, as Chief Scott McElree called it at the graduation ceremony.

SERVPRO of Pennypack/Bustleton would like to thank the Quakertown Police Department for allowing our staff to take part in the academy, as well as Chief Scott McElree and Sgt. Steven Stoneback for offering this wonderful opportunity to the public.

We highly suggest registering for next year’s academy — we’ll see you there!
