SERVPRO of Coos, Curry, and Del Norte Counties has a new Office Manager!
Welcoming Star to the team, we all have had a great year so far here at SERVPRO of Coos, Curry, and Del Norte Counties!
Star has been with us since mid January and has completed the office training necessary to wear the hat as our new office Manager! She comes from a sales and medical background, so she has a lot to bring to the table as far as accommodation and helping homeowners and agents through the insurance claims process.
We are very lucky to have such a bright Star in our office, and when you call in to our office you will find out just how friendly she is. As a mother of 3, she knows how to have fun while getting the job done.
Growth of SERVPRO of Coos means growth in our community, and that's what were all about here at SERVPRO of Coos, Curry, and Del Norte Counties.
Thank you for being a part of our community, we are always faster to help you in any size disaster. Now, with an additional Star on the team!!!
Do's and Don'ts of Fire & Smoke Damage
What To Do Until Help Arrives
Fire and Smoke Damage
- Limit movement in the home to prevent soot and particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpet.
- Keep hands clean. Soot on the hands can further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.
- Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.
- If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator completely and prop doors open to help prevent odor.
- Wipe soot from chrome on kitchen and bathroom faucets, trim and appliances, then protect these surfaces with a light coating of lubricant.
- Wash both sides of leaves on houseplants.
- Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers to stop soot particles from getting in or out of the HVAC system.
- Attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting your local SERVPRO Franchise professional.
- Attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first consulting your local SERVPRO Franchise Professional.
- Consume and food or beverages that may have ben stored close to fire, heat, or water damage. These items may be contaminated.
- Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet. Wiring may also be wet or damaged and cause electrical shock, and air movement may create secondary damage.
- Send affected garments to a dry cleaner. Improper cleaning may set in smoke odor.
We made The World Newspaper!
Alicia Pinedo, Steve Pinedo, Liz Payne, and Star Owens representing our team.
We were chosen to be interviewed due to SERVPRO earning the top franchise opportunity for the 15th year in a row, and we are very proud to be part of a company that is so valued by our community!
Our reporter was awesome, and made us feel very appreciated.
Here at SERVPRO of Coos, Curry and Del Norte Counties we are all local as well as employee owned and operated. We work very hard on all we do to make ourselves known in the community, but to have a news reporter come out was a little nerve racking!
Nevertheless, we took our opportunity and invited the World Newspaper out to out shop, and we are so glad we did! It's great working with other businesses in the area, especially when they come to shine some light on our hard work and give us a pat on the back.
A huge shout out again to Nick, our reporter, and we look forward to sharing this post with all of our community members!
National Night Out
The North Bend and Coos Bay Police Departments, provided a free event to the community. SERVPRO was excited to help with this yearly event.
National Night Out was established in 1984 with funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), U.S. Department of Justice.The program is administered by the National Association of Town Watch, a nationwide organization dedicated to the development, maintenance, and protection of community-based, law enforcementaffiliated crime prevention activities. National Night Out was developed as a crime prevention program that emphasizes building a partnership between the police and the community. Community involvement in crime prevention is generated through a multitude of local events, such as block parties, cookouts, parades, contests, youth activities, and seminars.
With continued funding from BJA, participation in National Night Out crime prevention activities has increased from 2.5 million people in 400 communities in 1984 to more than 32 million people in 9,530 communities in 1999. Project 365, which helps communities target specific problems over the course of the year, was also developed through BJA funding.
National Night Out’s objectives include refining the nationwide crime prevention campaign, documenting successful crime prevention strategies, expanding Project 365, disseminating information about successful community-based strategies, providing technical assistance on crime prevention program development, and developing the National Night Out Web site. With continued support from BJA, National Night Out is making communities across the nation safer places to live.
