SERVPRO Supports the 25th District Police in North Philadelphia

7/17/2019 (Permalink)

On July 10th, SERVPRO volunteered to help out the 25th District Police (Philadelphia) during their community block party in North Philadelphia.

The event welcomed hundreds of people who enjoyed the several activities available. Summer camps from all around the town came by to play life-sized board games, climb the rock wall, jump in the bouncy houses, and eat all the different foods available.

The area where the event was held is often marked by violence and drugs, so having the Philadelphia Police host this awesome event was an excellent sight to see! It was a great opportunity to bring the community together in a space that usually does not see much positivity, but events such as this are what help the community grow and head towards a brighter future!

SERVPRO supported GPHA (Greater Philadelphia Hotel Association) Summer Hotel Olympics on July 11th at FDR Park in South Philadelphia!

Hotels from the area formed groups and took on several team-building challenges; there were dance battles, people showing off their skills during talent shows, and plenty of time to mingle with staff from other hotels.

There were also tons of games to be played, like: Name that Tune, Hamster Wheel Race, Marble Pipe Line, Hospitality Hoop La, Basket Head, Tray Relay, Pencil Catch!, and Lawn Darts.

To end the event, participants enjoyed snacks from SERVPRO and lunch from a local restaurant before the awards ceremony, where everyone was able to walk away with a medal!

It was amazing to be a part of such a fun event that brought different people from across Philadelphia together. SERVPRO hopes to be part of GPHA's Summer Olympics again next year!

Summer Storm Preparation Tips

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

Be prepared for power outages this summer with a few tips from SERVPRO of Germantown.

With more frequent storms, it's important to keep a flashlight and extra batteries at hand. Place a flashlight in each room of your home in a place that is easily accessible. Use care when burning candles.

Although the temperatures are higher, have extra blankets around your home in case it does get cold. If the temperatures do drop, do not use gas stoves, grills, or other open flame appliances as a source of heat.

Always be sure to have water bottles and food stored so you are ready for a long storm.

Keep a battery powered radio someplace in your home so you can listen to the news and other information if the power is out due to a storm.

While these tips are important in case of a power outage, having a phone to communicate is essential. Cell phones can run out of charge if there is no way to plug it in so it's useful to keep a hard-wired telephone in your home so you can call if there are any emergencies.
