SERVPRO Storm Team
SERVPRO Anniston has had the opportunity to participate on SERVPRO Storm Teams since we first bought the business two years ago. To be invited to participate on a Storm Team, a franchise has to be in compliance of all corporate STORM TEAM requirements and then accept the invitation when a storm event requires our services.
Right after we bought our franchise, we participated in the Baton Rouge, LA storm event. Baton Rouge was faced with devastating flood waters that damaged thousands of homes and business. We kept a crew in that area for one month, serving about 15 home and business owners. Most of the work we provide on these storm events has been water extraction, demolition, debris removal and setting up and monitoring drying equipment. Since the storm event in Baton Rouge, we participated in storm events in Kansas City also serving customers there after a flood event. We were called to that city twice when the city flooded twice within a month of each other. Houston was our next storm event. Flooding water and damaging rain as a result of Hurricane Harvey in late summer of 2017 created a massive storm event. Hundreds of franchises from al over the country joined us in Houston in late summer of 2017. We sent 3 crews there over the course of 6 weeks to assist customers. South Bend, IN storm event was initiated due to a wintry mix of ice and rain. We sent a crew to that city in late January 2018 to brave the cold temps and help customers there.
Recently our own area sustained devastating damage due to tornadoes that hit Jacksonville, AL damaging hundreds of structures - homes and businesses. We took hundreds of calls over the course of several weeks. Our Large Loss team came in and took over large commercial jobs including much of Jacksonville State University. Because of our training and preparation of our staff and our experience at out of town SERVPRO Storm Events we were more than prepared and ready to help our neighbors when the storm was in our own backyard! We are proud to here to help by keeping it GREEN in all of these storm events.
