Hurricane Michael 2018
SERVPRO of Alexandria makes it a priority to support our fellow citizens when disaster strikes. In the fall of 2018 we sent two crews to Panama City, Florida to support the local SERVPROs. What we found was a community in crisis.
We rolled up our sleeves and got work. We were tasked with bring a few credit unions back online. With most banks being closed and everything operating on a cash basis it was imperative that we establish a portable ATM. We brought in generators to each branch so that the restoration process could proceed according to plan.
All in all, the community pulled together with SERVPRO and we got people back in their homes and back to work faster.
This experience served to remind us that helping people is the core of why we do what we do.
