The consistant manner in which our employees perform are such a blessing to this company. Day in Day out we have the best crew of men and woman that I have experienced in the restoration and cleaning business.
Shawn and I will be leaving around twelve today to attend the RIA conference and trade show in Atlanta. Shawn will be receiving his CR and WLS designations tomorrow night in a RSVP ceremony.
This is a high honor in the industry to get one of these certification. Shawn will be presented with both which he accomplished in one and half years. Congrats Shawn
I made it to the fire loss yesterday and was very proud of the way the project looked. From the plywood on the stamped concrete outside the house to the extremely perfect roof cover up. My hat off to John Gentry and the crew for a bang up beginning to this project.
Another large fire loss called in today. This custom home is three stories tall with four bedrooms. We have been blessed with a steady flow of projects.
Lunch at our Continuing Education was catered by “Crazy Eights”. You can find Ericka Phillips at thepersonalcook.com. It was scrumptious!
Yesterday, First Restoration hosted a Continuing Education Course here at the office. Around 25 agents and adjusters were in attendance and there was plenty of food to be eaten! This was a great opportunity for these agents and adjusters to see our facility while they earned some credits towards their requirements.
March 20th is the first day of spring. What a great time to get rid of that stuff that has been gathering dust all winter, some call this “Spring Cleaning”. Flush your house/business of all the clutter and trash. At this time it is a good idea to take a couple pictures of your valuables and of entire rooms as a whole with a digital camera. Store these photos off-site either on your home computer or on your work computer. If an accident does occur, having these pictures will help you along in your process of getting back on track.
For more information about making a photo inventory of your home call us at 828-684-1852 .
Monday mornings are always fun as I have Monday Morning Meetings. My department heads come to me with their last week’s work progress and any information that they feel I need to know. This is their meeting with me for the week. It is their meeting, they plan the agenda. I just listen and answer any questions they might have of me or input wisdom. These meeting have proven very helpful in engaging the department heads in their department. I want to thank our consultants for instituting this Monday Morning Meeting with us.
