Water and fire damage restoration company, Paul Davis, offers tips to consumers

during Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 7-13

Angier, NC - Paul Davis, a leading provider of fire, water and mold damage restoration services for residential and commercial properties is participating in this year’s National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Fire Prevention Week, October 7-13. This year’s theme is, Have 2 Ways Out and for children, Be Rabbit Ready.

According to NFPA, when fire strikes, a home could be engulfed in smoke and flames in just a few minutes. Have a home fire escape plan that prepares families to think fast and get out quickly when the smoke alarm sounds. If escape routes are blocked, two ways out should be a key part of an evacuation plan. Focus on the importance of fire escape planning and practice. Most importantly, have two ways out of every room through windows and doors. A fire escape or ladder from window exits is imperative.

In 2011, U.S. fire departments responded to more than 1.3 million fires. These fires resulted in more than 3,000 civilian fire fatalities, and 17,500 civilian fire injuries along with an estimated $11 billion in direct property loss.  Home fires caused 84 percent of civilian fire deaths. Visit www.fpw.org.

Brantley Barnes, Paul Davis office owner, suggests additional tips to help keep homeowners and their families safe:

• Smoke alarms should be installed; never remove or disable smoke alarms.

• Test smoke alarms at least monthly by pushing the test button.

• Don’t leave cooking items or clothing irons unattended.

• Don’t let children play with fire.

• Handle gasoline or propane-powered equipment cautiously.

• Install carbon monoxide detectors.

• Have a family plan in place and conduct a home “Fire Drill” at least twice a year.

• Have a portable ladder in each second floor room.

• Check fire extinguishers for expiration and replace as needed.

• Have an updated, emergency first aid kit.

During the awareness campaign, Paul Davis offices across the U.S. in concert with fire industry professionals will help to spread the word in their communities about the importance of fire safety. Visit the local office website at http://pauldavisrestorationfayetteville.com

A Cleaner and Greener Tomorrow Begins with Special Earth Day Celebration

DRY BRANCH, Ga., (April 20, 2012) – Advanced Disposal Services, Inc., a regional integrated environmental services company, announced the completion of its landfill gas-to-energy generation facility at Wolf Creek Landfill Thursday during a special Earth Day ceremony held for the community, partners and government officials.

Paul Davis Emergency Services in Talladega and St. Clair donates to local residents in need

Lincoln, Ala. - February 13, 2012 - Paul Davis Emergency Services of Greater Talladega & St. Clair recently donated water, baby items and baked goods to help those who suffered from the devastating tornadoes in late January. Workers and residents throughout Clay and Pinson also received help from the Paul Davis office staff with getting vehicles out of damaged garages in order to restore access to transportation and other emergency needs.

According to Bill Parham, Paul Davis' local general manager, his company engaged in the efforts because of the severe conditions brought on by tornado damage and as part of the company's Restoring America program which helps those in need.

Also in January, and as a part of the Restoring America initiative, the local firm donated materials and labor to an elderly woman in Wedowee when she could no longer pay for home repairs from a flooded basement due to a broken hot water heater. The Paul Davis crew dried, cleaned and deodorized baseboards and floors that were wet from damage. Parham noted that the basement had to be thoroughly dried to preserve the home's integrity and to prevent the conditions that would allow for the possible formation of mold along with health issues that could threaten the elderly homeowner. The company also donated equipment that dried the structure including dehumidifiers and fans.

"We strive to do the right thing in our business. And, sometimes we meet individuals who need help. We are pleased to have assisted many people our community," said Parham.
