2019 Beach Safety Tips!
Vacation is a time to relax with family and friends, not to be stressed or worried. Here at SERVPRO of St. Mary's and Calvert Counties, we want to make sure when you take that trip to the beach this summer you are being safe!
Things to remember:
- Always swim near a lifeguard, and never when they are not on duty!
- Ask the lifeguards about hazardous water conditions and things to look out for while taking a dip.
- The ocean is not a pool! Swim where you are comfortable.
- Be aware of your surroundings. Know where you are staying so if you drift away you can find your way back.
- Apply sunscreen regularly throughout the day and be sure to drink plenty of fluids.
- SMILE, you are at the beach! Enjoy your time and make smart/safe decisions.
Do I Need Renters Insurance?
You may wonder if Renter Insurance is a necessity or if it is just an extra cost and if you really need to have it. Well the answer is YES! Yes, Renter Insurance is a must.
As a renter, you need insurance to protect your belongings. The owner of the property you are renting from will likely have insurance on the house but that does not include what you own. For example, if you have damage to your property from a pipe burst, a flood, a fire, hail, trees falling or other related events that were not planned, renters insurance will have you and your belongings covered.
Renter Insurance is afforable and will help you have that peace of mind in the event of the unthinkable happening. SERVPRO of St. Mary's and Calvert Counties works directly with your insurance company to insure your belongings are repaired and restored "Like it never even happened." Be sure to call us if you need services to your retail property!
Flash Back Friday
Talk about a flash back! This photograph was taken with SERVPRO of St. Mary's and Calvert Counties original sign back in 1984, located on their present office on 235. Photographed is the owner Vince Whittles, with five of the first employees to ever work for him. Three of the six photographed are still with us today, but with a little more grey hair.
- Vince (second one on the left) has been the Owner of SERVPRO of St. Mary's and Calvert Counties for the past 35 years, with many years to come.
- Frank Turner (furthest one from the right) started back in 1991 as the Production Manager and still is 28 years later.
- Eddy Farell (last one on the left) has been with us since 1996 making 22 years as Duct Cleaning Production Manager.
Since this photo, SERVPRO of St. Mary's and Calvert Counties has grown significantly through excellent costumer service and dedication to the brand. Having employees still with us from the start, we can definitely say that we are one of the most experienced restoration companies in Maryland. We are excited about the future for SERVPRO of St. Mary's and Calvert Counties as we get ready for our next move into a larger facility. Relocating to a larger facility in the area will allow us to provide even better services for our customers and allow us to build our brand, SERVPRO of St. Mary's and Calvert Counties, even larger.
