SERVPRO of Miami Beach Makes the Signs of Fire Damage Disappear
Wildfires on the West Coast
At SERVPRO® of Miami Beach, we want to take a moment to thank the firefighters in California, Washington, and Oregon. These fires started on federally owned forest, and they quickly spread to populated areas. Firefighters are working to contain the blazes and to prevent people from being harmed.
We appreciate their work more than we can say. SERVPRO of Miami Beach provides remediation and restoration after smaller, less devastating fires. We are in awe of those people who run towards fire rather than to safety.
Fires Can Happen Any Time
It takes just a few minutes for flame from a knocked-over candle or a towel on top of the stove to spread throughout the room and the entire building.
If a fire in Miami damages a local home, business, or community building, call us at 305- 532-5411.
Our emergency services are available 24 hours/day, every single day. When disasters start taking weekends and holidays off, we will too. Until then, we live by the motto: Faster to any size disaster.
Count on us to remediate damage from the fire itself, as well as from smoke, soot, and water or other fire suppressants.
Not all heroes wear capes. Here are some firefighting heroes who don’t star in comics.
In August 2020, eleven firefighters had to evacuate through a fireball when a warehouse exploded. They survived their injuries.
Omaha Firefighter Drew Gerken didn’t put away his heroism with his equipment after fighting devastating fires. He helped families get replacement furniture and other necessities after fires destroyed their homes.
Lt. Mike Burelson (Longmont, Colorado) not only worked to suppress a fire in a local business, he tackled a suspected arsonist when he saw the person trying to start another fire. Burelson said he knew he could handle the man because the rest of the firefighters were there to back him up.
Quotes from Firefighters
“In fire, you can plan everything out to the minute, and a minute before that, everything changes.” – Dan Felix
“When a man becomes a fireman his greatest act of bravery has been accomplished. What he does after that is all in the line of work.” – Edward Croker
“Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, & how to be free from it, that’s the point. Necessity of action takes away the fear of the act, and makes bold resolution the favorite of fortune.” – Francis Quarles
We Salute You
Thank you, firefighters in Miami, the United States, and across the world.
