During  the  week  of  September  18th  – 22nd,  J.C.  Restoration,  Inc.  (JCR) successfully hosted over 340 industry professionals from the insurance and property management sectors from across the Chicagoland  area for seminars on water damage mitigation. Throughout the week, the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance, JCR’s  chosen  charity,  collected  $3,795.  These  donations  came  from  onsite  donations  from  attendees  and  the  class registration fees collected by JCR. 

Representatives from the IFSA and 1-800-BOARDUP were on hand throughout the week to speak of IFSA’s dedication to fire safety  and burn prevention  through  public  education,  and to share  that raised  donations  would  support  IFSA’s Camp “I Am Me.” Camp “I Am Me” is a week-long camp for children and teenagers who have experienced injuries from burns. To learn more about the Camp, please visit http://www.ifsa.org/camp-i-am-me.  

JCR presented an Illinois Department  of Insurance approved CE course entitled The Ripple Effect. The one-day course explained  the  processes  involved  in  water  damage  mitigation  and  restoration.  It  also  illustrated  how  insurance companies, property management professionals and restoration professionals can work together to provide property owners with rapid, responsive, technically accurate procedures for loss mitigation on water damage claims. By the end of the day, through class participation  and hands-on demonstrations  the attendees learned that advanced techniques and technologies save downtime and money throughout the water damage claims process. Classroom discussions also focused on the public health and safety issues associated with prolonged water exposure in water loss situations and the procedures and techniques required to address each class of contamination.  

“Supporting charitable programs and getting involved in the surrounding community is of tremendous importance to everyone  at JCR.  It is an honor  to select  the  IFSA  as our  Charity  for  this  event.  With  our  commitment  to provide educational  programs and resources,”  general manager Steve Rost stated, “J.C. Restoration  is pleased to support the IFSA and Camp I Am Me”.
