During the week of September 16th – 20th, J.C. Restoration, Inc. (JCR) successfully hosted over 350 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 $2,255. 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.
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 ongoing 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”.
