Fire Safety & Your Pets

It's important to include your pets in your fire evacuation plan. After all, they're family too! In the event of a fire, you will likely have your mind set on getting your family, and yourself, safely out of your home. To ensure your entire family (pets included) gets to a safe spot quickly, here are a few tip to make sure nobody gets left behind.
*KEEP COLLARS AND LEASHES AT EXIT
Animals, like humans, can get disoriented and scared when a fire happens. The combination of loud alarms, smoke, and flames in their home can make even the most calm pet panic. Be sure to keep all members of your family close and safe.
*KNOW WHERE YOUR PETS ARE AT
Knowing where your pets are at all times helps to decrease the time it takes to get them out of the house safely. In the evenings, be sure your pet is in his/her crate, or barricaded into a room. Sometimes animals will hide when they get scared, so keeping them in a designated safe place will make your rescue mission a lot easier.
*INCLUDE PETS WHEN PRACTICING EVACUATION DRILLS
We all know, after making an exit strategy for house fire, or what to do in the event of a tornado, we should practice. Don't forget to practice with your pet. Designate a family member to retrieve your animal(s) and PRACTICE WITH THEM! This helps to reduce any confusion on who should be doing what in the event of a real emergency.
SERVPRO knows that the safety of your pets is important following a disaster, so we've done our part in outfitting our community's local fire departments with pet oxygen masks. This ensures that all beings in the home have access to clean oxygen after potential smoke inhalation. Stay safe neighbors! And remember, practice makes perfect.
Our roadside spring cleaning is complete!
SERVPRO of Eaton County has been a part of Adopt-A-Highway since 2008. We proudly maintain a 2 mile stretch of rural highway from spring to fall every year.
Adopt-A-Highway and SERVPRO share a couple common goals that can be summed up by the 2 SERVPRO slogans.
- SEE GREEN, THINK CLEAN - Not only does this refer to our brightly colored service vehicles, but also to the sides of our roadways. We like to see clean, green grass as we travel to help our next customer.
- Like it never even happened. - Not only do we strive to make your home or business "Like it never even happened.", but we also like to make our roadsides look the same. We do our best to get your home or business back to its original condition previous to the loss, and clean up our roadsides to their pre-manmade litter conditions as well.
Grand Opening Celebration in St. Johns
The set up for our Celebration!
In October we started construction on our new addition to the exsisting building in St. Johns. We needed the space to better serve our Clinton & Gratiot Counties franchise but, this additional will allow to better serve all of our coverage areas and beyond. We were very excited to hold our Grand Opening celebration this past weekend during the 32nd Annual St. Johns Mint Festival. We had many fun activities going on. These activities included a SERVPRO bounce house, a hot dog cook out and give aways. We also had the Team Beacon #T3 SERVPRO Modified Racecar on display for visitors to sit in and take pictures with. The St. Johns Fire Department also stopped by to eat and to show off their brand new truck. All in all it was a great way to connect with the community and get started at our shop!
