General Prayers during devastating Florida hurricane SERVPRO Technician praying with a local homeless man.

Let's be thankful this holiday season for all we have and let's help those who have so much less. This is our Technician, who is in Florida helping with the cleanup from the disastrous hurricane, kneeling down to pray with a homeless man. Neither one knew the picture was being taken, but it's things like this that make us proud of our employees at SERVPRO of DeRidder, Leesville, & Vinton.

The numbers are in:

According to the latest estimate there will be 110 million ( 110,000,000 ) people traveling this holiday season. This is a new all time high so to say "you may be delayed" is a no brainer. Airports will be over crowded, roads will be over crowded and oh yes, the weather may cause you a delay. So friends, don't let your delay be caused by a lack of planning on your part. If you are flying, they say you need to be there 2 hours early (heed this advice). If you are driving, take the extra time to make sure the car is ready for the trip. Remember, "cold country" needs special windshield washer fluid and have the coolant system checked. The water to anti-freeze ratio needs to with stand sub freezing temperatures.   Leave Santa some cookies and milk or hot chocolate. He will definetly appreciate it I am sure ;)

  • Christmas and New Year travel.              The Christmas Holiday is one of the busiest travel times of the year. With this in mind you need to  plan for extra traffic and people being in a hurry to get to their destination (to grandma's house we will go). Because of the "big rush" people tend not to be patient therefore they take unnecessary risk such as passing on the yellow line. I know you want to get to your family as quick as possible but you need to watch the "other guy". Also if you live in the south and you are headed north check tire pressure and your coolant level and don't forget to bring extra clothes. Be safe and Merry Christmas and to all a good night ;)
