Responding to our First Responders
First on the list was helping our first responders at the Clarkesville Fire Department and Demorest Police department. Next was extracting hundreds of gallons of water from the Clarkesville Library.
Private homes and businesses were assisted with the urgent task of removing flood waters. Also critical was quickly removing the muck, cleaning and sanitizing against any pathogens that might have been brought in with the rising water.
Additionally, commercial grade drying equipment was deployed, set in place and monitored daily to optimize the drying efforts of structures to prevent growth of mold or mildew.
Your hometown SERVPRO restoration team was proud to be a small part of the solution to this historic flood.
Thankfully, no one reported any serious injuries in Habersham County as a result of the Hurricane. Local first responders received national attention when a video of them rescuing people from the rising floodwaters was featured on ABC World News Tonight. Closer to home, people continue to praise their exhaustive, often heroic efforts.
County manager Phil Sutton said, “Habersham County would like to commend all E-911 staff, Sheriff’s Department Law Enforcement staff, Emergency Services staff including fire and emergency medical services, and importantly our Road Maintenance staff for their incredible work in the Hurricane Delta recovery process.”
