We are off, thanks to Runway to Success
Our team is going to Orlando, thanks to Runway to Success powered by Southwest Airlines.
Building a business in Annapolis has been a terrific opportunity for our owners. It has been over 40 years and there are still new opportunities that become available to help small companies like ours. We found out today that we have been awarded a round trip ticket to attend a conference this summer. Anne Arundel County Economic Development Corporation and Southwest Airlines teamed up to host Runway to Success for local businesses.
SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park submitted an application in 2017 in the hopes of funding the travel for a conference that will enhance our teams knowledge of trends in the water damage, fire restoration and mold remediation arenas.
You can see what other local companies were awarded tickets from Southwest here.
We will be sure to share everything we learn with you and our crews this summer.
Our IICRC certified techs are available now to help with frozen pipes, water or fire damage at 410.647.8181.

SERVPRO supports Mens' Health Month
SERVPRO Crew rocking the blue!
April is national Testicular Cancer awareness month. Our team has joined Anne Arundel County Professional Firefighters, Local 1563 who have been selling t-shirts since 2013, and raised over $26,000 for the DeCesaris Cancer Center at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis. The Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute is a comprehensive, regional leader in cancer care that includes the latest in prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment. Many different types of cancer specialists collaborate and contribute to the care of the patients. SERVPRO of Annapolis/ Severna Park supported the cause by wearing the blue shirts on Fridays in April.
It is not talked about often but, testicular cancer, the leading cancer in men 15-44, can strike at any age, yet it's hardly talked about. When detected early, it has a survival rate of over 95%. It is important to raise awareness to help save lives. For more information check out DeCesaris Cancer Institute.

Emergency Ready Profile
GIVE YOUR BUSINESS A SECOND CHANCE
The SERVPROEmergency READY Profile Advantage
As many as 50% of businesses close down following a disaster, according to the latest research. Of the businesses that survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind. And knowing you are “Ready for whatever happens” speaks trust to your clients and employees that in the event your business is affected by a disaster, they don’t necessarily have to be.
By developing a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile for your business, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation and can help minimize how water and fire damage can affect your business.

Emergency Ready Profile
Are you “Ready for whatever happens?”
Preparation is a key component for making it through any size disaster, whether it’s a small water leak, a large fire, or an area flood. The best time to plan for such events is not when the event happens, but well before it happens.
The SERVPRO® Emergency READY Profile serves as a quick reference of important building and contact information or can be an ideal supplement to any well-designed emergency preparedness or existing contingency program. Rather than simply reacting to disaster situations, most prefer proactive measures to establish a relationship with a restoration services company.
By working with SERVPRO® of Annapolis/Severna Park to develop your personalized Emergency READY Profile your business will receive the benefit of over 40 years of experience in reducing the impact of any natural or man-made disaster. SERVPRO® is a leader in water and fire damage response and can help you quickly get your property back in working order.

Green Light a Vet
We have changed our lobby light to green to support our Veterans. #greenlightavet
SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park is proud to be a part of this National Campaign that shows our support for the men and women who bravely served our country. We will be changing the light in our lobby to green to show our appreciation for the veteran’s in our community. If you would like to join us, read the information below and check out www.greenlightavet.com.
WHAT IS GREENLIGHT A VET?
America’s veterans are some of our nation’s bravest, hardest-working men and women. However, it’s hard to show them the appreciation they deserve when, back home and out of uniform, they’re more camouflaged than ever. Greenlight A Vet is a campaign to establish visible national support for our veterans by changing one light to green.
THE MEANING OF GREEN
Green is the color of hope, renewal and well-being. “Greenlight” is also a term commonly used to activate forward movement. The simple action of changing one light to green is intended to spark a national conversation regarding the recognition of veterans, and “greenlight” them forward as valued members of our communities.
CHANGE ONE LIGHT TO GREEN
Change one light to green in a visible location-on your porch, in your home, or at your office-and keep it glowing every day as a symbol of appreciation and support for our veterans. Then, share your support by taking a picture of your green light and posting it using the hashtag #greenlightavet.

SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park participated in The Annual Arnold Volunteer Fire Department’s Open House a few weeks ago, demonstrating how to effectively remove soot/smoke and how different types of fires require different cleaning protocols. Our contribution was the purchase of the shirts where the proceeds go toward “United for a Cure.” Our local firefighters not only take care of everyone in our community but go beyond by reaching out to Breast Cancer Survivors, another brave group of fighters!
