Here at Paul’s Professional Window Washing, 2012 was a year of milestones!
We celebrated our 31st year in business, Lisa and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, our 40th year with the Boy Scouts of America and our 6th year with the Crescenta Valley’s Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) Program.
As we watched the news of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation, our hearts and prayers continue to go out to the people on the East Coast. 2.5 million people have been affected, with thousands without power in extreme cold temperatures for days, we know people need our help and are suffering.
In CERT training class, Lisa and I teach “Disaster Preparedness” and how to make a “Family Disaster Plan” andhow to have a Grab and Go Bag for everyone in the family. We are certified LASD and FEMA Trainers and just finished our 12th class with over 300 people now trained in the Crescenta Valley Area.
Hurricane Sandy was a milestone storm, just like the Station Fire, except Sandy affected the entire Eastern Seaboard, from the Carolinas up to Boston. The storm’s path was 1,000 miles wide and extended inland to the Ohio Valley. It’s a lesson for all of us. It can happen to any of us especially here in California with earthquakes. On the next blog, you’ll find an “Emergency Preparedness Checklist” from CERT and the Red Cross. We hope you use it to get prepared NOW, not after the fact.
Also, we will be donating $10.00 for every job we do in both December and January to the Red Cross Relief Fund for the survivors of Hurricane Sandy. That’s right, we’ll donate $10 in your name for getting any windows or gutter job done.
We will also be having our 10% off special in January as well, so now you can get 10% off AND $10 donated to help those affected by “Sandy.” It’s our way of giving back!
