Shark Warning! - Orleans, MA

8/20/2019 (Permalink)

There have been multiple sightings of sharks this summer so far, which sparks great concern over swimming at the beach and other marine activities like boating or sailing. These sightings have caused two Massachusetts beaches to close its swimming. The first sighting of a shark was in Orleans at Nauset Beach. Another shark was spotted near Marconi Beach.

Two people were attacked by sharks last year, resulting in one death, so surveillance and caution is increased for this summer. Always make sure to not go too far out where its difficult to make it back to shore. Use caution and look out for your loved ones who are swimming too.

Nate Lashley's Story & Rocket Mortgage Classic Triumph!

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County is a Proud Sponsor of the PGA Tour

Nate Lashley is a 36 year old pro American golfer who was had his fair share of adversity in his life. He started golfing at an early age with the support and help from his loving parents. 

His life would change forever after the 2004 University of Arizona regional match in Oregon. After seeing his parents and college sweetheart, Leslie, after his match Nate would get the horrible news that every son and boyfriend fears. Days after, after worrying about his families whereabouts, they found the bodies of his dad, mom, and girlfriend. They had been in a plane crash near Wyoming. 

After this, he could not be present in the game with everything going on. He chose to try something else, so he began working in real estate by 2012. However, shortly thereafter he realized that he wanted to golf, and that it came naturally to him. He recently won his first match as an alternate in the PGA Golf Tour. His story is inspiring for all of us who have overcome adversity and make it to the other side.

SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County has been a proud partner of the PGA Tour since 2014.

Fireworks Safety Tips - 4th of July

6/30/2016 (Permalink)

The Fourth of July is a time where we all gather with our families, kick back and relax the beauty of our great nation. When celebrating, we would like each and every one of you to have fun, but to also be careful at the same time. When dealing with fireworks, sparklers, or anything else that has the potential to cause harm if mishandled, the American Red Cross has come up with a few safety guidelines to adhere to so that accidents are at a minimum this holiday.

Where to view fireworks from

The safest way to enjoy fireworks it to attend a public fireworks display put on by professionals. Stay at least 500 feet away. If however, you choose to put on a display of fireworks from your home, here are a few safety steps to follow:

  • Never give fireworks to small children, and always follow the instructions on the packaging
  • Keep a supply of water close by a precaution
  • Make sure the person lighting fireworks always wears eye protection
  • Light only one firework at a time and never attempt to relight “a dud”
  • Store fireworks in a cool, dry place away from children and pets
  • Never throw or point a firework toward people, animals, vehicles, structures or flammable materials
  • Leave any area immediately where untrained amateurs are using fireworks

Educate Children about Fire

6/22/2016 (Permalink)

The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) urges parents to educate their children on the many dangers of playing with fire in an effort to prevent child injuries and fatalities.

Compiled into a short list, these tips advise parents to:

  1. Keep matches and lighters in a secured drawer or cabinet.
  2. Have your children tell you when they find matches and lighters.
  3. Develop a home fire escape plan, practice it with your children and designate a meeting place outside.
  4. Supervise young children closely. Do not leave them along even for short periods of time.
  5. Take the mystery out of fire by teaching children that fire is a tool, not a toy.
  6. Teach children the nature of fire. It is FAST, HOT, DARK, and DEADLY!
  7. Demonstrate how to stop, drop to the ground and roll if their clothes catch fire.
  8. Show children how to crawl low on the floor, below the smoke, to get out of the house and stay out in the case of a fire.
  9. Teach children not to hide from firefighters, but to get out quickly and call for help.

At SERVPRO of Southern Worcester County, we urge each and every parent to advise their children about these dangers. Should a situation involving fire occur in the future, please do not hesitate to give us a call and remember, SAFETY is the #1 most important factor to consider once a fire occurs.
