“Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops. At all.” – Emily Dickinson
What’s left of Hurricane Irene may be lifting up and off the Canadian coast to swirl out over colder Atlantic waters and dissipate into the nothingness from which she came. But the millions of people dealing with her aftermath will long remember the days of anticipation and fear, the hours of her wrath and the months ahead as recovery efforts begin.
While not as ferocious a storm as originally predicted, many lives have been lost, many more injured, homes and businesses destroyed and livelihoods disrupted. Hurricane Irene recovery requires a combination of neighbors helping neighbors, communities banding together, state, local and non-profit aid. Recovery also requires the customer service, technical expertise and professional dedication shared by all locations in the Rainbow International® franchise owner network.
Making every effort to save lives and comfort the injured and displaced comes first. Our nation is blessed with first-responders who, as we speak, are doing their jobs with passion and perseverance. Our gratitude is with police, fire and EMT crews today and in the days ahead.
Once rescue efforts come to a close, the water damage cleanup and restoration specialists of Rainbow International stand poised to mobilize, move in and assist home and business owners in any way possible. Water damage mitigation, especially on this scale, is best performed by trained professionals with the right tools and technology to do the job. Other critical services provided by Rainbow during storm response include board-up, tarp-over, contents inventory and contents restoration of damaged homes and businesses.
