This week our Marketing Manager, Tricia, attended the ground breaking of a new local community. This community center will be a large asset to the community we service. Tricia is apart of many boards and chambers and has built strong relationships within the community. SERVPRO of DeKalb County is very involved in the community and having a community center is a wonderful way to bring the community together. SERVPRO strives to make long lasting connections and to service the community the best we can.
Thank you Tricia for attending and speaking at this very important ground breaking of the new community center.
Local Donation to Child Care Center
Our Marketing Manager, Tricia Herrera, who sits on many local Chamber of Commerce as well as many important boards within our community, is pictured here receiving a donation to a local child care center. A local family owned store donated the money to the center, that Tricia is a board member of. At SERVPRO of DeKalb County we strongly believe in being active and present within our community. We like to be seen as pillars in the community and someone that can be relied on.

Gearing Up for Back to School
As we in DeKalb County gear up for back to school season, we just want to ensure students are taking the proper steps to stay safe, here are some tricks and tips while moving into a dorm or apartment
1. Make a list of your valuables, including make, model and serial number. Make a video record of what you have.
2. Have a fire escape plan. Always have two ways out of your residence when you hear the fire detector alarm.
3. Invest in renters insurance
4. Always lock your car and your room/dorm room/apartment/home.
5. Make sure to turn off appliances
6. Don't leave candles or microwaves on for too long
We at SERVPRO of DeKalb County hope you have a wonderful fall semester

SERVPRO of DeKalb County helps local school children have a fun filled afternoon
SERVPRO of DeKalb County owner Steve Bryant and Marketing Representative Tricia Herrera stepped out of the office for an afternoon to help local Central School students have a fun filled carnival. Central School has a large Hispanic number of students and this event was put on thru the Rochelle United Methodist Church to make all students feel important and interact together. The staff at the church had been communicating with this students weekly thru messages posted on the windows of the church, The students became so excited to read each new message weekly that it so became the high lite of their Monday morning. The church staff and volunteers decided that a school carnival with games and prizes was a great way to celebrate this year long relationship. Steve and Tricia helped to man the games and spent the hour having just as much fun as the kids! SERVPRO of Dekalb County is involved in many community activities and believes that involvement is as important as ever.
