In Honor of Memorial Day, Did you know....
The Civil War ended in the spring 1965 and is known as America's bloodiest battle. In the years following the Civil war, many Americans started having tributes to these countless fallen soldiers, decorating their graves with flowers and reciting prayers. This led to what was known as Decoration day, which later became an official federal holiday in 1971 known as Memorial day.
As Memorial day approaches and families gather together to kick off the summer with grilling or sitting by the fire, It's important to use all safety precautions when dealing with fire.
- Never leave a grill or fire pit unattended.
- Have a fire extinguisher handy.
- Clean of any excess grease.
Here at SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr we are 24 hour emergency service. Our specialty trained crew will work around the clock for any of your restoration needs.
SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr would like to wish you and your family a safe and Happy Memorial Day Weekend.

SERVPRO® recognized for contribution to the American Red Cross Disaster Responder Program
American Red Cross is a proud sponsor of the DIsaster Responder Program
Last week, the American Red Cross recognized SERVPRO®, headquartered in Gallatin, for supporting its Disaster Responder Program.
Disaster Responder members pledge donations in advance of disasters, to ensure the Red Cross can immediately respond to help meet the needs of those affected by disasters large and small. Thanks to the pre-investment made by SERVPRO®, the Red Cross is able to deliver help and hope to those impacted by nearly 66,000 disasters annually--the majority of which are home fires.
Seven times a day, someone in the U.S. dies in a home fire. To help combat this problem, the Red Cross launched a multi-year Home Fire Campaign that aims to reduce home fire deaths and injuries by 25 percent by the end of 2019. Since the Home Fire Campaign was launched in October of 2014, the Red Cross and its campaign partners have helped save at least 85 lives and installed more than 290,000 smoke alarms in 4,900 cities and towns in all 50 states.
SERVPRO's gift will enable the Red Cross to provide critical services to people impacted by home fires year-round, along with the lifesaving tools and information to support home fire prevention efforts. With the generous support from SERVPRO, Red Cross volunteers go door-to-door in communities to install smoke alarms and teach families about key fire prevention and safety measures.
"The American Red Cross relies on the generosity of our volunteers, donors and partners to fulfill our lifesaving mission," said American Red Cross President and CEO Gail McGovern. "Thanks to the support of SERVPRO® and Disaster Responder Program members, the Red Cross can immediately respond to the needs of people affected by disasters whenever and wherever they strike."
"We are proud to continue SERVPRO's relationship with the American Red Cross," said Sue Steen, Chief Executive Officer of SERVPRO Industries, Inc. "When disaster strikes, the Red Cross is on the front lines helping homeowners get back on their feet. Often times, SERVPRO® is also there, ready to help home and business owners pick up the pieces by restoring their property and peace of mind. We are proud to work alongside the American Red Cross and support their relief efforts through the Disaster Responder Program."
"Ongoing financial support from members of the Disaster Responder Program helps create a reliable funding base for disaster relief services, providing food, shelter, emotional support and other essential assistance," said Don Herring, Red Cross chief development officer. "Money donated by the public and members of our Disaster Responder Program is essential to our ability to assist disaster survivors and support the first responders and volunteers who work tirelessly at the scene of a disaster."
Red Cross services are provided to those in need of assistance at no cost and regardless of income through the generosity of Red Cross donors. Individuals can help people affected by disasters by making a gift to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Donations to Disaster Relief enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from disasters big and small.
