ASR Property Restoration’s Hurricane Response Team responded to Houston, Texas, to provide support to fellow DKI franchises and to help those who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey and the catastrophic flooding that followed.
As a DKI Member Company, ASR Property Restoration was one of several DKI companies who responded to assist with storm damage cleanup. Two days after Hurricane Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane, the ASR Hurricane Response Team loaded 300-400 pieces of equipment, two support trucks, a large box truck, a mobile command center, and a trailer to assist in Houston. With a crew of six men, they began the 22-hour drive to Texas.
The crew spent a week in Texas assisting fellow DKI franchises and helping those in need. They spent time in between jobs walking flooded and damaged neighborhoods meeting and helping people that have been affected, giving back free services, helping and giving advice.
We are so proud of our entire crew for what they do everyday, and are grateful for the opportunity to help. We have never seen anything like the flooding and damage caused by Harvey first-hand, and will use this experience to help us be better prepared should an event of this magnitude occur on the West Coast.
