JCR presented an Illinois Department of Insurance approved CE course entitled Smoke on the Water. The one-day course explained the processes involved in fire damage mitigation and restoration. It also illustrated how insurance companies, property management professionals and restoration professionals can work together to provide property owners with rapid, responsive, technically accurate procedures for loss mitigation on fire damage claims. By the end of the day, through class participation and hands-on demonstrations, the attendees learned that advanced techniques and technologies save downtime and money throughout the fire damage claims process. Classroom discussions also focused on the public health and safety issues associated with fire restoration situations.  We also welcomed 4 different Fire Department Chiefs from nearby departments to speak: Rolling Meadows, Bartlett, Pleasantview, and Mt. Prospect.

“Supporting charitable programs and getting involved in the surrounding community is of tremendous importance to everyone at JCR. It is an honor to continue to support the IFSA as our Charity for this event. With our commitment to provide educational programs and resources,” general manager Steve Rost stated, “J.C. Restoration is pleased to be a loyal supporter of the IFSA and Camp I Am Me”.
