NEW MACHINE IN TOWN CAN CLEAN 85% OF NON BURNED

 

SOFT GOODS IN A HOME AFTER A FIRE!

Paul Davis Restoration of Polk County just took delivery of the new Esporta Wash System. This machine

is designed to recover "Soft Contents" from fire and water disasters. It's patented design features "safe

hold" compartments which are designed for holding delicates, like leathers, and what is known as

Category 2 & 3 soiled laundry. It can disinfect, deodorize and wash up to 160 lbs. of laundry, shoes and  

other bulky goods that might have survived your fire or water disaster.

 

Traditional front and top loading washing machines utilize mechanical action to remove soil. It is not

effective for the removal of smoke, soot and bacteria. The patented Esporta Wash System along with

specially formulated proprietary detergents completely removes smoke, soot, bacteria and other

contaminants through hydraulic pressure.

This machine is

particularly suited

for fire victims

that have contents that

can't just be replaced or

homeowners who don't

have insurance and have 

to clean their contents.

 

This machine is particularly suited for fire victims

that have contents that can't just be replaced or

homeowners who don't have insurance and have

to clean their contents. Imagine how a fire victim

would feel knowing that the blanket passed down

through the family can be restored to new. Or the

fire victim that, for whatever reason, has no insurance

but can take their property and have it cleaned

instead of thrown away. Many fire victims are

unaware that this new technology exsists and it is right here in Winter Haven.

 

  

As a public service, Fire Departments should let fire victims know that this technology is available in 

their area. Paul Davis Restoration of Winter Haven is a trusted member of the business community.

They specialize in Fire & Smoke damage and Water & Mold damage. Customers in need of their

 service can contact the office that is located on Spirit Lake

Road in Winter Haven at 299-9688 or 644-7373.

Another service that Paul Davis offers is free board up. If

a fire victim has doors or windows that are not operational

after a fire, call Paul 24/7 and they will come out and board

up for free. The Public Safety Network.com endorses Paul

Davis Restoration as a trusted member.

  little_billy5

Over the last 20+ years, the story of "Bopsy, The Littlest Firefighter"  (sometimes referrred to as "Billy") has circulated  worldwide. It appeared in the first "Chicken Soup for the Soul" book and has also become one of the most circulated chain emails. Just search the word "Bopsy" in any web search engine, and you'll see just how many web-sites around the world contain the story.

 

The story is about a little boy with Leukemia, and his dying wish to become a Firefighter. The Phoenix Fire Department is featured in the story because of the exceptional customer service paid to this little boy and his family. One of the main charactersin the story is Fireman Bob,who is our Phoenix Engineer Bob Walp.

 

There is another child with a similar story in circulation as well. His name is Chris, and he wanted to be a Police Officer, both are listed on the Make-a-Wish foundations website. Christopher (Chris) is where Make-a-Wish traces its roots to, thought Billy and below Bob Walp were the first wish granting recipients.

 Aldridge/Benge Lightweight Truss Act

 

The Florida Legislature has adopted into law Administrative Code 69A-60.0081.

The purpose of this law is to require the placement of an identifying symbol on

structures with a light-frame truss system. The symbol is to warn Firefighters who

may enter a building of this type construction. Two Orange County Firefighters

Mark Benge and Todd Aldridge lost there lives when they entered a Gift Shop with

this type of construction, and the building collapsed on them suddenly. Lightweight

Truss Systems are prone to collapse due to how they are built. Governor Charlie

Christ sign the bill into law in June of 2008 and became effective December 3, 

2009.

The symbol is a Maltese Cross measuring 8 inches horizontally and 8 inches 

vertically, with a bright red reflective color, designed in accordance with the 

examples shown below.
