Look for First Response out and about this summer!
Summer is in the air! The warm weather has arrived and the First Response staff is trading fleece jackets for t-shirts on job sites and in the office. Summer also brings lots of opportunities for fun, a chance to step away from the office and connect with the community. On the Sunshine Coast there are plenty of events coming up and opportunities for the team to put their best faces forward and meet some of you.
On May 19 First Response sponsored and had a booth at the Pender Harbour May Days festival. “The day was a lot of fun and a really good turnout,” shares Kristy Procknow, Project Manager for First Response. “It was great to chat and connect with so many people in the community, putting a face to our logo. People see our vans around the Coast all the time and it was nice to give some personality to the familiar logo on the side!”
Next month, Saturday, June 10th you’ll find the First Response team at the Gibsons Home and Garden Show. “We’re looking forward to this one,” continues Procknow. “It’s a great opportunity to connect with other local businesses in similar industries. We’re expecting some great booths and to see lots of best practice from our peers. It’s a bit more of a professional environment but we’ll definitely have something at our booth for the kids. They loved those tattoos at May Days!”
Procknow is already looking forward to July 27-29. “We wouldn’t miss the Sea Cavalcade! This festival is a staff favourite with its live entertainment, activities for the kids and epic Salmon Barbeque. We’ve been working on some fun interactive ideas and are really looking forward to sharing them.”
These community events give First Response the opportunity to connect with the neighbors and the community they’re so proud to service. Although the need for restoration services isn’t always by choice, First Response are glad to be available around the clock when the help is most needed, and hopefully ease some of the anxiety restoration projects can bring.
“The nature of our work generally means we see people when times can be stressful so it’s a real treat to connect with the community in a fun environment,” says Procknow. “Hopefully we give them peace of mind, putting a face to our businesses, that if they did ever need us they’re in good hands. And our DKI Canada membership allows us to keep our sponsorships local which is really important to us. We all live on the coast so are doubly invested in community here.”
The team is looking forward to meeting many of you around the community at these various events. Look for the First Reponses logo and please come and say hello. They can’t wait to meet you!
