Being local means, we take great pride in participating and giving back to our local community. The annual Do Dat BBQ Cookoff is one of our favorites with the proceeds going to the great work of the Nacogdoches Area United Way!

The Nacogdoches Area United Way (NAUW) is a volunteer organization that supports and funds programs that address three essential impact areas; health and well-being, education, and financial stability. The organization is guided by a thirty-member Board of Directors who establish policies and procedures designed to carry out the mission and vision of the organization. NAUW serves Nacogdoches, Shelby, and San Augustine Counties. United Way Worldwide is the franchisee for over 1,800 United Ways in forty different countries. 

There are typically 30 or so teams cooking up BBQ to serving samples to guests! There is a family-friendly fun atmosphere with many vendors selling refreshments and other goods! 

The history of the Do-Dat BBQ in Nacogdoches goes back more than twenty years. Countless memories of friendly competition and family fun have been made on the midway of the Nacogdoches County Exposition Center.

One of the most interesting parts of living in Texas is that everyone cooks BBQ. Texans also know that they have the best BBQ around, and it's better than yours.

After the water begins to recede and authorities determine it is safe for residents to return to their property, there are several steps that can be taken to prevent additional damage from occurring. SERVPRO® suggests the following steps to help minimize additional damage to your property while waiting for disaster professionals to arrive.

  • If the water has entered the structure through the flooding of a creek, stream, or river, or if it has filtered through insulation during its intrusion, it is considered to be black water and could be hazardous to your health. Avoid contact with contaminated items as much as possible.
  • Take the greatest caution while entering your home, and wear sturdy shoes and protective clothing when dealing with flooded areas.
  • Do not attempt to operate any electrical equipment while standing in wet or damp locations.
  • Throw away all foods—even canned goods—that have come into contact with floodwaters.
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and pillow cushions for drying. Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • If your home has a crawlspace, be aware excess moisture in this area can often foster mold growth.

SERVPRO’s Disaster Recovery Team mobilizes from across the country, as needed, to support large storm events.

Why a Closed Door Can Save Lives During a Fire

5/2/2022 (Permalink)

Burned door A Closed Door Can Save Lives During a Fire

Fire officials say that closing the door can be one of the most critical actions people can take to stop the spread and save lives when confronting a fire.  Closing doors can cut off the pump, slowly starving a fire of much of that fuel. It can also provide one of the most effective barriers to temporarily inhibit the spread of flames and smoke, giving firefighters crucial time to respond.

FSRI research on fire service horizontal ventilation began in 2008, and analyzed the effect of doors and windows on a fire’s spread. Bedrooms on the first and second floors of a home were tested during the scenario. Using thermal imaging cameras, researchers found that closed-door rooms on both floors during the fire’s spread had average temperatures of less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit versus 1000+ degrees in the open-door rooms.

The Close Before You Doze public fire safety education program comes because of over a decade of research conducted by UL’s Fire Safety Research Institute (FSRI). After proving that a closed-door could potentially save lives in a fire, FSRI has committed to sharing this finding with the world.

Practice, practice, practice… Families do the drill.

Put one adult in charge of sounding the smoke alarm and running the drill. Next, sound the smoke alarm, start the timer, and have everyone book it to the safety spot. Once everyone gets to the safety spot, stop the timer. If you all made it in under two minutes, you each get an imaginary gold medal.
