Days on end of watching and waiting are now coming to an end for thousands of willing, capable, and determined workers in the restoration industry. The first wave has already arrived in Fort McMurray and, in the days ahead, they will start to claw back what the fire took.
There’s little public glory for these men and women because they’re in for the long haul and media attention spans are short. Working 12-hour days six days a week, away from their families and homes, they focus on a single purpose: restore what is damaged; rebuild what is destroyed. They cooperate with insurers and property owners and are skilled, well trained, and dedicated as only true professionals can be. Every resident and every business owner that sustained a loss will meet these people and will appreciate their service, commitment, and compassion.
