Storm 2018 Freeze
If I had to sum up my first storm experience in two words, the words that come to mind first are fast and furious. That is exactly how I would describe it. With this being my first year with SERVPRO and my first storm experience, I’ll admit, it was a little overwhelming at first. It is easy to get overwhelmed in a situation where you are getting so many jobs in such a small window. If it would not have been for my training and for the advice handed down to me by those who had been through it before, I would have been in way over my head. Personally, I believe, without a doubt, that a person learns best when that person does not have a choice but to learn. The training videos do help, but videos can not prepare you for the speedy, nonstop process of a storm. You learn to organize and plan better, because you simply do not have a choice. My first storm experience hit me unexpectedly and was full speed ahead, and for that, I am grateful, because it made me understand how important teamwork actually is. I look forward to learning and growing in areas where we, as a company, can improve to better prepare ourself for the next storm.
