BELFOR Supports Wounded Warrior Project
Team BELFOR, aka the “Ash Avengers,” raised funds for the Oregon Tough Mudder Wounded Warrier project by participating in the Tough Mudder event, an 11-mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces. Team BELFOR consisted of employees from Portland and Seaside, Oregon, Boise, Idaho, and their clients.
The Tough Mudder obstacle course is a test of strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. To date, Tough Mudder participants have raised more than $5 million to support the Wounded Warrior Project. Team BELFOR raised the most money for the Oregon Tough Mudder Wounded Warrior Project.
BELFOR Holds Boise Burnout Fundraiser
BELFOR Boise was honored to hold a fundraiser for the Boise Burnout Fund again this year. Marketing Director Andrea Bradshaw and the Boise office team hosted the popular sportsman's outing, which was attended by 60 industry professionals ranging from insurance adjusters to firemen.
The Boise Burnout was set up by Boise Firefighters Local 149 in 1965 to provide immediate informational and financial assistance to Boise families and individuals who are affected by house fires and other disasters. The annual event hosted by BELFOR raised $2,500 for the fund.
BELFOR Boise Defies Blizzard For Client
Despite impassable roads, drifted with snow as far as the eye could see, BELFOR Boise Idaho was determined to stay on schedule at a fire-damaged residential site 90 miles from Boise. They had just one more day of mitigation before the construction phase could begin. Staying on schedule would allow the owners to come home sooner, saving them and their insurance carrier additional living expenses.
General Manager Nick Bradshaw and Project Manager Jeremy Crockett saw five feet of snow fall in 24 hours, and still planned to maintain their projected timelines. They each had snowmobiles and were experienced riders so they could easily envision an off-road caravan to the job site. Jeremy contacted the insurance carrier and proposed the out-of-the-box travel arrangement in order to get permission to proceed. The insurance carrier agreed to the well-thought-out solution. Four snowmobiles would be used to carry the crew and haul the equipment and materials to the home. In all, seven 8.5 mile trips were made by each snowmobile to keep the job on schedule.
Despite five feet of snow which had fallen in 24 hours, BELFOR Boise was given a job to do and they intended to finish it as scheduled. A fire-damaged home 90 miles outside of Boise was being worked on and to delay progress on the home would mean increased living expenses for the family and the insurance carrier. BELFOR Boise made innovative arrangements to help the work continue, using snowmobiles to transport the necessary equipment and materials to the home. We are proud to say it was completed on schedule.
