First Responder Bowl

Football for a Cause

SERVPRO of East Dallas was proud to be a part of the First Responder Bowl game that took place on December 30th, 2019, at the SMU Stadium in Dallas, Texas. This is the 3rd year that SERVPRO has partnered with ESPN for this special event.  This event is so much more than a football game.  The SERVPRO First Responder Bowl recognizes our friends and neighbors across our communities who protect and serve on the front line.  

Serving Those Who Serve

This is just one example of how important the community, especially those that risk their lives daily to protect, is to our franchise.  We are looking forward to increasing our involvement in serving the local fire departments and police departments in our territory over the next year.  

We Are Growing

Packed and Wrapped Furniture Packed up and heading to the warehouse for storage until reconstruction is complete.

SERVPRO of East Dallas continues to expand!  We are available and ready 24 hours a day for all water and fire needs but happy to add another service to offer our customers.  While our goal is  to try to save structures and floors after water or fire damage, extensive loss occasionally requires removal of floors, cabinets, or other structures.  While demolition and restoration are taking place, we have you covered!

We recently doubled our warehouse space. This allows us to offer full service pack-out, move back and temporary storage to customers that require reconstruction after experiencing a fire/water loss.  Our crew will handle your furniture and belongings with care and keep them in a temperature controlled environment until ready to be moved back in.

Being in the restoration industry, SERVPRO of East Dallas is on site at all types of losses. Especially when dealing with a fire or storm loss, we frequently encounter the men and women who serve our community as first responders. 

When crisis strikes, our police departments, fire departments, and EMS crews answer the call. Our military defends us and our freedom. These men and women are true heroes, and we can never express enough gratitude for what they sacrifice for us.

As a means to honor them and their families, SERVPRO is the title sponsor of the SERVPRO First Responder Bowl, the college bowl game that honors our first responders.

This year, the game is set for Monday, December 30th. For the first time, the game will be played at SMU’s Gerald J. Ford Stadium in Dallas, Texas. Kickoff is set for 11:30 am, and will air on ESPN. The game is slated to be a matchup of schools from the Big 12 Conference and Conference USA.
