While the PuroClean Canada team, including Chairman & CEO Mark W. Davis, Vice-Chairman Frank Torre, and President Gord Gamble waited for the fire to end its tear through Alberta, they strategically planned out how PuroClean would best use its resources. The first immediate step was to bring the 53-foot PuroClean command trailer from Detroit to the Canadian Distribution Center for stocking and preparation.
From there, the plan of attack went as followed:
While everything from the strategic plan to attack the devastation to infrastructure, to employee lodging was being coordinated, the team was also planning which insurance carriers they would reach out to and in what order. When communicating with insurance providers, the PuroClean team made sure to get favorable prices for its franchise owners while keeping the grief-stricken community in mind.
Because residents of Fort McMurray were not allowed back into their homes for three to six months, PuroClean first focused on commercial jobs. The first job the team did was for one of the city’s largest restaurants, The Wood Buffalo Brewing Company. The job was secured through Travelers Insurance. Signal Restoration Services, a leader in large loss property damage restoration and partner of PuroClean, helped guide the local franchise owners on how to handle large commercial jobs such as the one at The Wood Buffalo Brewing Company.
One of the biggest logistical challenges PuroClean Canada faced while cleaning the aftermath of the Fort McMurray fires was lodging. Habitable hotels were taken over by the local government personnel, but PuroClean needed to house its group of 125 technicians and managers. Instead of the costly option most other restoration and insurance companies chose (having staff stay at oil industry work camps), PuroClean Canada worked with friends of Edmonton North franchise owner, Carol Parsons, to house employees in 25 apartments in the least-affected part of the city. The apartments were fully furnished and supplied with food, high-speed internet, recreation equipment, and more.
