October 8, 2015 – DKI, North America’s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, announced today that one of its Member Companies, J.C. Restoration, Inc. (JCR) of Rolling Meadows, Ill. successfully hosted insurance and property management professionals for seminars on fire and smoke damage during the week of September 22-25, 2015. The event raised over $5,500 for JCR’s chosen charity, the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance.

The “Smoke on the Water” Course, presented by JCR, was an Illinois Department of Insurance approved CE course, attended by over 350 industry professionals. The course explained the processes involved in fire damage mitigation and restoration, and illustrated how insurance companies, property management professionals and restoration professionals can work together to provide property owners with rapid, responsive, technically accurate procedures for loss mitigation on fire damage claims. Through class participation and hands-on demonstrations, the attendees learned that advanced techniques and technologies save downtime and money throughout the fire damage claims process. Classroom discussions also focused on the public health and safety issues associated with fire restoration situations.

The Executive Director of the IFSA, Phil Zaleski, who spoke during the week, about IFSA’s dedication to fire safety and burn prevention through public education, announced that the funds donated would support IFSA’s Camp “I Am Me.” Camp “I Am Me” is a week-long camp for children and teenagers who have experienced injuries from burns.
