Water, water everywhere…
This past June, Evanston was hit with a very bad storm, called a “microburst.” The intensity of the storm was so severe that part of the roof of the parking garage at Evanston Hospital was ripped off.
There was also severe flooding at Rimland’s Developmental Training headquarters, and the building was closed for a week.
We performed safety inspections and began repairs as quickly as possible, while clients were kept at home for their safety. We took all precautions to protect our clients’ health and safety by assuring that the environment is free from mold and other dangers.
While it was an inconvenience, this was necessary to protect clients because they aren’t always able to communicate distress from environmental allergies. etc. All interior walls are being replaced. Despite these issues, we turned it into a positive situation for clients and made sure they were able to enjoy various summer activities in the meantime, such as going beaches, parks, etc.
