New SERVPRO First Responder Bowl to be played at Cotton Bowl Stadium

football SERVPRO First Responders Bowl December 26th

In a joint effort to honor the service and sacrifice of America’s First Responders, the annual college football bowl game played at Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas, Texas has been renamed the SERVPRO First Responder Bowl.  Kickoff for the newly christened SERVPRO First Responder Bowl is set for December 26 at 12:30 p.m. CT (1:30 p.m. ET) and will be televised by ESPN.  The agreement between ESPN Events and SERVPRO was brokered by Denver-based Impression Sports & Entertainment.

"We are truly grateful for all first responders’ sacrifice and service,” said Brant Ringler, Executive Director of the SERVPRO First Responder Bowl. “It is a tremendous privilege to honor these brave men and women who protect our communities 24/7/365. As this game continues to grow, so do our ties with first responders. Additionally, having a sponsor like SERVPRO who works along-side and supports these community heroes reinforces our goals of recognizing our first responders.”

"We are proud to present the SERVPRO First Responder Bowl dedicated to honoring some of the hardest working men and women in our country" said Sue Steen, CEO of SERVPRO Industries, Inc. "We recognize the dedication and selfless acts of our First Responders and are honored to help highlight and celebrate the commitment of these everyday heroes."

The 2018 SERVPRO First Responder Bowl is the ninth edition of the bowl game, formerly known as the Heart of Dallas Bowl, and part of the 89-year history of games being played at Cotton Bowl Stadium on the grounds of Dallas’ Fair Park, which features 227 acres of museums, attractions, history, art and performances located in the heart of the ninth largest city in the United States.

First responders to be honored include police officers, firefighters, EMS workers, correctional officers, search and rescue, dispatchers, security guards, federal agents, border patrol agents and military personnel who have specialized training and are the first to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency.

“This is an exciting change, and we are humbled by the fact that an actual bowl game has been named exclusively for the first responders of this country,” Dallas Fire-Rescue Fire Chief David Coatney said.

“We are truly honored to have a bowl game here in Dallas named after the hard working men and women serving and protecting communities across this country.  It always feels great to be recognized, and I know our officers and firefighters are touched by this overwhelming show of support, “said Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall.

Why SERVPRO? Because of the pumpkin bread!

living room with hardwood flooring on half and removed from other half Why SERVPRO? Excellent customer service equals fresh baked bread.

Why choose SERVPRO of Lawton?

Insurance agents and property managers recommend us. And so does one customer who kept our technicians supplied with fresh baked pumpkin bread.

What began as a water loss turned into three weeks of extracting water and demolition of hardwood floors.

This customer was notably distraught when our technicians first arrived. They explained the drying process thoroughly, and she became calmer and more comfortable with what our team would be doing to help make it "Like it never even happened."

By the end of day four, she started baking. Pumpkin bread. Our technicians complimented the smells from the kitchen, and that's all it took for this customer to bake for the whole team each week.

By the end of demolition, our team of professionals had the home on track to receive new flooring and return this customers life back to normal.

She thanked us profusely for our help, and we thanked her for keeping us supplied with fresh baked goods.

She said she was actually going to miss us, as she had gotten used to having us around. We assured her we would miss her more!
