24/7 Emergency Response:
ERSI in the Community
During the summer of 2022, ERSI participated in the Benton Harbor Alley Clean Up. During this process, over 14 miles of alleyways were cleaned. Our team assisted in removing and recycling hundreds of tires, removing over 5 tons of trash inclusive of furniture, building materials, general debris, and more. Once cleared, our team helped in mowing these areas and trimming overgrown brush, as well of removing tree stumps.
From February thru May 2021, ERSI proudly delivered 11,676 boxes of food to affordable housing apartments and senior centers. During this time, over 175 tons of food were distributed to 27 different locations and communities. The areas served included Detroit, Flint, and Benton Harbor. The fresh food was unloaded and delivered door-to-door by our team who provided help to 1,296 families.
Emergency Response Services, Inc. prides itself on leaving our community in better condition than we found it. We frequently have the opportunity to live out this mission with neighborhood cleanup events. A recent chance to beautify our surroundings arose when we partnered with MHT Housing and the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit, Michigan. The construction of the Most Blessed Sacrament parish was authorized in 1905, though construction did not begin until 1913. The exterior saw completion in 1915, however the interior was not finished until 1930. By decree of Pope Pius XI, Detroit became an archdiocese in 1938, elevating the Most Blessed Sacrament
Keeping our local neighborhoods clean can be daunting work, but its everyone’s responsibility. Emergency Response Services, Inc. takes this mission to heart and frequently participates in community cleanup events. Recently, the City of Flint, Michigan did not have enough money to perform community cleanup services. A lack of funds for curbside maintenance detracted from the character of the houses and those who live in them. Overgrowth made it difficult to walk down the sidewalk due to low-hanging branches and untrimmed sidewalks. Trash littered the streets and many houses sat empty with broken windows, doors, and graffiti. Emergency Response Services, Inc. happily offered to lend a hand. With
As man’s best friend, dogs hold a special place in the hearts of ERSI’s employees. As a dedicated partner to our community, Emergency Response Services, Inc. Is always looking to give back in ways that illustrate our core values. The Detroit Dog Rescue and GivingTuesday proved to be the perfect opportunity to help a few furry friends find a home. GivingTuesday began in 2012 with the idea of encouraging people to do good. Over the years, GivingTuesday transformed to a global initiative that supports generosity to change communities and the world for the better. From time and effort to donations and offering a platform, GivingTuesday offers participants many
The novel Coronavirus, COVID-19, took everyone by surprise, including Emergency Response Services, Inc. While many businesses closed their doors to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep clients safe, healthcare facilities do not have this luxury. In an effort to support our local Warren, Michigan community, Emergency Response Services, Inc. began offering free cleaning and sanitization services to local healthcare facilities. Knowing that nurses and doctors were already overwhelmed by the demands placed upon them by the pandemic, this was simply one way for ERSI to give back to those who do so much good already. In response, four healthcare facilities took us
The Coronavirus pandemic has certainly changed the way Emergency Response Services, Inc. does business and interacts with its customers. As an essential business, we have maintained our service offerings to assist property owners when they need us most. There are several other essential job functions that our community relies on to protect, serve, and heal citizens. Doctors, nurses, police officers, and other city and county officials all work to keep society functioning, even in the face of a global shut-down. For this reason, Emergency Response Services, Inc. wanted to find a way to show our gratitude and appreciation for these professionals. As you’re likely
If there is one thing that ERSI truly has a passion for, it is helping the community. On Sunday, August 18, 2019, we had the perfect opportunity to do so with a free bike helmet giveaway. From 1 to 3 PM at the City of Oak Park offices, children and adults stopped by to pick up a complimentary bike helmet and other supplies donated by ERSI. The public safety initiative came about when Aaron Tobin, founder of E-Z Roll, approached ERSI about donating the bike helmets. The partnership proved to be the perfect fit as both E-Z Roll and ERSI
