LRG inc and their vendor partners have started a pledge drive to directly assist electronic security personnel and their families that were severely affected by Hurricane Harvey. ABC News reported yesterday that as many as 85% of the Houston flood victims do not have flood insurance. Many were not required as they did not reside in a 100 year flood plain.
LRG President Chris Lanier stated, “Many times it is the branch inside salesperson, central station operator or field technician that get hit the hardest and they either don’t have proper insurance or have a high deductible. We’ve done WalMart gift cards in previous disasters as the very basics such as cleaning products, bottled water, children’s clothing, etc, are most in need in these early days of recovery.” Lanier added, “We greatly appreciate all the thoughts and prayers within the industry that were sent our way and we send that same hope to the East Coast with Hurricane Irma effects.”
