Fall has arrived and Paul Davis is helping worthy causes across North America by volunteering our people, equipment, time and expertise. Our employees gave back to a diverse range of charitable causes recently to support the communities in which they live and work.
Crisis Support Center: Paul Davis of Simcoe County, Ontario and the Red Cross quickly took action this past July when devastation caused by a tornado, with winds exceeding 200 kph, affected over 100 homes in Ontario, Canada. In collaboration with the Red Cross, the Paul Davis tent became part of the crisis support center where victims were able to seek shelter and speak with a counsellor.

This office also participated in the Center Point Fire District annual charity golf tournament in memory of a local firefighter and paramedic.

Climbing Stairs in Memory: Paul Davis of Southwest Missouri participated in the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb to honour and remember the New York City firefighters who died on September 11, 2001. Each participant paid tribute by climbing the equivalent of 110 stories, the number of floors originally in the World Trade Center.
