It's that time again, what every kid in Johnstown waits for all year, the 2016 Ameriserv Johnstown Halloween Parade!
The 48th Annual Halloween Parade is filled with fun floats, scary costumes, haunted high school bands, and any other Halloween theme you can think of. It's estimated around thirty thousand people line the half mile parade route in downtown Johnstown to watch the 140 or more participating sponsors. It's a great way to spend an evening with your family for sure!
SERVPRO of Indiana County was there once again to hand out candy to all of the kids and some kids at heart for the night. We also showed off 3 of our company vehicles and some of our equipment in the process. We are happy to help out our community to put on events such as this for years to come.

Smoke Alarms Save Lives
According to the US Fire Administration an estimated 890 lives could be saved each year if all homes had working smoke alarms.
- more than 1/3 (38%) of home fire deaths result from fires in which no smoke alarms are present.
- 3 out of 5 home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms.
- The risk of dying in a home fire is cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms.
- Half of home fire deaths happen between 11pm and 7am when most people are asleep.
- Home fire death rates in homes with working smoke alarms have decreased by 51%
The American Red Cross and its partners have launched an initiative that aims to reduce deaths and injuries caused by home fires by 25% in five years with the Home Fire Campaign. The American Red Cross goes door to door to install working smoke alarms in homes that do not have them and praticing fire drills with families so they will know what to do incase of a fire.
Members of SERVPRO of Indiana County teamed up with the American Red Cross of Southwestern Pa, and countless other volunteers, to canvas areas of Dale and Johnstown Pennsylvania offering to install smoke detectors and help residents develop a home fire escape plan. 300 free smoke alarms were installed in the 387 homes that were visited.
