BIG ‘THANKS’ FOR IRMA HELP

The Palm Beach Post - - IN YOUR COMMUNITY - — SARAH PE­TERS

The res­i­dents of a PGA Na­tional se­nior liv­ing com­mu­nity made a spe­cial thank you card for the staff in the wake of Hur­ri­cane Irma.

Devon­shire and Chatsworth put their pre­pared­ness plans in place to make sure the res­i­dents would have ad­e­quate staff and sup­plies dur­ing and af­ter the storm. Their strate­gies gave staff and fam­ily mem­bers the op­por­tu­nity to stay overnight so they could get to work de­spite storm dam­age.

Res­i­dent Bob Frasier said he’s grate­ful for the mea­sures they took in the dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion.

“The on­site storm prepa­ra­tions were just out­stand­ing, and ev­ery­one on cam­pus ap­pre­ci­ated the fact that they could not have been in a bet­ter place,” Frasier said.

The staff had town hall meet­ings, cub­by­hole no­tices and bulletin board post­ings to keep res­i­dents in­formed. Res­i­dents’ fam­ily mem­bers could keep tabs on them through the com­mu­ni­ties’ web­sites and Face­book pages.

Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor Jim Win­gard­ner said he was over­whelmed by the ef­forts of the peo­ple who live and work at Devon­shire and Chatsworth.

“Our in­vest­ment of time, en­ergy, and re­sources played a key role in safe­guard­ing prop­erty and lives,” he said.
