This post is primarily about something that most of our readers aren't aware of.
The Central Area Motivation Program, or CAMP for short.
Powers Chimney & Masonry, LLC, is an O.E.S. (Other Energy Services) vendor for CAMP. As a vendor in the chimney & masonry industry, we are responsible for helping service and repair heating systems, chimneys, fireplaces, etc. Additionally, we check to ensure proper carbon monoxide detectors are installed in any home we service.
These carbon monoxide detectors are important and essential to any home that has a heating source, regardless of whether it is a fireplace or furnace. Carbon monoxide is an odorless and tasteless gas, and it can affect the brain within less than a minute. The detectors Powers Chimney & Masonry, LLC installs are designed to detect high levels of carbon monoxide gas, and sound an audible alarm to alert the resident of the problem, very similar to a smoke detector.
CAMP is a service that is federally-funded, and also funded by the State of Washington and private donations. The history link on the CAMP website begins with this statement: "For over 45 years, Central Area Motivation Program (CAMP) has provided essential human services to meet the needs of Seattle’s poor." (See the information here.)
Powers Chimney & Masonry, LLC has found this work to be rewarding and fulfilling. Please, check out the CAMP website when you have a moment.
