The LED sign served an important function leading up to Hurricane Sandy and in the aftermath. We were able to use it to alert the public to any number of critical pieces of information and because we did not lose electricity on a wide scale basis, the sign was able to display that information throughout most of it. Right now we are using it to announce less critical information, like trash pick-up schedules that have been changed, etc... and this "follow-up" info is a necessary part of helping the community get back into the swing of things. All in all, the sign held up very well and it was part of our overall public information effort... so that was a good thing... a sturdy piece of equipment indeed.
The City of Bridgeton made out well, I appreciate you checking in on us. The eye of the storm passed right over us and while we had some damage, it was minor compared to Atlantic City... and we came through in pretty good shape. Unfortunately, our neighbors to the east and south did not fare as well and they will have a lot of work ahead of them. Hopefully we can assist them as they get themselves back up and running. It was quite an amazing thing, the sheer size of the storm and the intensity, we were basically on lock-down mode for about three days here, so it's good to get back to some normalcy.
Anyway, I hope all is well by you and your family in the Sunshine State. Right about now, Florida is looking mighty good. Thanks again for your concern and interest. All the best to you and your colleagues at Stewart Signs.
Take care and be well.
