ARS Honors Our Very Own Veterans
At ARS/Rescue Rooter, we understand the importance of employing and honoring active and retired military personnel. Our employees who are Veterans already know the value of teamwork, communication and organization. “It is truly an honor to employ the men and women who have fought for our freedom,” says Dave Slott, ARS President and Chief Operations Officer. To honor our Veterans, the ARS Corporate Office and various branches are donating HVAC systems, organizing casserole drives, and other volunteer and fundraising activities. ARS would also like to recognize a few individuals in the field for their service, and many thanks to all of our Veterans’ service! Happy Veteran’s Day!
