Summer Is At Hand!

Ready Set, EEPK!

Events are one of the things we like to think we do quite well at ED. One of the reasons for this is that we always come to our events with our very own patented (well maybe not) Event Emergency Preparedness Kit or EEPK (we never claimed to be great at acronyms).

Included in our Event Emergency Preparedness Kit are items that will pretty much get you through anything that could, and usually do, could go unexpectedly wrong. Here’s what we like to have:

  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Printer (if you think you might need it)
  • Pens
  • Paper
  • Clear Paper Display Holders
  • Glue
  • Computer
  • Sharpies
  • A little imagination

With these items in tow you will be able to get through almost any emergency at your kid’s birthday, parents’ anniversary, or your Fantasy Football draft. Let us know if you think there’s something we’re missing!

 

Have YOU Started Planning Your Company Christmas Party?

We want you to start thinking about company Christmas party. It may seem a bit early but venues are filling up and entertainment is being booked. So give us a shout and we’ll take the worry off your plate and help you plan your event.

Do YOU save lives? Daniel does!

Daniel, our Project Manager at ED, is an avid blood donor. Well actually not blood, Daniel donates plasma, which allows him to donate once a week. Plasma makes up the highest portion of the body’s total blood volume and is used to transport the other blood components throughout the body. Plasma donations are used to help patients with bleeding disorders, liver diseases, operations, and cancer and bone marrow therapy.

In the plasma donation process the blood is taken into a centrifuge where the plasma is separated from the rest of the blood allowing it to be collected while the other parts of the blood are returned to the donor. This allows the donor to go weekly versus every 56 days for whole blood donations.

As of July 14th Daniel has donated 118 times and he’s scheduled to go in again this up coming Thursday to take it up to 119. We here at ED would like to challenge YOU to do your part and to donate blood at some point this summer. Maybe if you go on a Thursday afternoon you’ll see Daniel there!

The number to book your donation is 1 888 236 6283
