US Best Repair Service Honored at 19th Annual 9-1-1 for Kids Celebrity Classic Golf Tournament Hosted by Tim Brown and Kathy Ireland at Monarch Beach Golf Links, Dana Point, CA

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) May 25, 2013

The 19th Annual 9-1-1 for Kids Celebrity Classic Golf Tournament continued their penchant for success in raising money for 9-1-1 training and education. International Chairmen Tim Brown and Worldwide Ambassador Kathy Ireland inspired, promoted and recognized 9-1-1 excellence. Community leader and general contractor US Best Repairs was honored for their Exemplary Service and Corporate Citizenship as champions of emergency preparedness and 9-1-1 public education.

US Best Repairs CEO Mark Zaverl and 3 of his employeesTung Nguyen, David Lopez and Michael Gleasonwere awarded for their commitment to reducing 9-1-1 misuse through 9-1-1 public education which teaches students how to avoid dangerous, inappropriate, or unlawful behavior when calling 9-1-1.

Almost 50% of the over 250 million yearly calls to 9-1-1 centers in the U.S. are not emergencies, which has financial consequences and can cost lives. If emergency professionals are busy responding to a prank 9-1-1 call, it could leave someone in need of real emergency care vulnerable.

9-1-1 for Kids has reached over 5 million children through awareness and education programs. American industry has a responsibility to secure the future for our children, Zaverl said while speaking after he and his team received their 9-1-1 Hero Awards.

Zaverl uses his companys national presence to spread awareness about 9-1-1 education because he understands the real effects of 9-1-1 misuse. As stated by 9-1-1 awards certificates, Many people with real emergencies have sadly been met with a busy signal because someone called 9-1-1 with non-emergency questions or issues (asking for information or directions, road conditions, animal issues, etc.).

US Best Repairs helps rebuild American neighborhoods, communities, and commercial properties by providing rehabilitation, repairs, maintenance and landscaping services nationwide. As a care-taker of American communities, I feel a responsibility to do more for those that live there, and 9-1-1 for Kids is truly an exceptional charity, Zaverl said.

It is easy to see the appeal of 9-1-1 for Kids, since it is commonly said that 9-1-1 for Kids is a charity that offends nobody and helps everybody. The logic being that even if you are not partial to children, one day a child could save your life if he or she is educated in the proper usage of 9-1-1.

Mortgage Field Services Provider U.S. Best Repair Service Teams Up with 9-1-1 for Kids Charity and NFL Legend Tim Brown at Five Star Conference in Dallas

(PRWEB) September 07, 2013

Over 250 million calls are made to 9-1-1 annually and nearly half of those calls are caused by misuse and abuseprank calls, people asking for information, duplicate calls, people asking for driving directions, and even calls for help finding a lost pet or hurt animal.

In addition to being a waste of costly resources, 9-1-1 misuse and abuse is a major safety issue as emergency lines are limited, which means crime prevention and life-saving solutions are delayed when 9-1-1 operators and first responders are busy dealing with non-emergencies. Thats why the charity 9-1-1 for Kids was created.

9-1-1 for Kids helps educate children about proper 9-1-1 usage. Former Los Angeles/Oakland Raider and future NFL Hall of Fame inductee Tim Brown is the charitys international chairman. Supermodel turned business mogul Kathy Ireland is the Worldwide Ambassador. They have been helping raise awareness through special charity events and fundraising that goes toward educational materials. For example, the charity created a video program for schools that teaches children how calling from a landline is preferred because the location of the call is automatically transmitted to 9-1-1 call centers. Accurate address information is central to coordinating emergency services quickly.

Mobile phones do not transmit location as reliably or efficiently as landlines. In the 1970s, a system was developed–known as Automatic Location Identification (ALI)–to connect landlines to a database program that would transmit addresses to 9-1-1 call centers. Mobile phones often times transmit inaccurate location or no location at all. That is why it is important to use a landline if possible.

This type of education is valuable for children and adults to know. 9-1-1 for Kids executive director Elise Kim says teaching children is the most effective way to inform families about proper 9-1-1 usage because children talk about what they learn to their parents, and they influence adults to behave safely. This protects neighborhoods, argues Kim, because proper 9-1-1 usage allows emergency resources to be directed to real emergencies, making communities safer.

Enter U.S. Best Repair Service, a leading provider of default mortgage field services and general contractor. In the mortgage industry, they specialize in repairing and protecting abandoned bank-owned homes, which attract crime and neighborhood blight if left unkempt. Their services include painting over graffiti, boarding broken windows, maintaining overgrown lawns, and securing hazards like empty pools which are unsafe for curious neighborhood children.

As an advocate for neighborhood safety and a specialist in removing community blight, CEO Mark Zaverl felt 9-1-1 for Kids was a charity that fit well with U.S. Best. Its a cause that affects literally everybody, says Zaverl, or as 9-1-1 for Kids co-founder Elise Kim likes to say, Everybody should care about 9-1-1 education because even if you dont like kids, one day a child could save your life by dialing 9-1-1 for you.

The three seemingly unconnected pioneers–Elise Kim, co-founder and director of 9-1-1 for Kids; Tim Brown, Raider football legend and future NFL Hall of Fame inductee; and Mark Zaverl, founder and CEO of a small handyman service turned national general contractorwill be attending Five Star Conference in Dallas, TX on September 8-10 at the Hilton Anatole for the mortgage servicing industrys largest gathering of its kind to raise awareness for 9-1-1 for Kids and abandoned bank-owned home protection.

Tim Brown will be available on Monday, September 9th, from 12pm to 2pm at booth #112. Media coverage is welcome. Advanced credentialing is necessary for this event. Please contact Mike Gleason for media inquiries:
