Los Angeles CA (PRWEB) December 10, 2007
Riverside County Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) has awarded their storage solution contract to McMurray Stern, the exclusive Spacesaver area contractor for the greater Los Angeles, Riverside, Orange County and Central Coast areas.
The Riverside County DPSS records center was nearing maximum capacity. McMurray Stern in partnership with G/M Business Interiors, provided a storage solution which would replace the existing stationary shelving on the first floor of the facility with eighteen (18) modules of high-density mobile shelving. This new Spacesaver Eclipse(TM) powered solution allowed more than 500,000 linear filing inches of records from multiple floors to be consolidated to the first floor, streamlining the file retrieval process.
The Eclipse(TM) powered system uses menu-based configurability which makes it easier for users to build the system they need by selecting features and options on an ‘a la carte’ basis, Additional safety and programmable features can be added to the powered system in the future, allowing it to evolve with business needs.
“This is an immense project. The Department Of Public Social Services required an experienced company who had implemented projects similar in size and scope.” said Matt Denburg, President of McMurray Stern. “By installing compact shelving, additional capacity was provided for DPSS, thus extending the life of their facility.”
The Department of Public Social Services contributes to the safety and security of thousands of abused and neglected children and adults by serving as the county’s child and adult protective services agency. Foster care, kinship care, In-Home Supportive Services, and adoption services are just a few of the programs available that provide protection for young and old alike. The county’s award winning Curtailing Abuse Related to the Elderly (CARE) program provides education and outreach for the community to assist in the prevention of financial abuse and consumer fraud.

They’re giving each other a conversation and a promise. And best of all, it’s free.
With Devin on the verge of getting his learner’s permit, Ms. Williams and her son are signing an Allstate Parent-Teen Driving Contract before he gets behind the wheel. Based on conversations they had at home, their contract lays out expectations for smart driving decisions, and consequences if those expectations are not met.
It’s a conversation Ms. Williams and Allstate hope all parents and their teens have this holiday season.
“As a mother of two older daughters, I’ve given them the car keys and worried whether they would make it home safe. The fact is that our teens are more likely to die in a car crash than from anything else, so having the safe driving talk with your teen is just as important as talking about drugs and sex,” Williams said. “As the holidays arrive, parents and teens should use the Allstate Parent-Teen Driving Contract as way to begin a conversation that can be a gift of life.”
Vanessa and Devin signed their contract in New York City today, publicly launching Allstate’s national Home for the Holidays teen safe driving campaign.
Through its national Parent-Teen Driving Contract Sign Up Drive, Allstate encourages parents and teens to begin a conversation with their teens about safe driving by completing the interactive contract online at http://www.allstate.com/teen. By completing and signing a contract, parents can help ensure their teens return home safely for the holidays and every day.
With car crashes the leading cause of death for American teens, it’s a vital conversation for parents and teens especially this time of year. Teens have an increased chance of getting into an accident around the holidays. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, last December alone, nearly 400 teens died in car crashes across the United States. Many of these crashes could have been avoided with a simple conversation at home.
“By putting the contract in as many parent’s hands as possible, we hope to inspire them to give their teen the most important gift of all the safe driving talk,” said Vicky Dinges, Assistant Vice President of Public Social Responsibility for Allstate. “Signing the Allstate Parent-Teen Driving Contract is the first step to making a commitment between parents and teens that they aren’t going to let themselves become a statistic.”
As part of the campaign, Allstate is also conducting contract signings with other prominent parents and their teens in cities across the country, hoping that more parents and teens heed this important call. This is part of Allstate’s tradition of public advocacy aimed at reducing the number of teens killed on America’s roads each year.
“As a company dedicated to reinventing protection and retirement for American families, doing whatever we can to avert the tragedy of losing a child is something we must take on,” Dinges said.
