ARS Rescue Rooter employees cooked meals for Nashville residents whose homes had been flooded.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - In early May, Nashville residents encountered epic flooding that killed nearly two dozen people, with damages to the area estimated in the billions. ARS/Rescue Rooter, a national service company with offices across the United States, was determined to help out in any way it could.

First, ARS/Rescue Rooter employees hit the streets of Nashville and cooked meals for residents whose homes had received significant flooding and were in need of immediate assistance. In some cases, the service center employees even beat the Red Cross and emergency management support services.

ARS/Rescue Rooter also distributed important information homeowners would need about restoring their air conditioning units and home appliances to working order after the disaster.

“What happened in Nashville was terrible, and it’s going to take a lot of support and hard work to get Music City back in order,” said Nashville general manager Brad Hone. “Every little bit helps, and we will continue to pitch in to aid Nashville residents during their time of need.”
