A Carter Hero – Jordan Haulk

The story below was brought to our attention via Facebook. An employee of ours, “in a Carter t-shirt” stopped to assist with a fire at a nursing home in Alexandria. Below is the original post that began our search for the employee.

“On August 31st, the Alexandria fire department was dispatched to a commercial structure fire at the Alexandria Care Center nursing home. On arrival black smoke was emitting from the building and evacuation was in progress. The fire was quickly located and extinguished, but smoke conditions remained in the building. All patients were evacuated and moved to nearby nursing homes in Anderson and Gas City. Thank you to the Alexandria Police Dept., Alexandria School Corp. special thanks to Troy Greer Jimmy Humphrey and Scott Sent. Also thanks to off duty, Richland Township Fire, Summitville Fire, Frankton Ambulance, Physicians Ambulance, Seals Ambulance, AMR Ambulance and Alexandria Care Center Staff. Patients were transported without incident and all arrived safe at the receiving facilities. Also, thank you to the gentleman with a Carter Express shirt who stopped to help move and lift patients. Very well done to all.” – Alexandria Fire Department, Facebook Post

Jordan Haulk, Trailer Tech for Carter Maintenance, was on his way home from his second-shift shift when he saw the fire and stopped to offer help.  From 1AM to 4AM, Jordan helped relocate residents of the nursing home into ambulances so they could be taken to a safe location.  Great job, Jordan!  We’re proud to call you apart of the Carter Family.

This just goes to show … Not all heroes wear capes, some wear Carter T-shirts.

Summer of Giving Wrap Up Party

On Friday, September 15th, we wrapped up our Summer of Giving with an event at the Anderson Crossdock! Employees were invited to partake in an ice cream social, free cholesterol screenings via Community Hospital Anderson, a hula hoop contest, prizes, and MORE!

How do you wrap up a Summer of Giving event, without giving more?! You don’t! During the event, our employees banded together to raise money for Hurricane Relief Victims. Employees made donations and our Executive Staff agreed to take pies in the face to drive up donations. Together, we raised $1,173.18!! Carter is matching those donations for a grand total of $2346.36 to go toward Hurricane Relief.

This Summer of Giving has been one for the books! Stay tuned as we FALL into our Community with our Chili Cook-Off and Toys for Tots event this Winter!

  • – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine each year.
  • – Only injectable flu vaccines are recommended for use for the 2017-2018 flu season.
  • – All vaccines will protect against both Type A strains of influenza (H1N1 and H3N2) and a Type B strain. Both trivalent (three component) and quadrivalent (four component) flu vaccines will be available during the 2017-2018 flu season. The quadrivalent vaccines will also protect against the additional Type B strain.
  • – Getting a flu vaccine will not make you sick, but you may have minor side effects that mirror flu symptoms, lasting one to two days.

Driving Safety Tips: Deer Season

Attention Drivers,

               Once again, deer season is almost upon us.  Please use these tips and to ensure your safety.

  • BE AWARE – Deer may unexpectedly cross the roadway in your path of travel
  • DON’T SWERVE – It is company policy to hit the deer square on. Swerving to avoid the deer could prove to be very detrimental. The tractor-trailer could roll over and cause serious injury, expensive cargo claims, serious equipment damage and possible loss of life!
  • STAY ALERT – Remember, keep your eyes moving and be ready for anything. This is the best way to minimize the risk of a deer strike.

As always, stay safe.
