October 1, 2018 Fire Code Improvements Update:
The summer is over and we have started to do many of the improvements needed for the Fire Order.
Doors have arrived - many have been installed. The new kitchen hood is well on it’s way to being done.
15 different companies have been contacted to install electrical for fire alarms and pull stations - this has been our hardest task - getting someone to commit to the fire alarm installs.
We are moving along - the latest update - you have helped raise over $164,230! This is amazing. We should have enough to do our basic fire safety but can use an additional funds to get our Creativity Barn useable by campers for next summer.
Initial Urgent Appeal - June 2018
Pearce Williams takes great pride in its long standing history of offering the most amazing summer camp experience to campers. An important part of that is our commitment to the safety and well-being of every child it welcomes.
Following a recent fire safety inspection, the camp received a set of 11 Fire Inspection Orders that must be acted upon in short order. We want to assure you that these orders do not identify any immediate threats to fire safety; however, they do require immediate attention to ensure that Pearce Williams is in compliance and can continue to offer a safe and secure place for campers of all ages into the future.
There are a number of interim measures that are being implemented as we address these orders. However, there is much work to be done that varies in both complexity and cost – from cleaning the wood-burning chimneys and ensuring a certified inspection to installing fire doors and modernizing fire escapes.
We are writing to you today because we know you believe in Pearce Williams and understand the important role it plays in the lives of all who experience it. Initial cost estimates to comply with the orders range from $155,000 to $200,000. These are well beyond the capacity of the current operating budget.
Since this appeal first went out we have raised over $164,230 and have met our minimum estimate! Way to go!
let's keep it going and get the barn back in use!
