When Atlantic Reno General Manager, Mike, was called late one night he didn’t know what to expect. On the other end of the phone was one of his lead line service technicians with an idea to help crew members of air ambulance flights. Lead LST Kordell Sesock came up with the idea for the RNO team to come together and to donate snacks and drinks to the air medical flight crews that are risking their own health to continue transporting patients in need of critical care.
Atlantic Aviation is dedicated to find ways to care for one another and our communities during these uncertain times. We find ourselves distanced from those we love and the elderly community in particular. It’s this community that has been isolated from social connections while we all practice social distancing. As a company we want to turn this into a positive and give back to our community by partnering with Go Rentals and donating to Meals on Wheels.
This holiday season Atlantic Aviation celebrated and embraced those that matter the most to us, our work families, our customers and our communities. All across the country we celebrated the season with decorations, parties, and events, but most importantly we celebrated by taking the opportunity to give back within our communities. We take great pride in investing in our communities, and while giving back is not just something we do during the holiday season, we do enjoy seeing the magic it brings at this special time of year.
For many in the Houston area, Tropical Storm Imelda brought back frightening memories of when Hurricane Harvey battered the Texas Gulf Coast just two years ago. Imelda was alarmingly similar. Faced with heavy rain and dangerous flooding, the Atlantic IAH team jumped into action to help those who got caught in the rapidly rising water. They opened their doors to anyone who needed it and provided warm clothes, food and shelter from the rain.
Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in women and has touched the lives of many of us at Atlantic, from our employees to our tenants and even our customers. It’s for this reason that in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month our locations across the country helped raise awareness in many different ways.
