February is American Heart Month

Spring Break Preparation

FEBRUARY IS AMERICAN HEART MONTH

Caliber Collision is a proud supporter of the American Heart Association, and we’re gearing up company-wide to participate in the AHA Dallas Heart Walk this September.


Heart disease is America’s number one killer. About 610,000 people die of this alarmingly common condition each year, which means it’s responsible for one in every four deaths. As you look at the numbers even closer, you’ll find that heart disease affects both men and women, and is also the leading cause of death when you break down the death statistics by gender.

As the nation’s largest collision repair company, Caliber employs thousands of men and women that we care deeply about. And it’s important to us to make sure that each of our team members is aware of the dangers of heart disease, and also what they can do to help their overall heart health. By following these simple steps, you can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease.

  1. Follow your doctor’s instructions and stay on your prescribed medications.
  2. Eat a healthy diet that’s low in salt, low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol; and rich in fresh fruits and vegetables.
  3. Take a brisk 10-minute walk, 3 times a day, 5 days a week.
  4. Don’t smoke. If you do smoke, quit as soon as possible. Visit www.cdc.gov/tobacco andwww.smokefree.gov for tips on quitting.

Heart disease has the potential to affect all of us. Which is why at Caliber, we’ve made the decision to take a stand against this deadly disease and raise awareness for our team members, their families, and the American people as a whole. Our entire company will participate as a team in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk in Dallas in September of this year. Our hope is that in some small way, we can help the people close to us live longer, healthier lives.

SPRING BREAK PREPARATION

With Spring just around the corner, now’s the time to make sure your vehicle is prepared to take that Spring Break road trip of a lifetime.

Taking a road trip is always an adventure. All it takes is a little pre-trip preparation to ensure that it’s an adventure you arrive to and return from safely. Let’s take a look at a few simple things you can do to make sure your trip goes as planned.


First, make sure you have a first aid kit, blankets, water and some snacks in the car. On a long trip across the country, you never know what can happen, and it’s best to be prepared for a short stay in the car should you encounter bad weather or become stranded on a lonely stretch of road. It’s also a good idea to bring along some basic tools like a screwdriver, wrenches, a multi-tool and a flashlight. It’s also a good idea to carry flares, extra oil and some extra fuses.

Second, plan your route. Many cars these days are equipped with GPS and navigational systems. But it’s still a good idea to take a look at a map before you leave so that you’re somewhat familiar with your route before you go. It’s also helpful in the event that your GPS stops working, or if you need to take a detour along the way.

Next, change the oil and top off wiper fluid and coolant and have your mechanic take a look at brake and power steering fluid as well. These things should be done every three to five thousand miles anyway, especially prior to a long trip where you’ll be spending lots of time in your vehicle.

Finally, before your trip is a good time to read your owner’s manual for the first time. Knowing the ins and outs of the way your vehicle works before you go helps you understand how to quickly deal with any issues that arise while you’re on the road. For a complete list of vehicle trouble-shooting tips and insight on how to spot the early signs of a problem with your vehicle, click here.

Spending a little extra time to plan and prepare does take a bit of effort, but it will be well worth it when you arrive at your Spring Break destination safely and as scheduled. Oh, and one more tip. Don’t forget the sunscreen.

At Caliber Collision, the safety and health of our customers and teammates is our highest priority. We will continue to follow the guidance of the CDC and local public health officials as we adjust our business practices in order to address current challenges.

First, we want you to know that we are taking the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic seriously. Restoring the Rhythm of Your Life® means that we are taking extra preventative measures to protect our customers, teammates and everyone who enters our centers to keep them safe and healthy.

Each one of us is our own best defense against this virus.

Additionally, below are a few of the steps that we are taking:

  • Centers are cleaned and disinfected twice daily.
  • Our teammates will respect your space and will warmly greet you without a handshake. We will allow for adequate space between our teammates and customers (3-6 feet) during in-person interactions.
  • We ask that all customers remove all personal items from vehicles at drop-off.
  • We will provide digital paperwork if you prefer.
  • Customer vehicles are disinfected after all repairs are completed.
  • Our teammates are dedicated to hand washing between personal interactions and as many times as possible throughout the day. We encourage our customers to join us with frequent hand washing and the use of hand sanitizers.
  • If you become sick, please visit our centers at a future date, stay home and seek advice from your health care provider.

Thank you for your business and support.
