IDA Disaster Assistance Fund, organized by Lori Cummings

This year on Giving Tuesday, we invite you to donate to IDA's Disaster Assistance Fund to help those affected by extreme weather events in 2020.

Inspired by IDA Member A Door-Works in Lake Charles, Louisiana (pictured below), who experienced devastating loss after Hurricane Laura earlier this year, IDA will be donating all funds to the American Red Cross for aid with food, shelter and anything else these families and businesses need.

Thank you in advance for your support! https://bit.ly/2UBCjAX

Each year, the United States is faced with a number of natural disasters including hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, tornadoes and more. Most recently, members of our community in the door and access system industry have experienced severe loss due to a number of hurricanes this summer and fall.
.
.
.
The above picture was one of many sent to IDA from dealer member A Door-Works in Lake Charles, Louisiana, after their office and warehouse were damaged from Hurricane Laura. This motivated IDA to consider how the organization can give back to people in need.
.
.
.
Starting now through the end of the year, IDA is accepting donations through GoFundMe, earmarked for humanitarian aid to help those affected by extreme weather events. All proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross in order to provide basic necessities and housing to those affected by the hurricanes. We are also looking for options to donate specifically to members of our community in the future.

If you’re like most door dealers, you want calls from new customers, but you don’t want to break the bank to target a widespread, broad audience. BUT, what if you could drop digital business cards to every target customer, and it only cost you a penny each time it was shown on their phone or computer?

Remember - Watch Your Fingers!

Every year, many homeowners injure their fingers by placing them between the door sections to pull down on the door. If your door lacks pinch-resistant joints, you should have lift handles or suitable gripping points on the inside and outside of the door. Even if your door has an opener, the door may occasionally need to be operated manually. Never place your fingers between the door sections. If you manually open or close the door, use the handles or the safe gripping points. #GargeDoorSafety

It's the last week of Garage Door Safety Month!

Remember - Only hire qualified technicians. Get references from friends and neighbors, and ask about certifications that technicians have from the International Door Education Institute (IDEA) to verify they have experience and have been properly trained to work on door systems. Also, make sure the company is properly licensed with the local contractor’s board, and insured. Checking with IDA to ensure the company is a member will assure you that they are a reputable company and have the proper licenses and insurance.
