Breathe Easy with Interstate Restoration at RIMS

Interstate is looking forward to seeing you at RIMS in Philadelphia next week. Be sure to come by our booth 743 in between your sessions to say hello and re-energize with our oxygen bar. We will have our dedicated team on hand to help you with any questions you may have about large loss recovery and general contracting services in your area.

In addition, this year we will again be donating to Mercy Housing – a national nonprofit working to build affordable, service-enriched housing for families, seniors and people with special needs. How does this work? With just a quick scan of your badge, a cash donation will be made on your behalf.

A few fun facts about Philadelphia…as we look forward to our trip!

  • Philly is home to many firsts including America's first zoo, hospital and medical school.
  • Philadelphia is also home to the nation’s first daily newspaper, the Philadelphia Packet and Daily Advertiser (1784).
  • About 50 tree seedlings went to the moon and back with the Apollo 14 mission in 1971, and one of these “moon trees” was planted in Philadelphia’s Washington Square Park. In 2011, when the tree was starting to deteriorate, national park officials replaced it with a clone.
  • Philly became home to the first general purpose computer in 1946…weighing in at 27 tons!
