May 17, 2018: At a special event today honoring the City of Dallas Police Department, and their 9-1-1 dispatch center, PSGI/P.S.Gerry, Inc. was recognized as a large donor of furnishings offered to the special project known as their decompression room. Furnishings were provided by PSGI/P.S. Gerry, Inc. vendors: Venue Industries (Tampa, Fla), Concertex Textiles, and Peter Pepper Products. Additional new furnishings were also donated by Allied Interiors of Dallas.
John Forest, RID, and USGBC member, tirelessly orchestrated this project. The project evolved from a long time ‘dream request’ by police officers on long duty hours, to have a quiet place to rest, or wind down after traumatic events. Thanks to some financial donations, and long hours of labor provided by the Rotary Club of Dallas, and city employees, the “Safer Dallas/Better Dallas” project came to fruition.
