2019 SERVPRO First Responder Bowl to be Played December 30
The SERVPRO First Responder Bowl is set for Monday, Dec. 30.
Kickoff is set for 11:30 a.m. CT (12:30 p.m. ET) and the matchup will be on ESPN. The game is slated to be a matchup of schools from the Big 12 Conference and Conference USA.
In December of 2014, the bowl began honoring first responders including police officers, firefighters, EMS workers, correctional officers, search and rescue, dispatchers, security guards, federal agents, border patrol agents and military personnel who have specialized training and are the first to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency. In 2018, the game was renamed to reflect the efforts to show appreciation to first responders.
Schools who have competed in the First Responder Bowl include: Army West Point, Boise State, Boston College, Houston, Illinois, Louisiana Tech, North Texas, Northwestern, Oklahoma State, Penn State, Purdue, Southern Miss, Texas Tech, UNLV, Utah, Washington and West Virginia.

Chicago Prepares for Brutal Cold
With temperatures dropping to dangerous levels, it is important to take every precaution we can for our own safety and health.
The Chicagoland area will be seeing a deep freeze tonight and tomorrow, the likes of which we have not seen since the 1980's. With temperatures dropping to dangerous levels, it is important to take every precaution we can for our own safety and health.
Here are some tips to stay safe and warm the next few days:
- STAY INDOORS. Avoid the outdoors if possible. With a potential windchill of -55 F tomorrow, frostbite can occur within a matter of minutes, and hypothermia is a major risk.
- If you absolutely need to drive, make sure your vehicle is up for it. Replace your battery if it is old, and keep your fuel tank and tires filled. Also, keep your cell phone charged and have emergency contacts on hand.
- Clear out snow from your roof to prevent ice damming and shovel driveways and sidewalks before it gets too cold.
- Prevent your pipes from freezing. Check out our previous blog for more info.
