City Funds MedHab's Temporary Home

San Angelo Development Corporation's February board packet provided news regarding last month's fire at MedHab's offices at 2009 West Beauregard.

On January 31, 2015 the building caught fire and significant damage was caused to the roof trusses along with smoke and soot damage. The cause of the fire is still under investigation and insurance companies from both parties are involved with determining amount of loss, damage, and engineering cost estimates for repair. MedHab needs to continue to operate and has patiently attempted to conduct operations from a very small warehouse. 

San Angelo police responded to a tripped burglar alarm at MedHab's offices, only to find a fire.  There have been no reports as to what tripped the alarm or started the fire.  

The City will pay $250 a month for MedHab to operate out of an office in the West Texas Training Center.

The West Texas Training Center (WTTC) has been gracious to offer available space to assist COSADC and MedHab during this time of need for a temporary relocation. The offer includes approximately 2000 square feet, an additional office with all maintenance services, security monitoring, internet, phone and general repairs.

The fire did not make the news section of RPM2's website.  I took the liberty of suggesting an updated web page for MedHab in the picture above.
