Emergency General Construction services were provided for Fitz Casino during the historic 2011 Mississippi River flood. Emergency crews were mobilized overnight to plan and assist The Fitz to ensure the hotel and casino was kept secure. Fitz had no flood emergency plan in place. Copeland and Johns, Inc. provided services that enabled the property to reopen for a 2011 Memorial Day weekend. Using the Porta-Dam system and constructing many additional measures allowed for the safety of the employees and customers to continue business as usual once the floodwaters receded. Many upgrades to the casino, hotel, and lobby area were performed during the idle time of the total facility.
