UPDATE 10-11-2018, 5:15 p.m. ET:
Your Discount Tire Family is here to support you. As of this update, all our people are safe. Our first priority is the safety of our people and their families. More details will be added to this page as we get them.
Recent report from our Florida Region leadership:
Damages to stores have been minimal, but the power outage and downed trees continue to be problems in Tallahassee. Customers in the area are very grateful we are open, as there are many tires needing repairs due to debris. We continue to look out for our customers and each other; thank you all for your support. We do this together.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
I WANT TO ASSIST THOSE WITH AN IMMEDIATE NEED DUE TO THE STORM:
- Consider making an additional contribution to the Bruce T. Halle Assistance Fund (BTHAF); one of the reasons for this fund is specifically to take care of our own in times of crisis, such as natural disasters.
- There are other organizations on the ground ready to help all the people in the affected areas that will also appreciate assistance, such as:
- The American Red Cross
- National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD)
National VOAD members respond to disasters across the country. They foster more effective delivery of services to communities affected by disaster by promoting cooperation, communication, coordination and collaboration among over 50 of the country’s most reputable national organizations (faith-based, community-based and other non-governmental organizations) and hundreds of other state, territory, regional, and local member organizations throughout the country.
IF I HAVE BEEN IMPACTED BY THE STORM, HOW CAN I GET HELP?
- First, if you can, reach out to your Store Manager, AVP or Regional VP to let them know your situation.
- FEMA and other government support:
- For emotional support and/or legal help in these trying times, consider using the services offered by our Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The EAP is free to you and your family.
- If you have any other benefits related questions, contact the Benefits Team at the Corporate Office: 800-347-4348 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
