About Us

There’s an old saying: “People do business with people.” We believe that’s true. So besides running a small business in Morton, Illinois for twenty-six years, here’s a bit about Bryan and Debi Collett, the people.

Bryan and Deb Collett, 2018

Bryan volunteers around 40 hours each month as the Team Lead of Tazewell County Emergency Management Agency’s Search and Rescue Team. He is also a lead instructor in ISARC (Illinois Search and Rescue Committee) and travels state-wide teaching the craft to others. In 2018 he was awarded the Illinois Emergency Services Managers Association’s Volunteer of the Year.
