2021, Quarter 3

Preparedness is key and RENU has the keys to its generator trucks, ready to power up equipment and even entire buildings when disaster strikes. One of the major issues contributing to increased flooding and damage is that once the power goes out, important systems designed to effectively remove water, such as pumps, go out with it. Lack of power can put severe limitations on the ability to remove water within the structure and subsequently increases the level of damage and cost of repair. 

Hurricane Ida left unprecedented amounts of flooding in Mamaroneck School District leaving three school buildings with substantial water damage. Two of RENU’s generator trucks were brought on-site and used to power up two elementary schools for approximately one week, providing electricity so crews could operate equipment and pump water out. The generator trucks were manned 24 hours a day for about a week to provide non-stop mitigation services. After water extraction was complete RENU’s team was able to remove all wet contents and materials and began drying out the impacted area. Mold prevention was essential and time-sensitive. When large areas like this are affected by power outages, restoration of power and consequently use of proper equipment can take days if not weeks. This can mean minimal to no access to a building. Securing access at the onset with RENU’s generator trucks made it possible to enter safely, assess the damage, and create a plan. Action and execution took place immediately to reconstruct classrooms, hallways, and gymnasiums at several locations. Having mobile generators on-site early made it possible to have the Mamaroneck schools back up and operating for the start of the school year which was only weeks away.

After decades of responding to fire and flood emergencies, RENU Contracting Restoration has perfected its initial response. The early stages are critical in the timeline to reduce damage, manage costs, and reopen structures quickly. Access to reliable power and having that power source be mobile is extremely important. RENU’s generator trucks are on location promptly and can help start the mitigation process immediately ensuring access to damaged areas. A power source for pumps and equipment is beyond essential for an optimal response. 

Power means rapid removal of water from the impacted area, the ability to run dehumidifiers, and lighting to work throughout the day and night and in basement areas. It provides a reliable base to run the operation. This guarantees that RENU’s professionals can remain onsite to conduct a coordinated response. Generator trucks are not just a luxury in emergency response, they are a necessity.
