Key Tactics Help Northeast Businesses Mitigate Hurricane Impacts

Interstate Restoration Offers 'Seven Days of Prep' for Hurricane, Tropical Storm Season

FT. WORTH, TX--(Marketwired - Jul 11, 2016) - As five Northeastern states observe Hurricane Awareness and Preparedness Week in July, experts at Interstate Restoration say businesses need to understand the risks and have emergency plans for these huge storms to stem losses and minimize recovery time. Preparation in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine can be a seven-day project, with emphasis on emergency supplies and understanding risks.

"Business owners always hope to avoid losses, and certainly hurricanes and tropical storms pose a significant threat to coastal areas of the U.S.," said Stacy Mazur, CEO of Interstate Restoration. "Should the worst happen, Interstate's experts are ready to assist with recovery in every way, as we've done after numerous disasters over the past several years."

An example of the company's response to catastrophic storms includes management of more than 440 projects during Hurricane Katrina. More of the company's restoration and reconstruction work after water damage can be seen at Executive Plaza, an office building in Houston, Texas.

Interstate Restoration's disaster recovery and restoration services are designed to help businesses mitigate damage and get critical operations quickly back online. The company offers its clients advice about the most effective ways to prepare for and respond to natural disasters, and Interstate also wants businesses to know about resources available from the National Weather Service to help prepare for severe weather regardless of the season.

Interstate Restoration, headquartered in Ft. Worth, Texas, earlier this year acquired FirstOnSite of Canada to become the second-largest independent company in its industry in North America.
