Hurricane Preparation: Before the Storm September is National Preparedness Month and part of having an actionable hurricane contingency plan is preparing before a threat is ever present. If you run a business, for example, you should know exactly what your daily operations take to function – and include all those specifications in your contingency plan so responders can prioritize reconstruction and minimize your down time as much as possible.

The saying goes that it's about who you know – and this is as true in restoration and emergency response as it is in other industries; maybe more so. Our ability to provide quick, agile response all over the country is incredibly dependent on who we know.

Hospitality disaster response comes with unique challenges and, like any large-scale restoration project, requires preparation and industry familiarity. Hiring a restoration contractor who knows their way around disaster restoration and hotel renovation can mean the difference between a job that moves smoothly, and one that is fragmented and frustrating. Handling Conflicting Interests Challenges in hotel renovations often stem from the priority clash between facilities and operations...

It's not a generally recognized fact, but some of the nation's most heavily developed areas are also the most prone to natural disaster. The oil fields, ports, and chemical refineries of the Gulf Coast sit in constant danger of damage and destruction from hurricanes, flooding, and other natural disasters. Worse, large-scale catastrophies - events that cost millions of dollars in damage - seem to be a growing trend, with more and more severe weather events happening each year. The...

When almost everyone within the projected path of a storm begins to evacuate, the Operations team is putting the final touches on the plan to move into the projected path. The seven to ten days before landfall are just as stressful on a restoration Operations team as they are on the residents and businesses within the path. Before the storm, our team is securing reservations at multiple hotels in many different cities. Crew members begin packing for an unknown amount of time away from home....

As an emergency restoration firm, our clients often ask us for advice regarding water damage. What are the risks and proper protocol for handling water damage? When does the situation warrant using Interstate verses your own maintenance team? Is water damage from a flood treated differently than water from a pipe break? To provide some guidance and answers, Interstate has developed a web clinic, How To Properly Handle Water Damage. We hope this will make dealing with water damage issues a bit...

State and local authorities are asking people to plan for the worst. Craig Fugate from the Federal Emergency Management Authority told reporters on Tuesday that “...
