If you have ever evacuated for a hurricane you know how stressful it can be. Gathering clothes, required medications and essentials, packing up the kids and pets into the car and then sitting in traffic for 12 hours to make a 4-hour trip as you try to get as far away from the impact zone as possible. Now, imagine doing all of that, but instead of kids and pets, you are trying to evacuate elderly, sick people.
With the storm activity in the Gulf of Mexico increasing while we approach the thick of Hurricane season, we wanted to give you, your family and your company a guide on to be prepared in all aspects for an approaching storm. Preparedness is essential for dealing with the challenges of hurricane season, and it will help you and your loved ones keep peace of mind. Here’s a rundown of what you can do to remain safe and prepared before a storm is in the Gulf when it’s approaching, and during it.
From October 16-18, this year’s Permian Basin International Oil Show, Inc. will bring together people from every phase of the petroleum industry.

On February 7th, 2017, at least seven tornadoes touched down in Louisiana. The band of storms caused major damage prompting Governor John Bel Edwards to declare a state of emergency and urge residents to take shelter. But while most were seeking shelter, our team was jumping into action to deploy eight 2-megawatt generators to Felixville, LA to keep a pipeline booster station operational.
Recently, we have had multiple calls from clients asking for help regarding an NFPA 110 220.127.116.11 violation. Generator installations for mission-critical facilities, such as hospitals, nursing homes, and data centers, are required to comply with NFPA 110: Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems, in conjunction with NFPA 70: National Electrical Code.
