Chaos ensues when a region has been hit by an area wide disaster like a hurricane, earthquake, or tornado. It’s more than one home owner or business that’s impacted, it’s a community.
NorthEastern stands ready to assist in time of disaster. In the event of a catastrophic loss in an area, NorthEastern is able to provide a large amount of equipment and manpower to the site. With our trailer and box trucks, we are able to have equipment in the area without having to return to shop for more equipment. This saves time and money. Having a one stop shop that includes drying services, remediation, water mitigation, generators, dry ice blasting, electronic restoration, asset recovery systems and construction services enables us to support our clients regardless of the disaster that may occur.

Basic Steps to Prepare
• Learn about your community’s emergency plans, warning signals, evacuation routes and locations of emergency shelters.
• Identify potential home hazards and know how to secure or protect them before the hurricane strikes. Be prepared to turn off electrical power when there is standing water or a fallen power line, or before you evacuate. Turn off gas and water supplies before you evacuate. Secure structurally unstable building materials.
• Buy a fire extinguisher and make sure your family knows where to find it and how to use it.
• Locate and secure your important papers, such as insurance policies, wills, licenses, stocks, etc.
• Post emergency phone numbers at every phone.
• Inform local authorities about any special needs, i.e., elderly or bed-ridden individuals or anyone with a disability.
