As we officially move into the fall season, many people are thinking about the approaching drop in temperatures. But many more changes are underway, though some are more expected than others. Natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes can result in power disruption, structural damage, property loss, and more. To combat these issues, government agencies have banded together in support of National Preparedness Month each September. The campaign works to boost awareness of common (and uncommon) disasters and how people can prepare themselves.
But natural disasters aren’t the only emergencies we all must prepare for. Every day, we read reports of equipment failures, warehouse accidents, and other industrial crises. To avert these dangers, American Crane’s Service division works to ensure that equipment is working at its peak. Our technical staff is trained and experienced in evaluating equipment to ensure that it is safe, while identifying any weaknesses or OSHA violations. We then provide a detailed proposal and cost estimate, and work with our customers to complete necessary upgrades and rebuilds. In this way, we help our customers to avoid the worst-case-scenario.
In addition, American Crane is experienced in assisting customers with specific needs, such as planned and unplanned nuclear power plant outage support. We also provide necessary outage support for other industries, including fossil power plants, chemical processing plants, Department of Energy sites, etc.
At American Crane, we work with some of the most recognizable brands in some of the most unpredictable industries. As such, we make it a priority to ensure that our customers are aware of any potential problems that may arise, and are prepared in the case of emergency. Of course, our most important objective is making sure those emergencies never happen, if they’re preventable.
