Park Place to Deploy Help to Areas Impacted by Hurricane Zeta

Alert: Support During Hurricane Zeta

Park Place Technologies is taking proactive steps to prepare clients for Hurricane Zeta, which is tracking toward the Gulf Coast, with 90-mph sustained winds. AccuWeather meteorologists reported Zeta could reach Category 2 force as it nears the Gulf Coast. Hurricane-force winds extended out from the Zeta’s center about 35 miles and tropical-storm-force winds reached 150 miles out.

When Zeta reaches shore, it will be the fifth named storm to hit the Louisiana coast this hurricane season, and the 11th to strike the country as a whole – a national record.

In addition to New Orleans, hurricane warnings are effect along the Gulf Coast from central Louisiana eastward to the Mississippi-Alabama border and tropical storm watches have been issued northward through Atlanta.

“We anticipate a slight loss of wind intensity shortly before landfall, but we still expect Zeta to be a Category 1 hurricane at the time of landfall late Wednesday afternoon,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Adam Douty said.

Park Place has set up a Command Center in Marlboro, Mass., that is ready to deploy whatever resources clients need. Clients will have immediate access to our supply chain, tech support, field team and suppliers. Our entire Gulf Coast region field team is on “high alert” and will be ready to deploy in the areas most impacted. Park Place has been reaching out to critical end-users like hospitals to ensure they are ready to engage us if they are hit hard.

Park Place has identified customers who could be impacted and have moved additional material into the potential landing zone. Field Engineers are planning for the worst and hoping for the best.  We are also putting our complete Gulf Coast staff on high alert making sure they are ready to deploy.

By preparing for potential weather-related interruptions of service, Park Place is proactively investing in the uptime and peace of mind of our clients.
