Park Place Monitoring Hurricane Ian for Service Disruptions
September 27, 2022
CLEVELAND, OH, Sept. 26 — Park Place Technologies is taking proactive steps to prepare clients for the landfall of Hurricane Ian.
According to the National Weather Service, Florida could start to see Ian’s impact on Tuesday, with Tampa potentially facing its first direct hurricane hit since 1921.
Ian, with winds up to 111 mph, is expected to dump 4 to 6 inches of rain on the Florida Keys; more than 8 inches of rain in west-central Florida; and 3 to 8 inches of rain on the rest of the Florida peninsula. And forecasters predict parts of Florida will see dangerous storm surges.
Park Place has set up Command Center at our Boston Operations Center located in Westboro, MA, 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 coastal 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 such as 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 Florida Panhandle/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 data center up time to ensure peace of mind of our clients.
