Park Place to Deploy Help to Areas Impacted by Hurricane Laura

August 28, 2020


Support During Hurricane Laura

Park Place Technologies is taking proactive steps to prepare clients for the aftermath of Hurricane Laura. Hurricane Laura made landfall as a Category 4 storm, but it has since weakened to a Category 2. Further weakening will continue, and Laura will likely become a tropical storm as it tracks from Louisiana into Arkansas. Widescale power outages and inaccessible roads are being reported.

Laura could impact 450 miles of coastline, from Texas to Mississippi.

“Power outages will last weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months,” the weather service reported.

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.

For further information on service in any impacted areas, please call 800-343-4654.
