Thanksgiving Reflections from Our Team to Yours

23 November 2020

Thanksgiving Reflections from Our Team to Yours

We have all been challenged this year. But, never have we felt closer to our family, staff, customers, and vendors. For this we can give Thanks. The Covid-19 pandemic challenged our business as it did each and every business across our great nation. But, we would like to share with you the positives that came out of this experience.

Our families, our staff, our customers, and our vendors all remind us of the blessing it is to own and operate. The support that you have all provided, and continue to provide, during one of the most troubling and challenging times in American history is nothing short of humbling. That we in our own way returned some of that support to you has us arriving this Thanksgiving season with a deeper appreciation for our relationship with you. We move forward with an extraordinary focus to ensure that the quality of our service meets your needs, expectations, and earns your continued and highly valued trust. We do this with confidence that, together, we all will make it through the unique challenges that lay ahead.

In many ways we have more to be thankful for this year than ever before. This Thanksgiving season, we continue to reflect, recognize, give thanks, and be warmed by you all. As always, we invite you to contact us anytime with ideas, questions, and/or concerns. Thank you, and sincere "Happy Thanksgiving" wishes to you all!


Now is the Time for Us to Say "Thanks" to YOU!

Thanksgiving Day is the perfect time to remind one another of the many reasons there are to be grateful. We gather on this day to be thankful for what we have, for the family we love, the friends we cherish, the success we have had, and for the blessings that will come.

Thanksgiving is more than the festivities, it gives us time to ponder the lessons that we have learned and how we can spread happiness around, to look back at all the great memories and good people who came into our lives. We appreciate you, our customers and clients, so much.

At this time of year our thoughts turn gratefully to you with warm appreciation. Our best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving.

A Guide to Contingency Planning

11 July 2019

By Sebastian Kopacz

Whether you’re in charge of a business, apartment complex, industrial plant, hospital, or any other facility, you have numerous responsibilities to ensure that things are running according to plan. Since natural disasters like hurricanes pose a constant threat to coastal areas, one such responsibility is working to minimize service downtime in the case of a power outage. In some instances, like in nuclear power plants and factories with chemical processes, the loss of cooling systems is just as significant an issue as a loss of power. Knowing the dangers posed to the smooth operation of your business, it is a wise choice to make a contingency plan in case of a power outage. 

What is a Contingency Plan?

By definition, a contingency plan is a “plan designed to take a possible future event or circumstances into account”, but what would that entail for your business? In most cases, it would mean planning for a power outage; a majority of our emergency calls are for generators, as opposed to cooling equipment. Once you make your first call to American Spot Cooling and Power Rental, one of our experts, visits your facility to assess its specifications, such as supply voltage, amp draw, and point of connection for power. We also take into account factors like critical response time, or how quickly your services would need to be restored. After all relevant details are acquired, we determine the proper capacity of the generator(s) needed to power either your entire facility, or just a critical load.

In essence, this is what a basic contingency plan consists of. Having planned out your power needs ahead of time, ASCAPR will know exactly what equipment needs to be sent out when you call us after a power outage. After a call, our disaster response team will deploy as soon as the storm clears and roads open. A basic contingency plan can save you valuable time in recovery, but you can go much further than that in preparing your business for disaster.

Paid Contingency Plans

Although it is greatly beneficial just knowing what equipment you need ahead of time, it is not guaranteed that it will be available when disaster strikes. After all, when a hurricane hits, almost every rental generator in the country is deployed to affected areas. If you can’t risk a generator shortage after a disaster, consider a paid contingency plan. It is the same as basic plan, but with one advantage: equipment is rented for the entire hurricane season at a discount, ready to go as soon as conditions allow for deployment. This way, you can rest easy knowing that generators are reserved and held for your business, and guaranteed to be available if a power outage occurs. And if renting for the entire season is too much of an expense, equipment can also be rented prior to a storm and held until it clears up completely.

To get started on your contingency plan, give American Spot Cooling and Power Rental a call, or download our Emergency Preparedness Guide.
