As winter looms, field crews gear up for another season of storms capable of disastrous damage to local infrastructure. For first responders, quick response times are vital to help reduce the impact of natural disasters. The term “First Responder” is usually exclusive to fire, EMS, and police personnel, but many first responders during a natural disaster or storm are field service and asset operations workers.
Construction and engineering field service workers are needed to clear debris off of roadways. Utility field service workers need to address downed power lines, gas leaks, water main breaks or drain flooded areas. All of these incidents require field service workers from multiple disciplines to fix infrastructure issues before traditional “first responders” can perform their duty of saving lives.
When disasters or storms strike, the Field Service & Asset Management solution you have in place can make or break your chances of successfully managing your response. Many organizations rely on outdated, siloed systems. Here, we’ll address the unique problems a natural disaster or storm event places on your organization, and how an integrated solution prevents both physical and financial risk to your organization.
