New York City Flood Relief Coming By Way of Texas
BEAUMONT, Texas, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — For the past 72 hours, National Pump & Compressor, a Texas-based equipment rental company, has mobilized and set up over 125 Pioneer Pumps, thousands of feet of pipe and hose, and generators and light towers at sites all over New York City in response to flooding due to Hurricane Sandy.
“We have been working non-stop since Wednesday,” NPC Vice President Michael Nix says. “We are working with environmental and industrial restoration firms as well as government disaster relief groups to dewater the New York City subway tunnels, as well as hundreds of basements all over the City. This is by far the largest disaster recovery effort we’ve made in our company’s history. We will be here as long as it takes to make sure New York City gets back on its feet.”
One of the challenges the NPC team has faced is dewatering the basements of public housing facilities in Coney Island and Far Rockaway. “The basements and boiler rooms of these public housing units need to be pumped dry in order to restore electricity. Tens of thousands of people live in these buildings and they are relying on us,” says NPC pump sales engineer Craig Johnson.
“This is an unprecedented recovery effort for us,” adds NPC President, Bill Kiker. “We are proud to be able to support this city in its time of need.”
