Weston has been shoring up levees across the midwest and southwest since 2010. Every year, flood flows, erosion, and natural wildlife in rivers threaten levee...
When the lights went out across Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria—the largest blackout in the history of the US—Weston was on site in 2 days to start up two generators to supply temporary power and help stabilize the electrical grid system at the Palo Seco power plant near San Juan. In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, we mobilized to assess damage and restore multiple National Park Service sites. And in response to the most deadly and destructive wildfire in California and Oregon history, we responded quickly to assess and remove hazardous waste.
An ever-increasing frequency and severity of natural disasters means rapid response times, capacity, effective data management, and experience are more critical than ever. This is not the time for on-the-job training. By design, these capabilities are in Weston’s DNA, with existing delivery platforms crossing service lines and market sectors company wide.
More than 50% of our staff have been trained in emergency response. Our employees are ICS trained and capable of donning Level A-D PPE. We have the infrastructure and processes in place to expedite decisions and approvals to mobilize nationwide. We can scale up personnel within minutes and are prepared to respond across service lines and market sectors.
