AccuWeather, the spring of 2012 was one of the warmest in years and it will fuel active severe weather. We all know the 2012 tornado season got off to a very fast pace from normal standards, and unfortunately it may be a prolonged year of severe weather in the United States. 

For these reasons - you need to make sure your telecom  or data center facility doesn't get left in the dark during the next storm.  

Take a look at what  Michael Donnellan of Access Northeast had to say about our emergency service at one of their data centers last year during the brunt of Hurricane Irene.

EEC's 24x7 telecom & data center power and cooling emergency repair service program is an aggressive and rapid response mechanism developed specifically for telecom and data center operations. We require all personnel to be on-call and available to handle multiple emergencies and our technicians arrive on-site with "crash kits" containing replacement parts for 90% of failures and have access to a vast parts inventory.  Our philosophy is to aggressively and rapidly respond to system failures with the right personnel and the right material to bring your systems back on-line quickly.
