Did SANDY affect FRC?

November 1st, 2012

FRC is located well inland and did not sustain any damage due to the recent storm. We did lose electric and phones for two days but we are up and running and have scheduled overtime *to ensure that deliveries are not impacted*. We appreciate all the good wishes!

Power was restored to FRC late on Oct 31st. Some internal computer systems suffered damage but those have been replaced and operations were in full swing by 1pm Nov 1st. Some employees are still without power in their homes or without telephone service and gas lines have been a hassle. Our main phone lines were out (including our fax line) for another day or two though we were able to operate on backup lines during that time.

I was there to visit you guys last Wednesday and can’t believe how much can change in a week. I’m hoping things continue to improve but if there is anything we at LADD can do to help you out please let us know. My brother lives half hour away and several houses on his street were completely destroyed by falling trees; I’m hoping none of you experienced anything that bad. I live in MA and lost power for 3 days but that’s nothing compared to what you guys are going through. Again, let me know if there is anything I can do to help out.

FRC was not seriously damaged by Sandy at all, short of losing power and phones for a couple days. We are back up and running and opened on Saturday and Sunday to make up for lost time. Gas is still hard to come by, but if you’re willing to wait in line thats flowing too now.
