Critical heat and A/C during Hurricane Michael
On a Thursday in October, Hurricane Michael crashed down on Panama City, Florida. At 2 pm, Ellipse Global made a call to United Rental's Power and HVAC division to get heat and cool air to their food and medical tents. The only problem: the closest Climate Solutions Branch was in New Orleans - 3 hours away.
Time to go to work.
By 10 pm that night, United Rentals had 48 units delivered and set up. Thanks to our personnel, network and critical speed, victims and first responders got the medical attention and warm meals they needed when it mattered most.
