October 11, 2016, Savannah, Georgia – Royal Restrooms has responded to all types of disasters in its 12 years of nationwide service: floods, tornadoes, industrial accidents, to name a few. Hurricane Matthew’s approach made it clear that this time would be different.
The staff of Royal Restrooms’ nationwide headquarters in Savannah went into full preparation mode as Hurricane Matthew traveled up the east coast. Essential logistics personnel strategically secured the trailer fleet and hunkered down to prepare for emergency response in the affected areas. Office staff packed up and moved to a temporary space 200 miles inland where power and internet connectivity were unaffected.
Royal Restrooms Disaster Response
Due to diligent preparation, the restroom and shower trailer fleet sustained no loss or damage and were ready for deployment. By the time the storm hit Savannah with high winds and rain, the mobile office was already fielding calls. Local, state, and federal government response agencies, businesses and personal customers flooded lines with requests for mobile showers and restroom trailers. Royal Restrooms’ corporate office never went offline during the storm.
Royal Restrooms delivered results along the east coast by mobilizing assets from multiple locations. The team dispatched portable showers and restroom trailers to relief shelters, emergency response command centers, fire stations, and anywhere else needed. Royal Restrooms continues to supply thousands of people with sanitary restroom and shower facilities, a welcome comfort especially relevant for people in areas where power may not be restored for days or weeks.
Disaster Response a Team Effort
Royal Restrooms extends a special thank-you to all emergency response personnel that risked life and limb to keep our coastal communities safe, Royal Restrooms of the Carolinas, Royal Restrooms of Florida, and to the Royal Restrooms national emergency response crew that braved the storm to help relief efforts.
