Texas averages 132 tornadoes a year. The majority of those tornadoes happen in the months of April, May, and June as cold weather meets the beginning of the summer heat. Tornados tend to take the path of least resistance through open fields, and unfortunately through buildings, houses, and highways. Natural disasters are difficult to prepare for when they come out of the blue with little to no warning. To battle the destruction caused by natural disasters, such as tornados, ERC has multiple Job Order Contracts (JOC) for disaster recovery.
After the tornado of October 2019 ripped through North Texas, ERC sprang into action and our DFW Area Manager, Kevin Rezvanipour, supervised a demolition project of an apartment complex that was damaged beyond repair. Not only was the apartment complex torn apart by the tornado, but it also contained asbestos that had to be abated with the demolition activities.
Even though the aftermath of a natural disaster can be devastating, many people came together to help where they could. Neighbors helped each other by chopping up fallen trees and clearing debris, community centers opened their doors for shelter and supplies, and local businesses offered assistance with damages caused by the tornado. ERC is a firm believer in relieving the stress of cleaning up with our cooperative contracts for disaster recovery and rebuilding.
