Mission Critical Operations Case Study

A customer with over 1,000 childcare and education centers across the U.S. needed help in preparation for Hurricane Sandy when it hit in late October, 2012. Many of the customer locations were in the hurricane’s path.

Prior to the storm, the EFS client team provided the customer critical information that allowed them to make quick decisions regarding evacuation. EFS also helped implement preventive and cost-effective solutions that helped minimize the potential for significant property damage.

Within 24 hours of the storm, EFS implemented a complete disaster recovery plan that determined that amongst the customer’s sites:

  • 65 sites were damaged
  • 50 percent of the sites had lost power and were closed
  • 109 facility repairs were needed

Within 36 hours after the storm hit, EFS restored power to 65 percent of the affected locations. Within 72 hours, EFS provided expansive support for the customer to open all of its locations.

Through a lot of pre-storm preparation, and a highly collaborative and strategic response, EFS helped mitigate the risk and damage to the centers.
