ST. LOUIS, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With the start of hurricane season, Enterprise Rent-A-Car once again is prepared and ready to support the insurance industry and local disaster recovery efforts. In fact, the Enterprise network – with more than 5,500 offices located within 15 miles of 90 percent of the U.S. population – is uniquely positioned to quickly respond to the needs of thousands of communities whenever disasters strike.
The flagship Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand is owned and operated by Enterprise Holdings, the largest car rental company in the world, based on revenues, fleet size and number of locations. In addition, each Enterprise regional operation has an Emergency Action Plan that focuses on how Enterprise's branch offices communicate with each other to ensure that the right number and types of vehicles are available where they are needed most.
"When any disaster hits, the two most important factors are communication and cooperation," said Mary Mahoney, vice president, insurance replacement division for Enterprise Rent-A-Car. "Insurance adjusters and relief workers are often the first people on the ground following natural disasters, and they need vehicles to assess the damage. As a result, we're prepared to respond quickly and move our fleet seamlessly into affected areas to ensure vehicles are available."
This sort of volatility and urgency, often generated by a diverse array of severe weather events, impacts consumer as well as insurance and first-responder needs. For example, both the National League of Cities and New York Gov. Cuomo's office have noted Enterprise's leadership in disaster recovery efforts. Government Executive magazine likewise recognized Enterprise in its "Crisis Management: Storm Surge" article last year.
In the first half of this year alone, there are many additional examples:
Enterprise's efforts during – as well as after – such storms reflect a sustainable business strategy that focuses on both reliable transportation and long-term relationships in the communities it serves. As Lee Broughton, head of corporate sustainability for Enterprise Holdings, stressed in his DrivingFutures blog: "….we see it as our responsibility to take care of our communities, longtime partners and local customers when natural disasters and emergencies arise."
