An Emergency Solution Keeps High School Classes In Session

While many high school students might celebrate unexpected time off from school, the same can’t be said for the teachers, school administrators or school boards who are responsible for providing a high quality education for their students.

That’s why, when a private high school in Ontario experienced an emergency outage, the school board wanted power restored to the building on time for the first bell on the following day.

Not only does Trinity Power believe in the importance of education, we also believe in responding to our clients’ emergencies quickly, effectively and professionally. So when the call came in, we got to work immediately.

The Challenge: An Electrical Room Leak Threatens School Closure

Our client had surveyed the damage, and promised the school board that classes would be able to resume as usual the following morning.


Our Approach: A Fast and Thorough Response

Because of our complete portfolio of 24/7 emergency response projects, we have the process down to a science.

Within one hour of the initial call, we were able to provide our client with a complete formal quote; and within 5 hours, equipment was arriving on site.

The temporary power solution that we delivered included:

For the Trinity team, emergency response doesn’t end with sourcing equipment. We also delivered the equipment to and from the site, including supplying a forklift for offloading.

In order to ensure the generator ran efficiently and without interruption, we provided refueling services and developed a fuel delivery schedule that would minimize our client’s fuel expenditure while keeping the generator fueled appropriately.


The Result: A Promise Kept

Thanks to Trinity Power’s 24/7 emergency response, our client was able to keep their promise to restore power to the school in time for classes to resume as normal the following day.
