With the start of hurricane season, Enterprise Rent-A-Car announced the company is prepared to support the insurance industry and local disaster recovery efforts — if and when needed.

According to Enterprise, all of its regional operations have an Emergency Action Plan, which focuses on how 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, Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s vice president of insurance replacement division. “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.”
