Enterprise Rent-A-Car announced it is pledging $100,000 to the Canadian Red Cross disaster relief efforts in response to wildfires in Fort McMurray, Alberta.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s network in Canada includes 600 branch offices that are able to provide local transportation alternatives for insurance companies, emergency response organizations, utility companies and repair shops.
Enterprise regional operations are also equipped with an Emergency Action Plan that identifies steps to take in a crisis, a contact list for key personnel and disaster recovery guidelines for daily rental branches.
“We are thankful that our employees and their families have been accounted for and are safe. But we know the job is far from done and on behalf of everyone at Enterprise, we want to commend the brave firefighters, emergency services personnel and aid workers whose efforts have saved lives and are protecting the community from further devastation,” said Jim Thompson, vice president and general manager for Enterprise in Alberta. “Enterprise is a family-run company that operates in communities across Canada so when disaster strikes, supporting our families and the local relief and recovery effort becomes our top priority.”
