The Federal Emergency Management Agency, under the direction of Homeland Security, commissioned Kohler Rental Power to supply temporary emergency power generators and ancillary services to be used in the case of extended power outages from winter storms.
FEMA secured 23 Kohler generators ranging from 100 kW to 1 MW, cabling, distribution, mobilization, demobilization and labor support. The leased generators were staged at FEMA’s Incident Support Base in Fort Campbell, Ky., to respond to disaster situations in that region. The leased generators will power critical federal, state and local facilities and support first responders in the event of mass power outages. They can be used in military installations, hospitals, nursing homes, fire and police stations, and water treatment plants.
Kohler is required to provide personnel to operate the generators 24 hours a day, seven days a week and must be prepared to respond within the hour to any service requests.
Kohler Rental Power provides temporary power, HVAC, luxury restrooms, as well as complete planning, implementation and professional support to the industrial, commercial, disaster recovery and event markets throughout the United States.
