Hurricane Ike - CAT Field Team Status
By Rick Wilson - Published September 22, 2008 - Viewed 2152 times
Hello again from
We have had a very productive Monday here in the Field.
The HYC now has a crane at the facility and salvage jobs got started there today. The general manager at the HYC has been very helpful and I think they have really appreciated all the help from our surveyors. Fred Wright from
Jim Wood and Mike McCook have both made contact with the city manager in
David Wiggin was able to sign contracts for salvage jobs on the north side of
Bill Ballard and George Mansfield were able to get several boats floated and temporarily staged at the docks at Watergate Marina and ready to be hauled out for our trucks. Randy Roden also was able to crank out more damage appraisals through the south side of
Jonathon Klopman was able to coordinate the salvage and blocking of several boats on
In the yard we were able to get operations underway. We had porta-potties delivered, we arranged for security from 7pm to 7 am, we had 3 boats delivered to the yard and a dumpster should be delivered later in the week. Two of our 3 truckers have arrived today and we should be moving some boats tomorrow. The third trucker should be here on Tuesday afternoon.
It is my hope that the pace is about to pick up dramatically. Rob, Trisha, Andrea and Rocky have begun to see an increase in the volume of paperwork for processing of salvage payments and claim settlements and have done a fabulous job of managing this within Workdesk.
Thank you to everyone back at headquarters for all of your support. Specifically, I have had several compliments from the surveyors regarding the quality of the information being provided in the first reports regarding identification of boats. This is an excellent improvement over previous storms and we thank everyone taking first reports at PSC, FSC and HQ for their attention to detail in this regard.
Christina, if you could please pass these compliments on to policy service for me I would greatly appreciate it.
