Tree vs. Generator: Cat 100 kW Stands Strong in Florida Panhandle Storm

Storms battered the Florida Panhandle yesterday, wreaking havoc on power lines and leaving many communities in the dark. But in Leon County, a critical lifeline remained lit thanks to the unwavering power of a Cat 100 kW generator and the quick response of the Ring Power Tallahassee team.

The Leon County Health Department, where they also function as a vital emergency shelter for the community, found themselves facing a power outage due to fallen trees. One of these trees even took aim at the department's generator, landing on its protective enclosure.

But just as nature threw its worst, the Cat engine roared to life, safeguarding the building's essential functions throughout the morning and into the afternoon.

Why is this such a big deal?

Beyond offering shelter during emergencies, Health Departments hold a crucial responsibility: they store vital medical supplies, including vaccines, that require strict temperature control. A prolonged power outage could have meant the loss of these life-saving resources.

That's where Ring Power’s Tallahassee team stepped in. As soon as the call came in, our team knew the urgency of the situation. Within 20 minutes of notification, our generator technician, James "JR" Hostetter, was on-site. He swiftly assessed the situation, ensuring the generator could safely continue powering the building until City of Tallahassee crews restored the grid.

This story is a testament to the power of preparedness and rapid response. It's a reminder that even when nature throws its worst, with the right equipment and dedicated partners, critical services can remain operational, protecting the health and well-being of our communities.

At Ring Power, we're proud to be a part of this story. We're committed to providing reliable power solutions and exceptional generator service, ensuring that even in the darkest of times, the lights stay on for those who need it most.
