Since we are still in hurricane season let’s look at the recommended preparations in the event of another storm and flooding. Tips to protect your Xerox machines and supplies –
- Secure Units: Unplug devices and place electrical cords securely on top of machines.
- Move Units: If possible, relocate machines to middle of rooms—away from windows and / or open doors.
- Cover Units: Wrap machines with heavy-gauge plastic to protect them from water and / or falling debris.
- Relocate Supplies: Move supplies off floors and into secure rooms to avoid damage. Cover paper and other supplies with heavy-gauge plastic.
Note: Upon returning to work, if machines show signs of water damage, do not plug-in the units. Please call the Xerox Customer Relations Group help-line (above) for instructions on how to proceed.
I am in Texas so here are the things being done in relation to Hurricane Harvey. Similar help should be extended to the Hurricane Irma relief efforts.
- Xerox has increased its donation to the American Red Cross to support both Harvey and Irma relief efforts. The company will continue to match employee donations.
- We have provided equipment to the City of Dallas for the evacuation center set up at the Dallas Convention Center.
- We are helping various Texas government agencies with their printing requirements to support storm victims in their recovery efforts.
- Xerox employees and former employees at a logistics distribution center in Indianapolis have assembled supplies and are including them in trucks bound for Houston. (Photos, above)
