Our Ready Force Team is On Demand When You Need It

The ACRT Ready Force ® team specializes in supporting utilities with a variety of immediate response needs. It’s an adaptable, flexible solution to help utilities stay on their feet when — and where — disasters of any kind strike.

Disaster Planning and Preparedness

Storms and other disasters can cause regulations to change drastically — leaving utilities with little time to respond or adapt. Ready Force can work with you to either establish a response program before these events occur, or develop an as-needed contract to provide support when and where it’s needed most.

Storm Response and Restoration

Ready Force personnel can be anywhere in the country in a short amount of time to assist utilities with storm response and restoration efforts. From Katrina to Isaac to Irma, ACRT can mobilize and deploy Ready Force agents and vehicles to your utility service area typically within 24 hours. These teams get to work immediately by assessing damages and directing tree crews on whatever scale is needed.

UVM Program Jumpstart or Execution

The complexities of utility vegetation management are ever-changing, which is why you need a reliable and experienced partner to protect your needs. Whatever your need, ACRT can inspect and assess your existing system to get a UVM program in place as quickly as possible, ensuring that work is performed immediately and the right resources are in place.

Personnel Coverage

When you lose key personnel to illness or personal leave, it can be impossible to hire in time to keep your systems running. Our Ready Force agents have industry knowledge, training and management experience, meaning they can step into a role quickly and keep your program running.

Whatever the challenge might be, Ready Force is flexible enough to meet that challenge head-on.

ACRT always has been, and always will be, about one thing: people. It’s about our employees, our customers, and the communities our customers serve. We empower the best people to help sustain our world. We’re the only independent national vegetation management consulting firm — giving us the freedom to put our clients first.

I would like to personally thank ACRT for helping to set up and man our annual members’ meeting. ACRT was very well represented to our customers as professional and knowledgeable SECO partners with our members’ best interests at heart. Great job!
