Bergeron Equipment and Resources

Bergeron Equipment

The Bergeron Family of Companies has the distinct advantage of having access to a company-owned equipment inventory worth more than $25 million.

Hurricane Irma – September 2017

Hurricane Irma - September 2017

Hurricane Irma was the strongest hurricane observed in the Atlantic since Wilma in 2005 in terms of maximum sustained winds. It was also the most intense Atlantic hurricane to strike the United States since Katrina in 2005. Bergeron responded quickly and in the end had assisted 21 clients covering almost 7,500 square miles. 

2005 Atlantic Hurricane Season

2005 Atlantic Hurricane Season

The 2005 Atlantic hurricane season was the most active ever recorded. To respond to the destructive impact, Bergeron Emergency Services opened and managed five of the largest Temporary Debris Staging and Reduction Sites (TDSRS) in Florida’s history and successfully conducted site management operations in excess of two million cubic yards.

Kentucky Ice Storms

Kentucky Ice Storms

Following an ice storm that left 55 people dead, Kentucky suffered its largest power outage on record, with 609,000 homes and businesses without power across the state. Property damage was widespread, with the damage due to falling trees, large tree limbs and power lines weighed down by ice. Bergeron Emergency Services dispatched its Advanced Management Team to identify the most heavily impacted area and to develop a response strategy. As prime contractor, Bergeron Emergency Services provided hazardous tree removal and trimming and right of way loading and hauling of vegetative debris generated from back-to-back ice storms.

Hurricane Matthew

Hurricane Matthew

Although it never made landfall in Florida, Hurricane Matthew made his presence known with wind gusts reported as high as 107 mph in Cape Canaveral, widespread flash flooding and record rainfall. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) contracted Bergeron Emergency Services to clear roadways and remove debris resulting from the storm in FDOT District Five.

Tropical Storm Debby

Tropical Storm Debby

Due to the slow, lumbering forward movement of Tropical Storm Debby, nearly 30 inches of rain fell on portions of North and Central Florida. More than 30 Florida counties immediately found themselves in a flood fight and local emergencies were declared. As the storm made landfall, Bergeron Emergency Service personnel attended Emergency Operations Center meetings in Pasco County to plan and prepare for the subsequent debris issues that were expected. Our experience enabled us to provide a debris-estimate for the Preliminary Damage Assessments (PDA) to the State that ensured that the necessary thresholds would be met to for the County to receive Federal assistance from FEMA’s Public Assistance Program.

Haiti Earthquake

Haiti Earthquake

Following the earthquake that devastated Haiti in January 2010, Bergeron Emergency Services aligned with Haiti company SAJ, S.A. to create a Haitian/American joint venture composed of two highly qualified, family run entities to aid in the reconstruction.
