It could be an ice storm or a hurricane, a tornado or a blizzard, a fire or a flood.

The truth is, it doesn't really matter what type of emergency you're facing. What does matter is that when the lights go out, it's up to you to get them on again. Fast.

When disaster strikes, lrby is your first source of help. lrby's 24-hour Emergency Response Program ensures you have the products, the people, and the resources you need to get back up and running.

When conditions are at their worst, Irby is at its best.



Materials when and where you need them.

Irby has the materials you need when you need them the most. Our network of 60 strategically located utility branches allows Irby to respond rapidly, and our depth of inventory creates a reliable supply chain for the duration of the storm and recovery.

Irby has access to more than 1.5 million products at all times. Irby can locate and ship materials out of any of our 60 locations nationwide within hours, providing timely service other distributors with limited stock and fewer branches simply can't match.

Irby has enough inventory on hand to keep the average utility company up and running for three days during an emergency. Should the situation demand more, Irby relies on its strong relationships with the industry's top manufacturers to keep materials flowing as long as there's a need.

Manufacturers are willing to work with Irby to deliver more products, more quickly in a crisis. This solid working relationship is a benefit to utility customers available only from Irby.









Delivery when and where you need it.

In the midst of a disaster; finding the means to pick up orders and distribute material is part of the challenge. Irby OnSite delivers material directly to the job site, on an Irby truck driven and unloaded by an Irby driver. When an emergency occurs, Irby works its delivery schedule around you, rather than trying to squeeze your emergency delivery into a fixed schedule.

Irby can also leverage its solid relationships with freight carriers and with manufacturers that operate their own fleets, choosing the most efficient method possible for delivering the materials you need, when you need them. Emergency job site trailers are also available to save time money with materials management.




Manpower when and where you need it.

In a crisis, Irby is your logistics team. Irby Storm Response Teams based in different areas of the country mobilize within hours, putting more than 200 experienced sales people, purchasing experts, warehouse personnel, and truck drivers to work for you immediately, 24 hours a day. At every position, Irby has the personnel you need to get the job done - a depth and breadth of experience and specialized service other distributors simply can't match.

We'll be there through the entire restoration period, helping restore not only your customers' power; but also their confidence in your company. Irby is with you at every level, every minute, until the situation is under control.

"On behalf of all of us at Florida Power & Light Company whose power was affected by hurricanes Frances, Charley, and Jeanne, thank you for the support and assistance you provided as part of our restoration team. Never have we experienced such back-to-back disasters, which interrupted the power of 5.4 million customers.
