VALENTINES DAY QUAKE

Wed, March 02, 2016

Big quake all in a (busy) day’s work for Christchurch team.

It was the biggest earthquake in several years, but the Christchurch team took the Valentine’s Day quake in their stride and won high praise from customers in the process.

Ben Wooding, who manages Armourguard’s central and lower South Island regions, says everyone quickly swung into action after the shaking  stopped.

All of the alarms started going off and our people ended up attending 80 activations in a three-hour period, compared to the normal five or  six.

What’s more, our Patrol team had to go and physically check a customer’s 21 bank sites throughout Canterbury – some of which were up to 150 km away, says Ben.

And what a great job they did – so much so that several customers got in touch to thank the Armourguard team for their great work in checking their  sites.

Ben says everyone has learned to quickly get on with things after an earthquake, despite it admittedly being a nerve-wracking experience
