International emergency response company specializes in industrial work
North American energy capitals such as Houston and Calgary have traditionally served as headquarters for the specialized emergency response services that the oil and gas industry requires. However, while still leading energy centers, these cities have increasingly become only part of the far reaching and expanding worldwide energy development.
“Transporting personnel and equipment from North America to locations as far away as Southeast Asia, the Middle East, the Caspian Sea or Africa encompasses extended timelines upwards of two or three days to respond to an event,” said Mike Allcorn, Managing Director of Alert Disaster Control (ALERT).
ALERT is an international emergency response and risk management solutions services company whose expertise includes oilfield fire fighting and blowout control, critical well integrity, well control/relief well engineering, marine and industrial fire fighting and hazard materials control response activities. It services industries ranging from energy exploration and development to chemical production and manufacturing.
To date, ALERT personnel have responded to more than 1,200 significant oilfield fire fighting and blowout control, critical well integrity, well control / relief well engineering, marine and industrial fire fighting and hazard materials control response incidents worldwide, Allcorn said.
ALERT established an initial Regional Service Center and eventual Corporate Headquarters in the Republic of Singapore in the late 1980s. Besides the Pacific Rim, ALERT established and maintains Regional Response Service Centers in key regional markets throughout the world. Joining Houston and Calgary on that list are Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and registered offices in Moscow and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk in the Russian Federation.
