    Woodsboro Independent School District Case Study

    The Unexpected Happened

    Across the country, the beginning of school brings stress to students and teachers alike. But for Woodsboro Independent School District (WISD), a small rural district in southeast Texas that serves around 500 students, anxiety levels at the start of the 2017 school year were heightened by one disastrous event: Hurricane Harvey.

    On Friday August 25th, just four days after classes started, Hurricane Harvey ripped through the town of Woodsboro, cutting power and communication lines throughout the area for nearly two weeks. After assessing damage on Saturday morning, Jimmy Blaschke, the WISD employee in charge of district safety, knew the recovery process would not be quick or easy, so WISD contacted us for help.

    They Called Us

    Attaining a power source was a number one priority for the district. But with widespread destruction from the storm, and hurricanes Irma and Maria looming, generators were in high demand across the region. Fortunately for WISD, as an Agility Recovery customer, this wouldn’t be an issue.
