With the impact of Hurricanes (Harvey, Irma) and other catastrophic weather events, we should keep the following in mind while doing our best to help those in need:
The PEARL LINK can be utilized from any mobile device and requests will go to PEARL members. This can be accessed by going to https://pearl1.org/PEARL-Link.
Make sure to provide emergency contact information for requests and fast answers. If possible, this should be 24/7 access via phone, text, email.
Emergency freight companies. Please have lists and contact info prepared. These companies will be very busy so the more options you have, the faster the response.
The more information that is provided, the easier it is to ensure PEARL members are providing exactly what is needed. Photos, video, nameplate data, control voltage, etc., will help all
to stay on the same page.
Rely on the experts. Many PEARL Members have knowledge about equipment from the 1940's on.
Tested Equipment - Buyer Beware. During Hurricane Sandy many organizations purchased equipment from companies that DO NOT test, inspect or rebuild. PEARL Members must follow strict
guidelines in order to provide safe and reliable equipment. PEARL Members are here to help save time and costs with tested and reliable equipment.
Founded in 1997, the Professional Electrical Apparatus Reconditioning League (PEARL) is a national trade organization for companies that supply quality surplus and
