Emergency TechShare Program

National Emergency TechShare Program

A National Network of Technicians to Support Preparation and Recovery Efforts Throughout the U.S.

The generator industry is unlike any other trade. It requires specialty training and experience that is not easily or commonly learned in the field. One of the biggest challenges in this industry is finding and retaining experienced technicians. Most generator companies struggle to meet current service demand and are certainly not poised to handle the significant demand associated with emergency events.
