The purpose of Quanta Services’ Storm Management Services is to provide utility customers with assistance in managing storm restoration over a wide range of storm conditions. Our teams provide utilities with qualified and well-trained management for large restoration workforces that can be integrated into the utilities’ restoration efforts.
Quanta Services has quick access and mobilization capabilities on more than 4,000 linemen across the country –getting the utility the help that’s neededimmediately.
Quanta’s specialized equipment resources are unsurpassed in the industry, with approximately 45,000 pieces of rolling stock ranging from hybrid pickups to 1600 horsepower trenchers weighing more than 500,000 pounds. We have the largest trenchers, longest directional boring machines, largest pullers and tensioners and all other ancillary equipment needed to support multiple EHV transmission projects simultaneously. We also have the ability to bring in resources from other areas of the country to supplement any local shortages that may occur.
The Quanta storm assessor team plays a critical role in a circuit-based restoration strategy as first responder. Quanta only uses qualified linemen for storm assessment, which allows for accurate information to be gathered the first time, improving restoration estimates and mobilization times.
Once the damage has been assessed and power is being restored, restoration progress reporting becomes a key part of the restoration process. Quanta’s Storm Management Team uses communication support personnel to gather restoration progress from crews and submits those to the Communication Coordinator every 6 hours. The Communication Coordinator prepares a summary report which is given to the utility liaison, thus ensuring that the utility is always aware of the restoration progress in the assigned area, which improves resource allocation decision-making and restoration estimates.
The Storm Management Team is comprised of the following:

Therefore, all Quanta employees must observe high standards of conduct in all contacts with suppliers, customers, competitors, governmental officials, fellow employees and the general public.
All publicly visible corporations, like Quanta, are under constant scrutiny. As a result, our Board of Directors has reaffirmed its strong commitment to our business practices being conducted in accordance with the highest possible ethical standards through its adoption of the Code of Ethics and Business Conduct. The standards contained in the Code are applicable to every Quanta employee. Compliance with the Code is mandatory. Ethical conduct can only result from a trained and sensitive awareness of right and wrong. Although daily life provides a spectrum of situations that can never be fully anticipated by any set of rules, we believe that we have identified certain broad areas in which ethical, legal and moral issues may be raised in the context of Quanta’s business.

We must prevent illegal or unethical practices from taking root in our corporate culture and must report any violations, as prescribed in the Code. Even if the actions in question are those of a supervisor or manager, if they are illegal or unethical, they are against Quanta’s policy. No form of retaliation against those who report such actions in good faith will be tolerated.
Whether interacting with stockholders, fellow employees, customers, suppliers, competitors or the general public, the principles expressed in the Code are our guide. Each employee is expected to represent our Company with honor, integrity and best efforts and to maintain Quanta’s valued reputation for the highest standard of business integrity.
