Safelite AutoGlass In Action Following Charley

August 19, 2004

Ohio-based Safelite AutoGlass, a provider of auto glass repair and replacement services, announced that its Catastrophe Action Team has sent more than 25 additional technicians and support personnel to Florida in order to assist customers with auto glass damage resulting from Hurricane Charley.

“Safelite is fortunate that all of our associates remained safe and that
we experienced no major damage to any location,” Dan Wilson, president and CEO, said. “Now it is our job to help those who were not as fortunate by being available when and where customers need assistance.”

Safelite AutoGlass is scheduling service 24 hours a day, seven days a week via the phone or web and has extended in-shop service and mobile service to customers’ homes or offices in the affected areas to include early mornings, evenings and weekends.

“Our experience indicates that, while auto glass damage is not as
devastating as having substantial damage to your home, customers are relieved to have one piece of their life put back to normal when their vehicle is repaired,” Wilson said.

Safelite’s Catastrophe Action Team (CAT) was created in 1992 in response to Hurricane Andrew. CAT procedures allow the company to prepare for weather- related disasters and quickly respond to customers by having additional staffing, glass inventory and computers available for immediate deployment to the affected areas.
