Massive Hurricane Cleanup puts high-performance Vacall AllJetVac and AllVac Machines to work

Long Beach Island, a barrier island along the coast of New Jersey, experienced some of that state’s greatest damage and most extensive cleanup as a result of the storm surge from Hurricane Sandy in 2012. In addition to knocking out utilities and creating widespread wind damage, the hurricane's nine-foot storm surge filled storm drains and sewer lines with sand and mud.

Read how Vacall's high-performance AllJetVac and AllVac helped with the massive cleanup.
