Tripp Lite Launches Severe Weather Power Protection Microsite
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chicago, IL (July 17, 2007)–Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection equipment, has created a Severe Weather Power Protection Microsite at www.tripplite.com/severeweather. The Microsite is an educational resource filled with practical information about keeping computers and electronics safe during severe weather events such as thunderstorms, hurricanes and extreme heat.
The June-through-November storm season is the most destructive time of year, as severe weather increases the frequency of power problems that destroy equipment, corrupt data and diminish productivity. So far this summer, thunderstorms and record heat waves have caused blackouts and frequent brownouts in cities throughout the U.S., including an outage in New York that left traffic and subway service in chaos for hours.
While we can’t control the weather, we can learn to minimize the harmful effects of severe weather events. The new Severe Weather Power Protection Microsite teaches consumers and businesses how to guarantee safe, reliable power, regardless of inclement conditions or undependable utility power. The Microsite has links to a variety of severe weather preparedness resources and includes a FAQ section that offers visitors the opportunity to submit their own questions to Tripp Lite’s power protection experts. In addition, a free white paper that provides a concise summary of severe weather power safety can be downloaded from the Microsite and printed for off-line viewing or sharing with friends, family and colleagues.
