Faster Response Time

Our response times are among the lowest in the industry, significantly shorter than the industry standard of two hours. First Call focuses on beating all industry standards. In fact, this is a part of what we call the “First Call Difference”. A fast response time in conjunction with an accurate assessment and fast and effective containment allow us to limit our customer’s liability and save them money.  Check out our Face book page to follow our projects!

FCE Latest News

On Tuesday morning I discovered I had a leak coming from my oil tank in my basement above ground. The first company I called responded and tried to patch the drip. In doing so a bigger hole was made in the tank and the oil was coming out at a high volume. I’ve known Chuck Reinwald and First Call Environmental for many years and I made the call for his assistance. Within 15 minutes of my call, he was at my house giving his experience and knowledge as to what to do. His crew showed up about 45 minutes later (due to traffic) and they went to work. They got PPE on and couldn’t have been more courteous in a stressful situation. After assessing the situation, the oil was removed from the tank and the area was cleaned up swiftly before they went on their way. This coming Tuesday they’re scheduled to return to remove the tank and hopefully my headache will be over.

Thank you once again to Chuck Reinwald and his professional staff at First Call Environmental.  I would highly recommend Chuck and Team First Call to anyone that has any oil tank issues.

Sincerely, Richard Yuhas
