HPS Safety Culture

We want to reassure our customers that we remain committed to serving you and your families as we navigate through the current COVID-19 crisis. As an essential business during this crisis, we will continue to provide 24/7 service to our customers for all emergency services.
Safety is our number one priority for both you and our family of professional service technicians. We are requiring our technicians to use a new set of gloves for each service call, sanitize all surfaces thoroughly before working on them and to keep at least six feet away from all customers.
