Marquee Event Rentals, headquartered
in McCook, Ill., is also well-versed in
dealing with extreme heat. The company
provides event services throughout the
U.S., although it primarily focuses on the
Midwest and Southern regions, says Neil
Cornhoff, vice president-Texas region.
The three Texas locations-Dallas, Austin
and San Antonio-are areas that routinely
bake under high heat and humidity from
May through September, with July and
August being the worst.
When temperatures rise, Marquee also
resorts to early-morning starts, providing
crews with fluids and ice to help ward off
heatstroke and heat exhaustion.

outdoor cocktail hour was held for the 400
people attending a Saturday wedding and formal
sit-down reception. Taking place in August 2020,
one of the ways Marianne's Rentals addressed
the Oklahoma heat was by using a very large A/C
unit that was turned on in the clearspan reception
tent (shown here) Thursday evening, running 24/7
until after the event. Photo courtesy of Aaron
Snow Photography and Marianne's Rentals.
" We consistently schedule breaks
on-site and have our teams in shaded
or covered areas, " Cornhoff says. " In our
warehouses we provide drink stations,
have large fans running throughout the
day, and have temperature-controlled
areas throughout the facility for our
team to cool off and recharge. "
Marquee certified its leads and
management team in first aid and CPR,
with the first aid classes addressing heat
safety. Regular safety meetings on that
and other topics are also held.
