Emergency Supplies | Hurricane & Flood Prep
Be prepared before storms strike!
Having a ready cache of the right emergency supplies (and an emergency plan) are key to having peace-of-mind and even survival (financial or physical). Please read on for important emergency preparedness supplies and tips for hurricanes, floods, and storms that you may not have considered in your planning.
Did you know? "Each year, the United States averages some 10,000 thunderstorms, 5,000 floods, 1,300 tornadoes and 2 Atlantic hurricanes, as well as widespread droughts and wildfires. Weather, water and climate events, cause an average of 650 deaths and $15 billion in damage per year and are responsible for some 90 percent of all presidentially-declared disasters" according to NOAA..
Hurricane & Flood Emergency Supplies
No Time Like the Present!
Many of us think about planning for an emergency, but get overwhelmed. The truth is that unless we actually act to prepare, we will find ourselves unready when a pending emergency or hurricane storm looms. There is no need to feel overhwelmed though. Simply make your list of storm supplies, then start acquiring the emergency supplies you need. A little preparation is better than none, after all.
Consider including these storm supplies in your plan:
- See: Water storage tanks
- See: Fuel containers and spill containment supplies
- See: Property protection supplies
- See: Additional emergency supplies for facilities & municipalities
- See: Stormwater supplies for construction sites
With natural disasters, the clean water supply is often interrupted (or corrupted) for days or weeks, depending on the severity of the emergency. Water is needed for drinking, cleaning, cooking, and for using the restroom. The bottom line is that you won't want to get caugth without a water supply.
Let us help. GEI Worls manufactures well-made temporary water storage tanks that can be used for potable (drinkable) or non-potable water, depending on the type of fabric coating you request. Our emergency water storage tanks are popular for their ruggedness and durability, as well as convenience (they fold up for easy storage and quick deployment). Options include:
We also offer a selection of poly tanks for emergency water storage.
Gasoline is one of the first supplies that stores run out of during an emergency situation. You definitely don't want to wait until the last minute to check this one off your list. We can help you safely store fuel, as part of your emergency preparations. Supplies incude:
If you're looking for larger sized fuel storage options:
- Flexible fuel tanks (diesel)
- Other fuel tanks
- Fuel caddies to get the fuel from the tank to the equipment
- Fuel tank containment (sump)
Also, spill kits are good to keep on hand, especially in the garage (plus it comes with a camo bag!) - see emergency absorbent spill kit
It is also a good idea to keep emergency supplies handy for protecting your property, equipment or facility.
