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
Sand bags can provide the strength and support you need to limit the amount of flood damage. They are an effective option for use along banks, homes, or businesses.
Sandbags are made using either a high UV poly or burlap material. These strong materials work to keep sand contained, while simultaneously controlling or limiting the flow of water.
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:
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 Works 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 Plastic Water Tanks for emergency water storage.
