Emergency Disaster Supplies:
Our line of disaster supplies includes potable and non-potable water bladders, as well as fuel bladders. Our crew is always willing and able to hit the ground running when it comes to responding to natural or human-made disasters. We stock many water bladders, fuel bladders, and spill containment berms that are easy to transport to the disaster zone.
Water and Fuel Distribution Systems:
When disaster hits, both fuel and water are necessary to respond to victims of both natural and human-made disasters rapidly. Our water bladders and fuel bladders have been some of the first on the ground deployed by the US military, USAID, Samaritan’s Purse, CARE, and many other NGOs. In addition to our complete line of water bladders and self-closing tap stands for dispensing life-saving water in any disaster, we also provide fuel bladder pumps and spill berms that help keep the disaster recovery work moving and the lights on.
Sphere Standards Drinking Water Standard.
The Sphere Project, launched in 1997, is a unique agreement amongst hundreds of humanitarian actors, international agencies, NGOs, and donor institutions to improve the quality of assistance provided to people affected by disasters and the accountability of the humanitarian system in their disaster. Spill containment berms are a required aspect of that assistance and should also be part of your emergency supplies.Download the Sphere Standards, and, if you have any questions, call us to help with your emergency water or fuel storage planning!
How much water do I need per person:
Since a normally active person needs at least one gallon of water daily just for drinking, you should store at least one gallon of water per person per day. However individual needs may vary, depending on age, physical condition, activity, diet, and climate. For instance, children, nursing mothers, sick people, or a medical emergency might require additional water. Additionally, if you live in a warm-weather climate, more water may be necessary, and in very hot temperatures, water needs can double.
To be safe and well supplied, it’s a good idea to keep at least a three-day supply of water per person.
