Using Water Tanks for Disaster Relief and Preparedness

With the tragic disasters of Hurricane Harvey and Irma this past week, we’ve seen first hand how much damage can be done overnight to your home. It’s a reminder for being prepared for when the worst comes and also demonstrates how the right people with the right resources can have a dramatic impact on helping their community during disaster relief. 

Chief among sought after resources in natural disasters like these is water. We take water for granted most of the year, but when moments like this happen it becomes in high demand. Maybe you saw headlines of retailers skyrocketing their prices on bottled water, making it harder to survive if you don’t already have your home in order. It’s a terrible thing, but water tanks can help prevent you or your friends and family from having to endure these types of problems and focus on keeping everyone safe.

Bladder Tanks

Bladder tanks are one of the best resources you can keep around in case of a natural disaster or humanitarian crisis like the ones being experienced in Texas and Florida. Their flexible design makes them easier to store when you don’t need them as well as easy to transport. Having one filled up and stored away in your home is a great assurance. You hope you never have to use it, but having it available is better than not. There are smaller sizes in the 20-50 gallon range for your home, but larger sizes are also available all the way up to 20,000 gallons. Larger bladder tanks are great for humanitarian services assisting the community, providing water to multitudes of people who may otherwise not have access.

Pickup Truck Tanks

Having a pickup truck during a disaster is almost like having a superpower. You have the power and space to haul all the supplies you need and then some. This is especially great because the one hamperer of water tanks is often transporting them. Thankfully there’s an array of hauling tanks great that fit great in your truck. Whether it’s an actual pickup truck water tank or a flat bottom water tank that’s the right size for your vehicle or flat bottom tanks you can stack against each other in your truck bed to distribute to others, you have plenty of options.

Natural disasters like these are harrowing, trying, and even deadly. Having the right tools at your disposal is important. Consider investing in a water tank to prepare you and yours before the next disaster hits. It’s better to be prepared than to not.
