DISASTER PREPARATION & RESPONSE

No one knows when a disaster will strike. Far too frequently, emergency preparedness is not even a consideration until it is too late. However, as the old saying goes, those who fail to plan, plan to fail.

Make sure National Construction Rentals is on your list of approved vendors whether you are a government official, contractor, business owner or private citizen. Many have come to rely on the expertise of National Construction Rentals to assist with some of the most high profile disasters in American history: the attacks on New York’s World Trade Center, Joplin, Missouri tornadoes, Hurricane Katrina, the Northridge, CA earthquake, the bombing at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City and more.

In addition to equipment management, there are a host of logistics and materials that must be addressed. Establishing a list of approved vendors for your every need will allow you time for immediate action once the need arises.

With fallen power lines, compromised roads and bridges, destroyed business and private property, perimeter security is critical to assessing damage and gaining control of your situation. Temporary chain link fencing and barricades are a perfect solution. In the hours, days and weeks after a disaster has occurred, safety needs to be quickly established as the long process of clean-up, inspections and reconstruction begin. Product details here...

After a disaster occurs, cleaning materials, building supplies, and construction equipment will be needed in vast quantities. There will also be a need for this inventory to be securely stored and easily accessible. With National Construction Rentals' 14-gauge, steel-constructed mobile storage containers with secure lock boxes, piece of mind will be available when the time comes. Product details here...

The complexities of post-disaster response require two phases: planning prior to any disaster, and recovery afterwards. Being proactive, having a disaster readiness program in place, and maintaining an up-to-date post-disaster vendor program will ensure your team will be prepared during the days, weeks and months following any unforeseen event.
