With the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season having kicked off earlier this month (June 1st), it's a good idea for contractors and those in the construction industry to ensure they are prepared for what may potentially lie ahead. Aside from the usual household preparedness items (bottled water, non-perishable food items, batteries, etc), it's a good idea to review your inventory of tools to ensure you are ready should disaster strike.
The aftermath of a strong hurricane or tropical storm provides no shortage of work for contractors, and many often overlook the need to properly stock up on the proper equipment and tools in the event their services are needed.
Portable generators, saws, landscaping equipment, and gasoline (both diesel and unleaded) are in high demand and short supply in the area(s) affected by a storm. For this reason, you need to ensure you are ready prior to an event taking place.
Earlier this month, Colorado State University announced its revised 2013 hurricane season forecast, with 18 named storms, 9 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes, making this a potentially active season. Additionally, CSU stated there was a 72% chance of at least one major hurricane impacting any stretch of coastline on the United States. For this reason, you need to be prepared!
