June 30, 2009 -- With the beginning of the 2009 Hurricane Season upon us, hurricane prone states across the country are doing their part to help prepare their citizens and communities. A huge part of gearing up for hurricane season is emergency preparedness. States are taking actions to ensure that citizens and the emergency response community are prepared for the 2009 hurricane season.
CMC Government Services has a wide variety of emergency responder items available to those who are preparing for this year’s hurricane season. Some of these items include ready made and custom CERT kits. There are various levels of kits from starter kits to professional kits all containing FEMA required items and supplies assembled in one kit with several backpack options. These kits contain quality, name brand products, save time, and give peace of mind to emergency personnel by knowing that everything they need is is in the bag.
"Across the country, we are working and communicating with our state and local partners to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season," said FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate. "States are also taking it upon themselves to make sure their citizens and responders are prepared. These efforts will go a long way in determining the outcome of the next hurricane or disaster, and I applaud them."
There are many unique and important products to consider when selecting tools to prepare. For example, the 4 in 1 Emergency Tool, which was designed and tested by firefighters, is a very useful tool to have on site in an emergency situation. This tool can shut off gas and water, pry open doors and dig through debris.
CMC also provides NANUK Professional Protective Cases for valuable equipment to be protected from the elements. Made of high impact NK-7 resin with PowerClaw latches, these cases are virtually indestructible, lightweight, and watertight to meet the unique needs of professionals in the field.
