Arming your Municipality Against Floods

When disaster strikes, the preparations and actions of local governments determine the community’s recovery. Billions worth of government, commercial, and residential properties can be damaged without a good plan in place. Municipalities prone to flooding can work on ways to mitigate risks and hazards, and map out strategies in case floods are unavoidable.

Investing in proper equipment for cleaning and drainage maintenance should be part of your flood hazard management. Sweepers and vactor trucks can be used to clean your streets and sewers regularly and help prevent flooding. Areas that face problems with litter and debris, occasionally experience thunderstorms, or have a history of recurring flash floods can rent these trucks as needed.

You can also fund a program to rent these equipment and offer sweeping and vactor services to the residents and businesses in your area. That way, the whole community can participate in mitigating flood risks. Of course, the program should be subject to your respective local, state policies, and federal laws.

In the event that your community suffers flooding, these trucks can be used to immediately clean up the neighborhoods. Reliable companies can be called to supply efficient sweepers and powerful vactor trucks. With these contingencies, your community can recover from any disaster as soon as possible.
