Hurricanes are increasing in frequency and strength around the world. Whether they are due to climate change or the complex workings of Mother Nature, there’s no denying that hurricanes, cyclones and tropical storms are forces to be reckoned with. In 2019 and 2020 alone, Texas was struck by two powerful weather events. One was Tropical Storm Imelda, which made landfall near Freeport, Texas. The slow and unpredictable path of this storm caused wide-ranging and disastrous flooding over much of southeastern Texas. Hurricane Hanna made landfall in South Texas in July of 2020. Almost 90,000 residents lost power and water from this monster of a storm that reached 90 MPH winds. Hurricane preparedness is the best course of action going forward.
Businesses of all sizes have to consider the risks of a natural disaster or crisis striking their operations.

Emergency management plans are designed to ensure the safety of processes, employees and building facilities to mitigate and manage disasters.
Hygiene has been on everyone's minds as of late, brought on by a fear of potentially deadly germs. Washing your hands is a way to fend off everything from salmonella to the coronavirus to the common cold. Invisible particles on your hands can cause diarrhea, fever, or stomach bleeding.

We'll look at why you should wash your hands and what can happen if you don't.

That’s why it’s so important to have access to the necessary equipment to create these sanitary conditions, especially in field response.
In the day and age of extreme concern about the spread of contagious viruses, there’s never been a stronger need for proper sanitation.
