Natural disasters often leave critical infrastructures and utilities compromised. Water is a primary need for any community or facility in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. It is necessary not only of immediate survival, but also for efficient recovery. The ability to provide safe drinking water to impacted citizens, emergency personnel, and community infrastructure will greatly improve any response.
First Water is proud to be emergency water purification partners with the Kentucky Hospital Association. We have worked to develop a regional solution to support Kentucky hospitals during disasters like the current ice storm. Water purifiers capable of treating up to 1,200 gallons per hour coupled with Chlorine injection systems provide the state with a comprehensive solution that is easy to deploy as needed.
In support of the KHA, First Water has deployed personnel and assets to the area impacted by the ice storm. We are staged for support in any water disruption that may be encountered.
