Flood disaster preparedness – Why Hov Pod?

Flood Disaster Preparedness has never been more important than now, though it is difficult to prepare victims for the destruction and devastation of a flood. During floods property and possessions will be lost and safety is threatened. Flood rescues are a very difficult task for search and rescue vehicles, as boats are unable to maneuver efficiently and trucks can be swept away in as little as 12 inches of water and they are unable to drive through the floodwaters.

This is why Hov Pod Hovercraft should be part of any local government flood disaster preparedness plan. Hov Pod can make all of the difference in the world in saving lives as they are able to get close to victims, pull them from the water and take them to safety.

Real World Flood disaster preparedness

The assistance of a Hov Pod during flooding can make a huge difference in these situations. As Hov Pod have no propellers, they do not risk being critically damaged and thus useless to the aid initiative. Although large debris can prove to be difficult to navigate and sometimes make rescue missions futile, operators of Hov Pod have little to worry about in this regard.

Smaller floating debris, like plastic bags, litter, broken up furniture and fencing can be easily passed over with a Hov Pod. As opposed to a boat would risk getting plastic and other garbage stuck in its propellers and breaking down the craft entirely. Hov Pod is also able to fly over shallow and fast-moving moving water, and through rapidly changing levels of flooding to rescue any victims of the flood quickly.

Hov Pod hovercraft are the perfect addition to any flood disaster preparedness plan because during flooding Hov Pod can meet all of the demands and make a huge impact in these dangerous natural disasters.

Federal Flood Disaster Preparedness Order

Per Executive Order (EO) 13653, the impacts of climate change -- including an increase in prolonged periods of extreme temperatures, heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise -- are already affecting communities, economies, and public health across the nation. These impacts are often most significant for communities that already face economic or health-related challenges.  

Managing these risks requires preparation, close cooperation, and coordinated planning by the Federal Government, as well as by stakeholders, to facilitate federal, state, local, tribal, private-sector, and nonprofit-sector efforts to improve climate change preparedness and resilience.  These activities are designed to help safeguard our economy, infrastructure, environment, and natural resources, and provide for the continuity of executive department and agency operations, services, and programs.  The Department of Labor is actively engaged in the coordinated federal efforts to enhance climate change preparedness and resilience.  Don't settle for a hovercraft, own a Hov Pod.
