Hurricane Preparedness Supplies May be in Short Supply this Season

The hurricane season is still months away but Disaster Relief Supply, an emergency preparedness supplier on the Gulf Coast, is already seeing shortages of essential items. Now is the time to start preparing for the hurricane season while supplies are plentiful and the prices are right.

The hurricane season is still months away but ignoring the inevitable may be more of a tragedy than the hurricane itself. Hurricanes and hurricane preparedness have become part of a lifestyle living near the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic coast. The Gulf Coast has been spared for the past couple of years but with the warm winter (and warm waters of the Gulf) this year, hurricane preparedness should be on the top of the “to do” list.

Disaster Relief Supply in Destin, FL has found that the high demand for many emergency survival products being stock piled for other potential disasters (economic, natural, or man-made), is already resulting in short supplies and long lead times. The Wise Corporation, who manufactures freeze dried foods, informed dealers to expect a 2 to 3 weeks lead time for new orders. Other companies, such as Briggs and Stratton, are just now shipping back orders on their larger portable generators whose shortage was caused by the demand from hurricane Irene last summer.

Human nature dictates waiting until the last minute to prepare our home and our family for a possible emergency. Dealers such as Disaster Relief Supply, who specialize in emergency preparation products, are fully stocked for the upcoming season. With many products on sale during the preseason, coupled with income tax refunds, there is no reason to wait until the last minute when prices are higher and supplies are short.

Now is the time to start preparing for hurricane season while supplies are plentiful and prices are right.
