An emergency evacuation plan is a necessity for all facilities, no matter what types of disasters commonly impact your area. A facility’s evacuation plan typically includes steps to exit buildings and local evacuation routes, but physically moving people isn’t the only concern you need to include. In any disaster scenario, access to nutritious food and water is critical – does your emergency evacuation plan account for these needs?
Providing delicious, nutritious food during or after an emergency evacuation is one way facilities and families can reduce stress during a chaotic time. Meals for All can help make your evacuation process streamlined and simple:
- Meals for All’s disaster food supply has a 10-year shelf life. No need to check to see if food has expired as you are running out the door in an emergency.
- Each case of Meals for All food is only about 15 pounds. Our stackable, low-profile cases allow for easy transport from your home or facility.
- Your food will be safe to eat once you’ve evacuated. Heavy-duty #10 cans minimize the danger of spills, punctures, and contamination during what could be a chaotic time.
- Everyone can stay nourished. Meals for All‘s easy-to-modify plan ensures you have enough food for facility residents, staff, or your family — even those with specific dietary needs.
The final item on your evacuation list should be plenty of emergency water. Blue Can Water is purified, sterilized, and hermetically sealed in aluminum cans to ensure freshness for up to 50 years. Easily stacked and transported, Blue Can Water also comes in a wide variety of cases and pallets sized to meet your hydration needs.
