"When I looked at the devastation of the tsunamis and the situation after Hurricane Katrina, I realized that the time delay in getting bottled water is extreme. Stockpiling a 21 day supply of water is simply not feasible. If you are vulnerable to geological or water events, I recommend the solutions from First Water."

The systems we manufacture range in capacity from 60 gallon per hour to 1,200 gallons per hour and operate off a variety of power sources, including solar. The appropriate assortment of equipment can give any size community of facility both the portability and volume they need to successfully mitigate a water disruption.
Why You Need an Emergency Water Solution
Emergency managers are trusted with the safety and well being of the community they serve. Potable water is critical to providing essential services to that population. Hydration, hygiene, food service, laundry, and medical care are just a few examples. Your supply of clean, safe water can be compromised in routine events such as broken water mains, boil water advisories or routine maintenance operations. Larger scale events such as tornados, hurricanes and earthquakes can not only compromise your water supply but also damage transportation infrastructures critical for resupply.
A water purification solution from First Water allows you to remain self-sufficient and produce potable water on-site from a variety of fresh water sources. Utilizing swimming pools, fire trucks, or irrigation wells, you can provide safe drinking water without relying on external sources. Additionally, water purification systems support many functions bottled water can not. Showering, dialysis, and food preparation are just a few examples of critical operations bottled water can not serve.
