The 2015-2016 El Niño is forecast to become one of the strongest on record, bringing much needed rain and snow pack to the lower half of the United States, coast-to-coast. How can something so good become something we’re worried about? Well, maybe the old adage, “everything in moderation”, applies here. It doesn’t sound like we’re going to get a whole lot of “moderation” in these storms and the projected strength of the systems could negatively impact areas that have experienced major fires over the past year as well as areas naturally prone to flooding. Lakes and rivers could experience an unprecedented rise in water levels – causing flash flooding and swifter than normal water run-off.
In anticipation of very wet Winter and Spring seasons and the potential hazards associated with them, L.N. Curtis & sons has produced a Water Rescue Equipment Catalog focused on top brands and equipment for emergency responders. Additional brands and tools are available—just give us a call.
