In cities we take our basic needs for granted. Clean water, electricity, communication to anywhere in the world, access to hospital services, food, shelter, and basic hygiene are not daily concerns for most people. But time and again, we hear of disasters where, in a matter of minutes or hours, all of these essential services vanish. Is your city or village prepared?
Basic supplies can become inaccessible in emergency situations. Among supplies that are needed in an emergency, clean drinking water is by far the most pressing. Lack of water can be fatal in less than three days. It is believed that much of the violence and looting that occurred in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans was due to a lack of basic supplies, especially water.
The Innosol emergency drinking water supply devices Innosol-EDWS can produce high-quality drinking water just immediately – with no setup time, meeting the most urgent need in an emergency and helping to keep order.
The Innosol emergency water unit can also be used to protect essential services such as hospitals, during water crisis. For example, in the case of an E. coli outbreak in a public water supply, the Innosol emergency drinking water supply device can be used to provide the hospitals with clean water delivered through temporary lines, until the public system has been decontaminated. This would greatly reduce the cost of such emergency drinking water supply task comparably to using traditional filter-based water purification systems.
Another example: Occasionally, local drinking water distribution systems, such as schools, hospitals, and office buildings, become biologically contaminated. Typically this requires an extensive and time-consuming decontamination of all of the piping leading off the water main and throughout the building. In the meantime, people must rely on bottled water, which is expensive. The Innosol-EDWS technology can render this event much less disruptive. Using the Innosol analytical instrumentation Innosol-WDS, the precise location of the contamination can be determined, and then the only this specific location can be decontaminated reducing the cost of both time and money to bring the drinking water distribution system online. At the same time, the Innosol-EDWS emergency water unit can supply dwellers with drinking water while assuring 100% neutralizaiton of the said contaminaiton.
