There's no time like the present to make sure you're prepared for a flood. As April approaches, and more rainfall finds itself in southwest Connecticut forecasts, knowing what to do now can have potentially life-saving results later on. The Westport Office of Emergency Management and National Weather Service have teamed up for National Flood Safety Awareness Week to promote tips on taking precautions and acting safety during a flooding situation. "Flood Safety Awareness Week is intended to highlight some of the many ways floods can occur, the hazards associated with floods, and what you can do to save life and property," Fire Chief and Emergency Management Director Andrew Kingsbury said.
Fairfield County's average yearly rainfall total is 48 inches and its snowfall is 41 inches, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), making preparedness applicable in many instances throughout the year in Connecticut.
What does this mean for you? Well you can take a look at our wonderful TripleSafe Sump Pump, which is the best sump pump on the market. The system has a total of three pumps! The first pump runs and if it cant keep up with the water the second pump will automatically turn on and run at the same time as the first pump. With most flooding usually the power goes out in the middle of the night. Our third pump running on battery power turns on while an alarm alerts you to tell you that it's running. The third pump can pump 11,500 gallons of water which is half of a swimming pool!
Already a customer? Dont forget your yearly maintenance to make sure its running properly and doesnt need to be cleaned.
