Hurricane Equipment & Emergency Response

Weather is unpredictable. Xylem is not.

The official hurricane season in the United States takes place from May through November, with the peak season from mid-August to late October. Xylem can help make sure you are prepared.

Well in advance of catastrophic weather events, Xylem works with cities, counties and companies to create contingency plans that map out emergency response strategies and identify the required pumping equipment to react to natural disasters.

If you are not sure how to create and activate a contingency plan, now is the time to learn. When hurricanes hit, it’s hard to keep calm and come up with a plan. The key is to be weather-ready, and a good place to start is to watch our on-demand webinar. Over the course of one-half hour, Xylem’s Hunter Powell provides you with expert advice on contingency planning to minimize damage and protect your operations from flooding and storm surges – the most devastating one-two punch in any hurricane event.

Emergency response is at the heart of what we do. We have been responding to weather related events for over 35 years, and turnkey installations are our specialty. Let us prove to you that we are the most reliable and responsive team for disaster recovery in the industry.

We'll work with you to create a plan of action in case disaster strikes, because we:

  • Have the right equipment for the job. With a broad portfolio of pumps and water management equipment, no one offers a wider selection than Xylem. We also offer rental equipment, which is a great fit for emergency flood and emergency sewer bypass situations.
  • Have a reliable system that works. Because we design and build our own equipment, we understand how it works best and create systems to match equipment to the needs of communities dealing with the aftermath of hurricanes.
  • Have a support team committed to your safety and success. The experienced Xylem team provides contingency plans, turnkey services, and a large inventory of equipment to meet your needs. We are here to help build your flood relief contingency plan ahead of the storm and we are ready to respond when wet weather disasters strike. 

24/7 Emergency Response

When hurricanes and major storms cause flooding, Xylem has the capability of responding at any hour with portable pumping equipment that operates independent of the electric power grid to remove floodwaters from critical infrastructure areas or to keep your sewage collection systems operational.

No matter where you are in the US, we have a location near you. Our network of branches and distributors will work to deploy equipment and support whenever and wherever it's needed.

With a disaster preparedness plan from Xylem, you can act instead of react.
