PRESS RELEASE: USING WATER TO FIGHT WATER.
U.S. Flood Control Corp.Awarded Highest Level Certification for Perimeter Barrier Flood Protection
This designation was awarded after rigorous testing by The Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) and FM Approvals, a leading certification and testing services company for commercial property risk mitigation products.
Perimeter barrier performance testing was conducted at the US Army Corps of Engineers’ Engineering and Research Development Center (ERDC) located in Vicksburg, MS.
During testing, Tiger Dams™, the world’s most rigorously tested reusable flood control product, were set up in 1/5 the time of sandbags at less than 1/3 the cost and vehemently withstood high velocity riverine currents, giant logs, underwent intensive wave testing and were over-topped without failure.

GET PREPARED FOR THE FLOOD SEASON BY USING THE WORLD’S #1 FLOOD PROTECTION PRODUCT.
U.S. / International Flood Control Corp. is “THE Sandbag Replacement Company” – protect property without sandbags.
Tiger Dam™ is completely reusable, and is the ONLY system patented to connect together to create an impervious barrier for miles, in any shape (circles, 90 degrees turns etc.) and is the ONLY system that is stackable, from 19 inches to 32 ft. in height.
Tiger Dams™ are 1/2 the price of sandbags on their first use. Each dam replaces 500 sandbags. Tiger Dams™ protect our environment with no environmental damage.
Tiger Dams are water filled bladder technology, when deployed properly, this system may be able to divert up to 100% of floodwaters. Our System can be assembled within minutes using floodwaters or any water source.
Tiger Dams fill in as little as 90 seconds, with minimal man power and no heavy equipment. Each tube weighs 65 lbs. dry and 6300 lbs. when filled with water. They roll up for easy storage after each deployment.
The Tiger Dam™ system is unique, affordable and effective. The pyramid shaped structure forms a barrier to create temporary dykes, protect critical infrastructure, divert river flow, keep roads open and protect essential utilities….among a host of other applications.
Our patented Tiger Dam™ System is the only thing you may need for any future flooding problems.
2011 was the costliest year on record for disasters with estimated global losses of US$380 billion and beyond 2013, disaster losses set to outpace economic growth with expected global disaster losses to hit US$500 billion. It is pertinent to focus on best practices on natural disasters prevention and effective respond across Asia Pacific, Middle East, Europe and the region, in order to minimize future losses. Be updated on latest technology and natural disasters prevention’s construction and state-of-the art flood prevention as well as solution to optimizing earthquake mitigation.
Disaster losses in across Asia Pacific, Middle East, Europe and the region are likely to rise faster than economic growth unless there is an effective disaster relief and recovery strategy. Damaged caused by disasters, such as floods and earthquakes, is outpacing wealth creation. Economic exposure to disasters is increasing faster than per capita gross domestic product and the impacts of climate change on the severity and frequency of hazards will further accentuate trends in disaster losses in the future. As such, average global economic disaster losses have risen by 200 percent over the last 25 years. 2011 was the costliest year on record for disasters with estimated global losses of US$380 billion. The most expensive events included the Japan earthquake and tsunami and floods in Thailand which affected industrial areas as well as the magnitude 9.0 Tohoku earthquake on 11 March 2011 and the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake of a magnitude 6.3 as well as the recent flood in China in 2011, leaving a total of over 36 million people have been affected, killing at least 355 and with direct economic losses.
