Be Prepared for Flooding

Be Prepared for Flooding

Preparedness is one of the most important when trying to prevent flooding.

After incurring damage during Hurricane Irma, the Cummer Museum in Jacksonville Florida realized that they were in a very vulnerable spot and more prone to flooding.

They turned to US Flood control to bring Tiger Dam  to Jacksonville and set up a perimeter to protect the museum from the projected onslaught of Hurricane Damian.

Thankfully the course of the hurricane turned and Jacksonville was not hit and the museum now has a Tiger Dam™ world class flood protection system that can be implemented if needed in the future.

US Flood Control & Tiger Dam are on call 24/7 and can be reached for emergency at 866-852-1118
