Note Ordering Cots During a Disaster:
Understand that manufacturers don't have thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of cots and blankets sitting in warehouses waiting for the next disaster. Much of the disaster supplies they do have on-hand are already on contract for agencies that did plan for an emergency.
During a Disaster:
A.) Any available stock will go very quickly Please know that most existing stock is committed to FEMA or other agencies.
B.) Is on a first-come, first-serve basis - based upon payment.
C.) Usually will be gone within 24-48 hours.
Disaster contractors know this when they sign agency contracts, but still try to order only when the disaster strikes. Large disasters occur around the country almost every month. Manufacturers also can't ramp up to meet a large request and fabricate finished product in days. Our reason for pointing this out, is that since cots need o be deployed within hours of a disaster announcement, your organization / agency should plan for, budget, order and locally store emergency supplies like disaster cots before a disaster strikes your community. .
