John To Go Emergency Porta Potty Services in Florida

Be Prepared for Natural Disasters

Florida is known for its lovely, year-round temperatures, gorgeous sights, and a plethora of fun outdoor activities. It is also a state that is prone to natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, wildfires, and tropical storms. Being prepared for emergencies is important. John To Go can you help you deal with these storms to mitigate stress in a stressful situation. Below, you will find essential info on how John To Go is there to assist with your natural disaster needs.

Quick Facts on Florida Natural Disasters

Flooding

Florida’s combination of flat terrain, rising sea level, and excessive rainfall mean that it’s the likliest state to flood. Floods occur most often during major storm events that produce heavy amounts of rainfall over short periods of time.

Hurricanes

Hurricanes are a natural disaster that leave much damage in their wake. Hurricane season starts around June 1st, when the ocean water temperature starts rising, and lasts until temps begin to drop around the end of October.

Wildfires

Wildfires are fearsome from March to June. During these months, the air is dry, and there is more dead and fire-prone vegetation in the area. Heavy rainfall is typically combined with lightning strikes, which ignite fires that are fueled by plants and vegetation.

Tropical Storms

Tropical storm season occurs from May through October. At this time, Florida sees almost 70% of its year-long rainfall. This is also the time for pronounced winds and high temperatures, creating the perfect climate for tropical storms.

Be Prepared for florida natural disasters

Most residents of Florida are adequately prepared with first aid kits, plenty of food and water, and other essentials. However, in the instance where there are wide-scale evacuations, wide-scale intervention is necessary to keep all citizen’s safe. Disaster relief sites and disaster recovery resources are essential during a state of emergency caused by natural disasters. These are typically set up by the county’s local emergency management agency, FEMA, the American Red Cross, or a combination of all three. Here, residents can find first-aid stations and shelter, typically set up in large areas, such as schools and stadiums.

John To Go is always available to help, and we’ve created a game plan to provide help when you need it most. Whether you’re preparing for a natural disaster that can be predicted, such as a hurricane, or you’re seeking assistance after the storm has brought its ruin, we can help. In fact, we proactively take steps to ensure that we are well-staffed and equipped with the maximum number of units in the areas where disaster is expected.

Natural Disaster Preparation

Hurricanes are typically predicted 5 to 7 days before they strike an area. During this time, John To Go puts an emergency plan into place. We start by gathering porta potty units, restroom trailers, sinks, and disaster relief shower trailers in a central area next to the area of expected disaster. By pooling our resources, we can ensure that we’re prepared to respond to your local needs immediately. Our local facilities are well-fortified to keep the equipment safe so that they are good to go as soon as you need them.

From there, we line up staffing to make sure operations run smoothly. Our customer service representatives are on call for when you need us, drivers are on the roads, and our operation team is at the storage facility around the clock to ensure everything goes as planned. With our units and staff at the ready, we are prepared to dispatch portable toilets, restroom rentals, shower rentals, and sinks, as soon as a relief agency contacts us.

Deploying Supplies

Preparing for a large-scale Florida emergency involves the coordination of many technical arrangements. Beyond a FEMA disaster recovery center, emergency shelter, food, and first aid, restroom trailers for disasters are often needed immediately. Government officials, response teams, utility companies, and evacuated residents are among those who are dependent on portable toilet vendors for emergency response trailer shower units. That’s where John To Go’s portable toilet emergency preparedness comes into play.

As a large supplier of porta potty rentals with a strong presence in Florida, we have all of the essential supplies ready and available to deploy, including:

Deploying Supplies image
  • Our units can hold as many as 2, 3, 5, 8, or 10 individuals at a time. Our selection of trailers enable you to serve both large and small crowds of people that have been misplaced.

  • We have several styles of standard porta potties to choose from, all of which can be utilized in an emergency such as a natural disasters. We also offer handicapped units to service the wheechair-bound users, as well as premium flushing units with wash and flush capabilities.

  • Staying healthy while remaining safe from a natural disaster is imperative. That’s why we have many hand-washing and sanitizing stations that can be deployed to your rescue station or shelter.

  • Allowing people a sense of normalcy during a natural disaster is imperative, especially as people are evacuated from their homes for extended amounts of time. A shower trailer allows both displaced people and rescue volunteers to freshen up and retain their dignity.

  • It may be challenging - if not impossible - to find access to freshwater during a natural disaster. The freshwater tanks will provide you with a supply of water for drinking and cleaning.

  • These portable rechargeable floodlights take seconds to set up, yet they offer high-lumen floodlight beams that can powerfully brighten an area where disaster relief and recovery efforts are taking place.

On Site Setup

John To Go takes steps to ensure we can provide relief to residents. Here’s how we do it:

  • Select the best location for placement of units

    Our staff understands the importance of finding the right spot for each shower, restroom, and porta potty. The area should be flat (asphalt or concrete is best), and the site should not be in a position where water accumulates or gets absorbed (such as on the grass), where our 5-15K pound heavy trailers will sink over time.

  • Supply power and water to the units

    When a site has power and water supply, we’ll connect them to the trailers to get them up and running. If these are unavailable due to the natural disaster, John To Go will supply the units with generators and water tanks.

Maintenance

  • Maintenance/Cleaning

    We pride ourselves on keeping our units fully stocked and well-maintained to provide disaster victimes and rescue volunteers the highest level of service. We generally clean our 
toilet units on a weekly basis, but you can request multiple cleanings weekly and we’ll be 
happy to accomodate.

  • Gray Water (Wastewater) Pumping

    We pump wastewater for all John To Go porta potties and trailers. Upon request, we can also pump any other trailer or RV set up within the disaster relief area.
