We know ice is more than just a product of convenience, it’s a survival tool. Whether it is hurricane, tornado, earthquake, flood or other natural calamity, it is bound to wreak havoc on people and communities. Packaged Ice has become a necessity during the time of these disasters due to unavailability of clean water and electrical supplies. While providing cool comfort and relief, packaged ice is often a critical part of recovery efforts. Following a natural disaster or emergency, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manage the procurement of critical commodities, like packaged ice and bottled water, along with the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA), the Salvation Army, and the Red Cross as part of the federal government’s unified national response. Some states are very much involved in the supply chain process of delivering emergency ice in addition to the Army Corps, FEMA, and other disaster relief organizations.
How does Reddy Ice help?
At Reddy Ice, we are proud to offer disaster relief support. Being International Packaged Ice Association (IPIA) certified ensures that our Packaged Ice is safe and pure. We are also members of E-ICE, Electronic Emergency Ice System which allows IPIA to know the local inventory we carry at any given time (how much, where and whether trucking is available and how fast it can get loaded). A centralized system links our network of production and distribution facilities. These establishments have plans in place to make ice readily available in the affected areas.
Reddy Ice for Emergency Ice Management
If you need ice for your Emergency Management solutions, you can trust IPIA certified Reddy Ice for clean, food–quality packaged ice in times of disaster.
Thank you for doing such a great job keeping us stocked with ice during the aftermath of Hurricane Laura. The late summer heat of this area poses a major health and safety risk to those trying to restore power, return home and start putting these communities back together. Reddy Ice has done their part to provide a critical resource to Southwest Texas and Southwest Louisiana during this trying time.
