Ready America to Supply Emergency Drinking Water for NYC
Ready America, a leading disaster supply business, is pleased to announce that it has been chosen to supply emergency drinking water to the city of New York.  In a major announcement for the southern California-based company, New York City Emergency Management (NYCEM) has contracted Ready America to replenish its supplies of emergency drinking water through 2022.  The Aqua Literz and Aqua Blox drinking water will be provided to NYCEM as part of its stock pile of emergency relief supplies, which ordinarily includes more than one million liters of water.

"This order for emergency drinking water is enough to hydrate more than 500,000 people in the event of a disaster," said Ready America CEO Dean Reese. "And it eliminates the need for costly bottled water rotation every 12 months to two years."  Dean Reese may be reached via email at dean@readyamerica.com
