How are you preparing for Hurricane Irma?

How are you preparing for Hurricane Irma?

Hurricane Irma Preparedness Guide

In preparation for Hurricane Irma, we wanted to provide our Doral extended community with a list of items to have on hand to best deal with the multiple outcomes the storm may levy:

The National Hurricane Center suggests the following materials:

  • Water: At least 1 gallon of water per person/ animal per day for at least 3 days.
  • Food: At least a 3-day supply of non-perishable food.
  • Radio: A battery-powered radio with NOAA weather radio tone alert and extra batteries.
  • Flashlight: Make sure you have extra batteries as well.
  • First Aid Kit
  • Manual can opener: If the electricity is out, you would need some way to open your canned food.
  • Cellphone: Make sure you have extra battery packs or a solar charger to keep your phone on.
  • Prescription medications
  • Glasses
  • Cash
  • Important family documents: Make sure you have copies of insurance policies and some form of state issued ID.
  • Sturdy shoes: Think about pulling out those rain boots and sneakers.
  • Pet supplies: Your pets will need enough food and water to also weather out the storm with you.


US MED’s Employees Host Internal Fundraiser to Aid Hurricane Harvey Victims

US MED’s Employees Host Internal Fundraiser to Aid Hurricane Harvey Victims

One of the largest, providers of Diabetes Supplies helps the victims of  Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas

“US MED is in the business of assisting people in need of care on a daily basis. This extends beyond the clinical community and into local communities. As a result, US MED has launched an internal fund raising initiative through our Employee Giving Program, to assist the victims of the Harvey hurricane,” said Chief Sales Officer Thomas Barron.

US MED will commit to providing awareness through all our social media platforms to encourage followers to donate to charitable companies such as United Way, Salvation Army or the American Red Cross to name a few. We want to reach people outside of our organization to help assist those living in Houston and surrounding affected areas.

100% of the proceeds raised on Thursday, August 31st will be provided to United Way to help during the disaster relief. We are committed to doing our part to provide assistance to the many people living in these areas.

Our organization’s is driven by a culture of dedication to family and we want to extend that to assist the families in Houston through this disaster relief. Many of our employees understand the impact a natural catastrophe can have on a community. Having lived through Hurricane Andrew and other disasters that affected South Florida, our goal as an organization is to unite everyone in a time of need and provide support back to those communities.

We are really moved by the amount of people that are currently donating and assisting victims. Stay Strong Houston!

“Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in South Texas recovering from this devastating storm. I want to thank our employees for all their contributions,” said US MED CEO Stephen Foreman.
