Sept. 1, 2008 -- Disaster Kleenup International, North America's largest disaster restoration contracting organization, today announced that DKI CAT is fully prepared to assist in hurricane preparation and disaster planning, as well as damage clean up and full restoration, for the U.S. landfall of Hurricane Gustav.

  To aid with storm preparation, DKI CAT, DKI's Catastrophe Response Team, has created an informational website, 

  The site, created in the wake of major hurricanes in 2004, offers numerous tips for property owners and managers on how to prepare weeks and months before a storm hits, what to do when a storm is identified as being on a path to potentially affect one's property, and how to protect one's own personal safety.  The website also assists property owners and managers in taking inventory of their situation after the storm has left, and identifies sources of appropriate relief.  Additionally, there are helpful links to aid agencies and other resources, such as FEMA, the American Red Cross, and DKI, that can deliver necessary aid. 

  DKI's national catastrophe response unit maintains the industry's largest inventory of emergency services equipment and the largest labor pool in the U.S.  For those seeking to prepare before a storm, DKI also works collaboratively with property owners and managers to develop pre-disaster plans to further mitigate the costs of future catastrophes.
