Our mission to provide the best quality crisis supplies and equipment all started when Hurricane Ike came ashore in Texas on September 13. 2008. No one could’ve foreseen the destruction that would follow. In just a few hours, everything changed along the Texas Coast. Being in North Houston, the damage wasn’t as catastrophic as it was along the coast, but there was still damage. We lost power for an entire week. In other areas, it was worse, 21 days or longer.
