Add a Dumpster to Your Tornado Preparedness Plan

Add a Dumpster to Your Tornado Preparedness Plan

According to the University of Winnipeg, tornadoes are most probable from May through August, with June and July being the most likely months for the weather event to occur. There are an average of 7 to 10 tornadoes within our neck of the province each year, which makes it a very real threat to homes and commercial properties. Consequently, property owners are advised to remain on alert throughout the spring and summer months. While primary focus must be placed on ensuring personal safety and protecting property, a comprehensive tornado preparedness plan should also factor in recovery from the fallout. Immediate debris cleanup is of great importance as it assists with assessing damage and clears residential, commercial, and public spaces from hazardous obstacles. It also provides an opportunity for mental and emotional healing for those who may experience trauma from the dramatic weather incident. An integral component to post-tornado cleanup is a dumpster rental. While you can wait to secure one or more as required for after the passing of a tornado, we suggest that renting one when they have been forecast (monitor alerts for Winnipeg here) is the most diligent strategy. Please read ahead to learn more.

Why Winnipeg MB Property Owners Should Make Affordable Bins a Part of Their Tornado Preparedness Plan this Season

Post-Tornado Cleanup of Debris

“A tornado is a violently rotating column of air extending from a thunderstorm to the ground. The most violent tornadoes are capable of tremendous destruction with wind speeds of 500 km/h. What makes a tornado dangerous is that its energy is concentrated in a small area, perhaps only a hundred meters across. Tornadoes can uproot trees, destroy buildings, and turn harmless objects into deadly missiles.”
