Flood Plan Components

Label Your Tanks

Label all tanks with your name and location. In a recent flood, an agricultural retailer lost 35 fuel tanks that were washed downstream. The dealer was able to find all but one of his tanks, because each had a sticker with the company’s name and phone number. Sticker all tanks, large and small, at initial installation. You may even want to label 55-gallon drums.
