When natural disasters strike, there are a few options that we are left. If the state or the government hasn’t taken any pre-disaster measures, it is likely that most people will be in a terrible state, depending on the magnitude of the disaster. In the first world, equipment is so advanced that governments already know when certain hurricanes, storms or floods re coming their way. They already warn their citizens to evacuate certain areas and then help is given to the affected. Even in such organized states, there is total chaos when disaster strikes because there are very few things that can actually compete with the forces of nature. Now imagine how bad the situation is for third world countries or countries that are ravaged by civil war and has displaced millions on individuals.
Keeping in mind all of this, there are international charity organizations that aim to provide all kinds of, mostly physical and immediate, relief to the people affected by these disasters. Because natural disasters first destroy the infrastructure of any place, they obviously cause irreversible damage. When the infrastructure of any place has been demolished beyond control and recognition, that’s where problems arise. The biggest issue is to provide immediate shelter to people who have been displaced. The international communities have therefore sanctioned certain materials and objects that are useful in such situations and one of them is tarp. Tarpaulin manufacturers around the world make these long, flexible sheets of varying materials that withstand harsh weather conditions. They can be used to provide shelter to people and to supplies in places where the weather is unpredictable. They usually make great tents.
Tarp also has many other uses, such as providing the necessary shelter needed for greenhouses and controlled environment. Cattle can be protected by tarp in rainy situations as long as the cattle don’t ingest it. However the biggest market for tarpaulin manufacturers is natural disaster victims and international relief providing companies and organizations. It is produced in large quantities and is subject to international standards because of its imperative need and its vast usage by regular people. Other relief items include tents, repair kits, blankets, clothing, etc. and they are also subject to the standards set by UNHRC since these international standards help keep the quality of the products in check. Though we cannot fight natural disasters full on, we can at least be brave enough to face them.
