Shelter Boxes are containers that typically include enough emergency supplies to sustain 10 people in the event of a disaster. These boxes are distributed by an aid agency of the same name. The contents will provide shelter as well as life-saving equipment during these crises. This agency supplies this valued box in response to cyclones, earthquake, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis and volcano disasters that occur worldwide.
Wind generators can be tower mounted or mounted to the roof of a building, as a house, shed or barn. Using a tower mount is the most expensive but puts less wear and tear on a roof. Probably, depending on the type, the roof wear would not amount to the several thousand dollars extra invested in a tower. Also location of the buildings, wind speed and trees, etc will help determine where to place the generator. A wind speed test will need to be preformed before the exact location is found.
Be sure to lubricate all moving surfaces with oil, WD-40™ or a dry film lubricant (You can use a light grease on the two lead screws, but if you grease the sliding rail, I think you'll find that the grease will probably be a sawdust magnet!). Be sure to lubricate all sliding or rotating joints and connectors, especially those added washers on the legs where they mount to the sideplates.
The first step to preparing for a shipment is selecting a handling unit that allows for your item(s) to be transported efficiently and safely. A handling unit is considered a forklift-ready preparation of the item to be shipped with. Oftentimes, the slot where forklifts and pallet jacks are inserted under the freight is called "cribbing". In a lot of cases, however, large items to be loaded on a flatbed truck can just be hoisted on to the truck with a forklift or other loading equipment and moved as a piece and strapped to the platform appropriately (and possibly even covered with tarps for weather protection). Sometimes, ramps may even be available to drive or move vehicles or equipment on to the truck bed. In general cases when you need to palletize the shipment, standard pallets most commonly suffice to accommodate the handling of the items, but the following is an extensive list of the types of shipping handling units:
Two types of systems are available; grid-tie and stand alone. If the grid-tie is considered, make sure to determine if the wind or wind-solar system will function even if the utility power goes off. Some will still operate and some do not. I don't think I would want to spend thousands of dollars on an auxiliary wind or solar system for emergencies only to find that it would not generate electricity without the power grid up and running.
If an air compressor is out of the question, then may I suggest a 20-gallon shop-vac. Oh, don't look at me like that. I am so serious. Men might not know why, but they really need one. You can tell when you take them into that aisle at Home Depot. They stop and look longingly at it with a half smile. It may not get used weekly, but then you just might be surprised. A shop-vac may give him a reason to clean out the vehicles.
