In The Beginning
In October of 2012 Hurricane Sandy was headline news in every media outlet. Sandy was more than just news. Sandy impacted the lives of millions and resulted in 285 deaths worldwide and 62 billion dollars in damage and 125 deaths in the United States alone. Hurricane Sandy impacted public water systems leaving many without access to water that was safe to drink.
Observing the devastation created by Hurricane Sandy, Mick Benson recognized the need for emergency water in the event of a disaster and was troubled by the fact that existing water storage tanks required significant maintenance to ensure that water was safe to drink. He was faced with the stark reality that the maintenance required is often neglected and that people were simply uneducated regarding the maintenance required to insure that emergency water supplies are sufficiently sanitary for use when needed.
New Company Born
Recognizing that the most important resource during a disaster is water Mick, an Engineer by trade and President of Global Research and Technology Corporation, designed the patent pending LifeTank. Soon after, the subsidiary company Life Systems Group, Inc., a California Corporation, was launched to bring this new and exciting solution for emergency water storage to residential, corporate, educational, governmental, and non-profit customers.
While water is the most important resource needed during a disaster, once this need is met, other resources are required as well. So Life Systems Group has a mission to bring a variety of life supporting products to those who need them. The Company is committed to providing products that can be depended upon when they are really needed. We may not always provide the lowest price solution but durability and dependability will always be hallmarks of our products.
