The global need for disaster relief systems is immeasurable. Headwater can advise and/or engineer disaster relief platforms for hospitals, military operations, emergency response, and preparedness, critical infrastructure and public buildings, commercial and residential buildings and asset-stressed regions. We provide uniquely appropriate solutions for disasters, emergency preparedness and response, domestically and globally.


Headwater disaster and emergency relief systems can be designed to serve the U.S. and other nations’ militaries for use in disaster and emergency situations and in war zones to supply troops.

When disasters strike, as occurred this year with devastating earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, and the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, generally the military only has the manpower, equipment, and logistics abilities to execute large scale, organized and effective rescue and relief missions. Headwater systems, rapidly deliverable anywhere, will be important and effective additions to the military’s arsenal of critical emergency response tools – for saving disaster victims and supporting soldiers working in the area.

Emergency Response

Headwater provides expert advisory services, design, engineering  and systems solutions for specific disaster response needs anywhere in the world. Our systems are also being designed for rapid military deployment in war-torn and remote locations.

Headwater fulfills an essential need for improved disaster responsiveness by major hospitals, the U.S. military, government agencies, and nations. The greatest improvement to disaster responsiveness is what is done before a disaster occurs. Headwater’s approach and methods promote and contribute to a culture of preparedness to save lives.

Disaster Preparedness


Headwater provides expert advisory services to hospitals, nations, states, cities, companies, and institutions focused on solutions to both sides of catastrophic events – before and following disasters.


Water Scarcity

Water scarcity and water-stressed nations are rapidly increasing. India, for example, is home to 17% of the world’s population and only 2% of its water supply. China is estimated to have 300 million people living in severe water-stressed conditions. By latest estimates, 1.1 billion people live without clean drinking water.  According to UNICEF, 2.6 billion people lack adequate sanitation. Headwater endeavors to be part of the solution to these serious global problems. The company provides uniquely qualified services and products to address water related crises facing our world.
