Chest Waders for Flood Salvage

8921835?1363043028
Chest waders are used primarily for fishing, but are invaluable for salvage after a flood. And rescue during a flood.  They range in price from $60.00 U.S. to $250.00 U.S.  Walmart has a nice selection. You have probably bought more than you need, but after hurricane Sandy these waders sold out and were unavailable at any price. Remember that in a flood there may be large holes where the earth has washed out so walk carefully, and preferably use a long pole to probe ahead if walking over an unfamiliar area.

Waders come in dozens of different sizes, and to get a pair that fits well, you often have to order in advance. If you are involved in salvage or rescue always use a safety-line attached to you and your partner, ESPECIALLY in moving water.  Take one step at a time VERY carefully. If exploring an area where the water is of unknown depth consider wearing a wader plus a life jacket.
