If you’ve ever experienced a natural disaster such as a hurricane, flood or a tornado, you know how terrifying and devastating that experience can be. While you won’t have control over the wrath of Mother Nature, you can control how you prepare yourself for such an occurrence. It is of the utmost importance to make sure that you and your family are prepared in your home with home survival kits, but under looked are kits that of the ones for your car in case you are stranded, and for the office in case you’re unable to leave work. For public schools, you want to be sure that you have the proper materials so that each student is prepared as much as possible. And last but certainly not least, be sure to take care of your pet’s safety and security as well.
At More Prepared, we offer survival kits that cover 1 person, 2-3 people or 4 or more people. The single person kits are ideal for the college student that doesn’t have a lot of room to store things, or for one person in a studio apartment. There are several storage/carrying options available, such as cooler bags and backpacks.
Keeping Your Pets Safe
Too many times, pet owners evacuate areas and sadly abandon their dogs and cats, sometimes unknowingly. This is mainly due to the fact that most shelters do not allow pets indoors. You might run out of food for them or be unable to obtain poop bags in the event of a disaster. In addition, first aid kits are different for dogs and cats than they are for people, so make sure to choose a survival kit with all of the right items.
Car Survival Kits
A fact of modern life is that many people are in their cars for several hours each and every day. When disaster strikes, you might not have time to make it home to get all of the items you need for survival. You might want to consider storing a survival kit in your trunk that contains some of the larger kits you might have at home. Pick a car survival kit that is able to withstand high heat or cold temperatures.
If you’re caught in a natural disaster at home, at least you have all of the comforts of being at home. In the event that you’re stuck at work during a disaster, it’s important to have a proper survival kit so you and your employees can sustain yourselves until you’re able to evacuate.
In a perfect world, there would be no natural disasters or tragic emergencies. But with survival emergency kits from More Prepared, you’ll at least have the peace of mind to know that you’re protected and as ready as you can be. All of our kits have a 5-year shelf life, so you know you’re covered for a while. National agencies like FEMA and the Red Cross recommend that you have these types of kits just in case because you can never be too safe.
