With January coming to an end we are heading into peak winter storm season. The weather activity over the past few years has been unpredictable and destructive. In order to properly prepare for the worst, we need to look at natural disasters objectively and ensure we are covered on all fronts. The below product guide is designed to give you reliable options and recommendations to best combat anything nature may throw your way.
In an emergency event one of the most basic and important needs is Food. Every living thing requires sustenance and without it, conditions can become severe quickly. We offer a large collection of cooking tools, gadgets and stoves that do not rely on conventional means to operate.
A great cooking tool is our Large Stainless Steel Base Camp Kettle. This high-quality stainless-steel kettle will allow you to quickly boil up to 6 cups of water, make hot drinks, re-hydrate food or prepare a meal without requiring use of gas or electricity!
For something slightly more advanced, we have the GoSun Sport Solar Oven. This amazing device uses compound parabolic reflectors to convert sunlight into usable heat for cooking, boiling, baking and steaming. You can cook tasty Soups, Breads, Veggies and Meats without any expendable fuel source. Perfect for Preppers and chefs alike. I personally keep one with my stash of survival supplies.
Water Storage and Filtration
Water is the most essential element to life. At least 60% of the adult body is made of water and without this basic need our bodies cannot function. One should always have a backup plan for accessing clean, drinkable water.
One of my absolute favorite new products is the Katadyn Pocket Micro Water Filter. This fantastic little device allows the user to take clear, cloudy or extremely dirty water and make clean, safe, drinkable water on the go. It is designed for very frequent use and can clean up to 50,000 liters of water in its lifespan. Did I mention the 20 year warranty? This is a must have for any survival kit.
Accessibility to water is just as important as consumption. The average American family goes through more than 300 gallons of water per day. Which brings me to my next must have; the WaterBrick Stackable Water Containers. Not just for water use, the Waterbrick stores 3.5 Gallons of Liquids or up to 27 Pounds (264 Adult Servings) of Dry Foods. These unique water containers, unlike any other, can be cross stacked up to 4 feet high for maximum efficient storage. FDA approved and BPA free!
Power – 12V/ 120V/ 240V
Power may be one of the most important necessities in 2019. Almost every aspect of our lives revolves around electricity and technology. From passing of information to basic necessities such as environmental temperature control. Not only is back up power important on its own, but it’s the driving force behind several other basic needs. We highly recommend having a backup plan in the event of a power outage or grid failure.
The Goal Zero Yeti 1000 Lithium Portable Solar Generator Kit is a great portable power solution at a reasonable price point. This unit allows the user to power their 12V and 120V items (220V model available) while having access to replenish-able power via the included 100 Watt Solar panel. Practical and compact, the Yeti Generator weighs in at a manageable 40 lbs. Easy to store for later use, the unit is only 10.1" x 15.3" x 9.3" inches, allowing it to fit nicely in any closet, garage or storm shelter for when you need it most.
If the Yeti 1000 doesn’t fit your needs, we have an entire section dedicated to solar generators. Featuring units of all sizes and power requirements. Click Here to check it out.
Emergency Storm Shelters and Bunkers
Shelter is a very important basic need of survival. While certain areas of the world are more exposed to shelter related threats, it is still very important to be prepared for the worst. With Tornado Season just around the corner, we have started receiving numerous phone calls from concerned people looking for protection.
The TornadoSafe Certified Storm Shelters are available in three different designs and offer protection against a wide array of natural disasters; including Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Intruders, and many more Destructive events. Currently the Underground Garage Shelter is the most popular and a great place to store all of your prepper supplies.
We could talk all day about great items to include in your emergency preparedness supply kit. From Faraday Bags/Cages for EMP protection to Hand crank and Solar Flashlights. We will do our best to spotlight a few more items/categories in a future article.
There are many uncertainties in the world, and it pays to be prepared. We value our client’s safety and only offer products that will prove reliable and well made. As always, we are just a phone call away (877-548-3387) and are happy to offer our expertise on all of your Emergency Preparedness needs!
