BENEFITS & DESCRIPTION
Storing an Emergency Survival Kit in your home is an essential part of preparing your family to shelter-in-place following a disaster. Assembling a survival kit can be daunting so we have simplified the process by packing everything a family of four will need to survive the aftermath of a disaster into an easy-to-store 5-gallon bucket. Many people fail to realize that store-bought items such as canned food and bottled water may not store safely for longer than one year, especially when stored in environments subjected to extreme temperature fluctuations i.e. a garage or vehicle. Reference blog post “Maintaining Emergency Rations” in the ER™ Preparedness Blog for more information. ER™ Survival Kits are designed by emergency preparedness experts to contain the most critical supplies needed during the aftermath of a major disaster. Each kit includes a 72-hour supply of food and water for up to two people. The ER™ 2400 Calorie Food Bars and ER™ Water Pouches are certified by the U.S. Coast Guard to store safely for up to 5-years even when exposed to extreme temperatures (-22°F to 149°F, -6°C to 65°C). The kit also comes equipped with an ER™ Solar/Hand-Crank Powered NOAA Weather Band, AM/FM digital Radio, Flashlight, and USB charger all in one compact device. Simply recharge the device using the hand-crank or solar panel. The built-in USB charger will power iPhones, Droids and Pixels or any device that uses a USB cable to charge ensuring you stay in touch with loved ones or emergency contacts.
The survival items are packaged in a sealed 5-gallon container for strategic survival and storage advantages. The water-resistant container stores safely anywhere inside or outside your home and can be used for emergency sanitation purposes with the included snap-on toilet seat.
Why do you need a survival kit at home?
Following a catastrophic disaster in your area, you could find yourself in desperate need of basic necessities such as food, water, shelter or medical supplies. In a worst-case scenario electricity may be out for weeks, water treatment plants could stop producing potable water or your home may suffer structural damage leaving you exposed to the elements. You or loved ones may suffer injuries and need immediate medical treatment at a time when there might not be medical professionals available. The key to survival is self-sufficiency. Paramedics or disaster relief organizations such as the Red Cross may not be able to administer aid for several days or more. The more prepared your family is in advance of a major disaster, the better your odds are of surviving it. Think of preparedness as an insurance plan for your family’s survival.
