(PRWEB) February 27, 2003
In response to the continued state of the U.S. Terrorism Alert at level Orange, the second highest alert level, Escape-IT has added a new brochure, ÂPersonal Safety In A Scary World,Â to its set of escape and survival brochures. The new brochure contains personal survival and planning tips regarding natural disasters and possible terrorist attacks which will be useful for most U.S. residents. A copy of the brochure will be included with every Escape-IT personal escape and survival kit; the brochure will also be available for free viewing and download on the Escape-IT web site at http://www.escape-it.com.
ÂThere is so much information swirling around the media that we thought it would be useful to boil down the most important points to a brochure people can refer to easily,Â notes Escape-ITÂs Tim Barry, ÂThe brochure includes ÂstrategyÂ - planning for the unthinkable, ÂtacticsÂ - how to best respond if an incident occurs and lists of recommended critical supplies for emergency evacuation, car and extended at home confinement.Â
*** Brochure Expands Kit ***
The new brochure expands the emergency information provided with all Escape-IT personal escape kits; it joins three fire safety brochures plus critical safety items to help potential victims escape in an emergency:
- Smoke Hood - Dupont Kapton fire resistant film smoke hood with a six layer air filter. The smoke hood can be put on in seconds and covers the entire head to protect face, hair and eyes. The air filter removes smoke and toxic fumes and gives up to 20 minutes escape time.
- Flashlight with battery - Emergencies can occur day or night, indoors or outdoors. Escaping in the dark can be difficult and dangerous. A light source may be critical to signaling and/or escaping safely.
- Signal Whistle - Very loud!! Audible to signal rescuers or other group members at much greater distance that verbal instructions or shouts.
- Compact, Portable - The entire kit with instructions stores in a vinyl pouch with a snap closure. The kit measures 9-1/8Â x 5-5/8Â x 1-1/8Â, weighs only 5.2 oz.
ÂEveryone should have a personal escape kit handy, particularly in high rise buildings.Â continues Barry, ÂFire, however caused, is probably the highest risk we face. Having those first few minutes to get through fire and smoke to escape may be critical. Many fire emergency casualties are preventable with basic planning and just a few essential items. Escape-IT provides these items in a compact kit that stores easily in a nightstand, desk, purse or brief case for immediate access anywhere - at home, in the office, in a high rise hotel room or on board an airplane or cruise ship.Â
