The recent spate of hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, typhoons, wildfires and all kinds of other disasters have sparked new interest in an unusual idea for holiday gift-giving: the survival kit. It's an excellent gift idea because it’s something that most folks need but just never get around to buying for themselves.

The recent spate of hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, typhoons, wildfires and all kinds of other disasters have sparked new interest in an unusual idea for holiday gift-giving: the survival kit.

Howard Wallace, President of Survivor Industries, Inc., noted that his company has sold pre-packaged survival kits for over 15 years. “We have one-person, two-person and family kits available on our website, http://www.survivorind.com and they make excellent gifts because it’s something that most folks just never get around to buying for themselves.”

Survivor’s pre-packaged kits make a lasting impression because the food and purified water that are included have been tested to withstand extreme temperature variations while providing a five year shelf life. The food and water have even been approved by the United States Coast Guard.

“It’s a gift that everyone can use because no matter where you live, there’s always a chance that you might have to be on your own for a few days following a disaster. It’s a good idea to have a kit in your desk, in your car and in your home – anywhere you spend a great deal of time,” noted Wallace. He added, “In the Northeast, there have been times when people have been trapped in their cars during severe snowstorms and blizzards. In those cases, not only could the food and water come in handy, but the space-age emergency blanket could provide much needed warmth.”

With all the recent disasters around the globe, a survival kit is a thoughtful choice that offers as an added benefit, the gift of peace of mind.

Survivor Industries, Inc., a world leader in emergency preparedness, produces up to 20 tons of food per day and 3,000 or more cases of purified water per week. In addition, it is one of the largest distributors of mylar-type emergency blankets and cocoon sleeping bags, which are included in many of its pre-packaged kits. Survivor’s emergency products are distributed throughout the United States and in many countries around the world. To assure ongoing quality, the manufacturing and assembly of the emergency supplies takes place at the company’s headquarters in Camarillo, California.
