But we want to keep it a bit light, so we'll talk about other current events in our lives, too.
Xenia, OH (PRWEB) August 30, 2008
Many people have different concepts of preparedness. It could involve emergency cash, ample amounts of food and water or an escape route. Eileen Yankee knows a thing or two about the aftermath of natural disasters, which is why she owns and operates http://www.YourOwnSecuritySite.com, a website that has survival kits and other emergency preparedness items.
"We live in Xenia, OH and it was wiped by a tornado in 1974 and it killed 68 people, and again in 2000 where one person was killed and several were injured," explained Yankee. "We weren't hurt, but the whole town was devastated. We were out of power for days and you really need to have something to help you get through that time until the authorities can get things cleaned up. Having gone through it before, it made sense to make survival kits available to everyone."
Yankee began making plans for the website in late 2007 and by the spring of 2008, http://www.YourOwnSecuritySite.com was up and operational under her Yankees International banner.
Tornados, hurricanes and earthquakes are not mythological events and in many parts of the world, they are common occurrences - even if they are seasonal in most cases. Still, Yankee wants to make sure that people have ample supplies ready for their safety and well-being; after all, it's best to be prepared now, than trying to scramble for supplies following an emergency.
"We are concerned about everybody, especially families," said Yankee. "We want to ensure that people have access to a form of survival preparation: a plan, a first aid kit and even a tent, if needed."
Yankee has also built a companion blog to make more information regarding survival preparedness in http://www.SurvivabilityPreparation.com. "If there's something about a storm coming in, we'll post information to help people get prepared," she said. "But we want to keep it a bit light, so we'll talk about other current events in our lives, too."
Though she already has a myriad of emergency supplies at affordable prices, Yankee plans to further raise her company's profile with more webstores: "We're looking into pet products, books, clothing and outdoor gear for camping."
Unlike many websites on the internet, http://www.YourOwnSecuritySite.com has products that are absolutely essential to ensure that the human spirit stays alive and well during times of disaster. Safety is a paramount concern for Eileen Yankee, it's time that it becomes your concern as well.
