Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 2, 2008
All too often storm tips given out by TV and Government are very inadequate when it comes to specifics. They will tell you to have a flashlight and fresh batteries on hand and a supply of fresh water. To many people this means a regular flashlight and some AA batteries. Which will last you all of an hour or less in an emergency situation.
Steven Harris, CEO of Knowledge Publications wants to make certain people have all the resources necessary to weather a storm like the ones facing the Gulf Coast right now.
"Many people are lulled into a false sense of security by taking the very minimum necessary steps to have on hand the staples that they might need in a situation like this. "We tell you you need to have a LED Flashlight that runs on D Cell Alkaline batteries...this kind of flashlight will run for over 100 hours. It's the lack of specifics that concern me about government recommendations," says Harris.
"People don't realize that with new un-scented trash bags and simple drawers or boxes, totes or crates, that they can store 50 or more gallons of fresh drinking water in as little at 10 to 15 minutes. Without even having to go to the store. It's important to educate people as to what's in your own home and not the store shelves that can help you in an emergency situation," he continues.
"People are often caught unaware and remarkably unprepared when the storm actually hits and are left wondering what happened." He continues, " At Knowledge Publications we're very committed to helping people before a disaster strikes so we've just made our new site, http://www.beforethestormhits.com LIVE and available for free fast download. Our information is specific, hands on, to the point with explicit examples of things you can do with exactly what you have around you."
"On the site you will find a wealth of very important pertinent information that can save you in the face of storms like these. We urge people now preparing and sheltered in the adjacent and soon to be affected areas to download all of this information before the coming landfall," he finishes.
At the website is a time tested class that Harris has taught to thousands of first responders, moms, dads, and grandmothers with great success. As can be witnessed by the testimonials on the site itself, people find the information a fantastic resource that allows them to put plans into action right away.
