Rahway, NJ (PRWEB) October 13, 2010
Are you stumped about what to give your loved ones this holiday season? In today's challenging economy many people are looking for practical gifts. Why not give the gift of safety and security to a loved one, the gift of survival..
“There is no better gift,” says Christine Cederquist, owner of Survival Gear Source and an emergency preparedness expert. “It’s practical, thoughtful, and shows that you care about the recipient.”
“In today's uncertain world, the ability to survive the first 72 hours after being trapped in a vehicle in a snowstorm or any major disaster is crucial. Our products should be standard equipment in the car, at home and in the office,” remarks Cederquist. “Yes, it’s the one gift that you hope your loved ones don’t have to use but it’s assurance that if they do need to, they will weather the crisis. This is truly the gift that may save a loved one's life!”
Here are three items in the $100 and under category:
ª 4-in-1 Auto Emergency Hammer ($18.95) A car hammer that can break glass in an emergency situation. Recently shown on an episode of “Myth Busters,” it is an excellent and proven way to break a car window and/or cut a seatbelt if a car is submerged. (The doors will not open, so often times the only way out is through a window.)
ª Family Blackout Kit ($69.99) This red travel-sized backpack comes filled with all the supplies needed to keep up to four people safe during a blackout.
ª One-Person Deluxe Survival Kit ($73.50) This kit includes food and water, light and communications, shelter and warmth, tools, hygiene, and first-aid equipment for one- person for 72 hours.
ª Two-Person Deluxe Home Survival Kit ($99.99) A two-person, three-day survival kit packaged in a five-gallon container with a toilet seat/lid and designed for the home. This comprehensive kit contains the most effective supplies for emergency preparedness, including food and water, lighting, radio, first-aid, sanitation, and shelter supplies. It even includes a solar/hand-crank powered flashlight, radio, flashing LED siren and mobile phone charger with a universal adapter, which enables cell phones to be charged using a hand-crank/dynamo power generator.
One of the most important steps in preparing for emergencies is to develop a household disaster plan. Having the supplies on hand before disaster strikes is imperative. Give the gift of survival this holiday season. All items can be found at http://www.SurvivalGearSource.com.
