“Get a kit, make a plan and stay informed!” This is what the government has been urging all of us to do, and it appears that Americans are starting to listen. There is no denying the impact of recent events in Japan on global disaster planning and preparedness. With the combined blow of an 8.9 mega quake, 30 foot walls of tsunami waters, and a looming nuclear disaster, “preparedness” is becoming the buzz word of the hour. The 72 Hour Kit offers a simple and complete survival pack for the critical first 72 hours following a major disaster.

The 72 Hour Disaster Kit

"These are uncertain times, and the need for an easy and convenient way to stay safe in a crisis is paramount. The 72 Hour Kit is the result of several years of disaster planning research and survival product testing.” Shawn Hassett - The 72 Hour Kit

Global disasters are on the rise. Long before global seismometers went black with the “immeasurable activity” of the March 11th Japan quake, there were other disaster warning signs. In 2011 alone the world has witnessed the Queensland floods, the Western Australia Brushfires, and the devastating 6.3 magnitude earthquake in New Zealand. The global disasters of the last decade loom large in the annals of natural catastrophes including the 2003 Iran Quake and European Heat Wave; the 2004 Indonesia Quake; the 2005 Sumatra Quake, Hurricane Katrina, and Kashmir Quake; the 2008 Cyclone in Myanmar and Great Sichuan Quake; the 2009 Swine Flu Outbreak; and the 2010 Haiti Quake.

Less Than $7 Dollars A Day to Stay Alive.
What if the unthinkable happened...a major quake, a major storm, a major attack? It’s not pleasant to think about, but it seems to be occurring everyday. It’s easy to assume that “someone” will do something. Americans are conditioned to rely on someone else to fix everything ... but what if “they” don’t? What if “they” can’t? The 72 Hour Kit provides the critical components to help sustain life until help arrives or vital services are restored. Each kit contains 3-Days of essential provisions and select survival tools for $19.95 ... that’s less than $7 a day to stay alive. The 72 Hour Kit is complete, easy to store, portable, and its food and water supply are approved by the US Coast Guard.

Why "72 Hours" of Survivial Time is So Important.
Experts tell us that the first 72-hours following a major disaster are critical. Why? In the event of a major earthquake, hurricane, flood, wildfire, tornado or even terror attack ... communication lines are often overloaded or down, electricity is typically out, food spoils, water may be unavailable or undrinkable and first responders often need days to locate people in distress. It is important to have 3 days worth of survival supplies. Having a 72 Hour Kit with essential food, water, first aid, and other critical survival tools will increase the chances of staying alive as well as overall peace of mind.

Will FEMA really be there?
FEMA asks “Are you Prepared?” and “Will you be a disaster survivor?” Clearly, the answer depends upon each individual. Across the United States, citizens are now taking a more active role in “preparedness” and self-preservation and The 72 Hour Kit has compiled the essential components of survival into a convenient kit at an affordable price. The 72 Hour Kit has been featured on major US News Channels and is offering average citizens “Peace of mind in a Box.”

“It's time to get prepared. I remember Katrina, and I want to have my own resources,” says Brad of Los Angeles who recently purchased several 72 Hour Kits. “I bought 6 of them ... one for each family member and one for my car.”

The 72 Hour Kit’s food and water components are US Coast Guard Approved and have a Guaranteed 5-Year Shelf Life. The kit includes:

§    (6) 4.2 oz Mylar Water Pouches
§    36-Piece First Aid Kit
§    Emergency Blanket
§    2400 Calorie Food Bar
§    5-in1 Survival Tool
§    Waterproof Matches
§    Lightstick

"These are uncertain times, and the need for an easy and convenient way to stay safe in a crisis is paramount. The 72 Hour Kit is the result of several years of disaster planning research and survival product testing,” says Shawn Hassett one of the creators of the 72 Hour Kit.
