Irving, TX (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
How long does it take to prepare an emergency kit with food, water, tools, shelter, first aid, and supplies? In the event of a crisis: too long.
Noting increased requests from school and business customers for emergency supplies and kits, Supply Line Direct recently launched an emergency preparedness product line. The online safety supplier introduced a series of complete survival kits for response to life-threatening weather forces, loss of power, and man-made disasters.
News accounts provide all-too-frequent reminders of chaos that ensues in the aftermath of severe storms, floods, earthquakes, wildfires, and threats or actions of gunmen and terrorists. The FEMA website http://www.ready.gov guides not only individuals and families on preparing for such events, but encourages businesses to prepare for emergencies with appropriate disaster response kits stored on-site.
An Ad Council survey reports that nearly two-thirds (62 percent) of respondents do not have emergency plans in place for their businesses. And an Insurance Information Institute report states that up to 40 percent of businesses affected by a natural or human-caused disaster never reopen.
Supply Line Direct now offers survival kits, disaster response kits, automotive kits, and classroom lockdown kits to make effective preparedness easier. The emergency kits are packed for efficient storage and quick deployment. Convenient 5-gallon buckets or backpacks are packed with food, water, tools, first-aid kits, shelter, hygienic products, lights, and electronic communication. Some kits even include a deck of cards or notepad to relieve stress and depression.
Emergency kits in the new line are designed to comply with FEMA recommendations and other non-profit preparedness organizations. Kits are stocked with enough food and water to last up to 72 hours. The 400-calorie food bars and water have a 5-year shelf life, and the practical packaging is designed to save critical time.
A 10-person bucket survival kit fits easily on a designated shelf or closet in any business location. It is stocked with forty food bars, fifty water purification tablets, and sixty 4-ounce water pouches. Also included are ten hygiene kits, ten emergency blankets, and a 2-person tube tent with rope.
For business travelers and truck drivers, a compact vehicle emergency kit is equipped with jumper cables, bungee cords, and a ten-foot towrope. In case of bad weather conditions, there’s a 16-hour body warmer, an emergency survival blanket, and a multi-function flashlight.
The Supply Line Direct product line doesn't stop with emergency preparedness for offices and plants, though. A classroom lockdown kit helps prepare schools for emergencies. One kit can sustain a class of 30 students. Some packaged items include: a 5-in-1 survival whistle, a Dynamo 4-in-1 radio flashlight, a 12-hour emergency bright stick, and a 5’ x 7’ tarp.
Emergency preparedness kits provide more than basic necessities to help workers survive a crisis. They help provide security, comfort, and ease of mind at times when restoring order is most critical for successful recovery.
