When the next big earthquake hits, our customers will be heading out the back door to open their QR Center, assured that everything they will need for at least seven days' survival is ready and waiting. Meanwhile, those without the resources included in a QR Center will be heading out their front door in search of shelter, supplies, water and food
San Fransisco (Vocus) January 22, 2008
As California recovers from the year's first big storms, residents might be readying for the next big weather event. One thing they should be more concerned about is whether they are properly prepared today for the next big earthquake, which could happen tomorrow -- even during a major storm. Disaster Survival Solutions, a company located just miles from the epicenter of the 1906 earthquake, has taken all the guesswork out of earthquake preparedness and is now delivering and installing the QR Center for Bay Area residents.
The Quake Relief Center is a complete earthquake kit, housed in a durable weatherproof deck box, and designed to be located directly outside the home. It contains everything needed to be self-sufficient after a big quake, along with a personalized disaster action plan. Also available is a yearly maintenance service that includes an annual inspection, refresh of all perishable items in the kit, and an update of the personal disaster action plan. With QR Center, just minutes after a natural disaster occurs, Bay Area residents can be sure they will have a secure, warm, sheltered environment with lighting, hygiene essentials, and a week's supply of food and water. The QR Center offers one-stop, comprehensive disaster relief not available elsewhere.
"When the next big earthquake hits, our customers will be heading out the back door to open their QR Center, assured that everything they will need for at least seven days' survival is ready and waiting. Meanwhile, those without the resources included in a QR Center will be heading out their front door in search of shelter, supplies, water and food," says Chris McCloy, founder of Disaster Survival Solutions. "The QR Center is available for immediate delivery and provides complete peace of mind. It provides assurance that a family of up to seven people, plus pets, will have the food, water, shelter, sanitation and hygiene essentials, communication tools, and first-aid supplies they need to be self-sufficient until other resources become available."
The QR Center is sold in various sizes from 2-person through 7-person. All kits include everything needed to survive outside the home for up to a week as well as the Quake Relief Plan -- comprehensive binders that contain step-by-step instructions for before, during and after an earthquake. One binder is stored inside the box, and a second binder is kept inside the home. Copies of vital emergency contact information are printed on small cards that can be stored in wallets, purses, and children's backpacks. Survival kits for cats and dogs are also available.
After a significant earthquake, McCloy says that many houses will still be standing and possibly even structurally sound. "But they will resemble a shoe box filled with broken glass, debris, broken plaster and slippery liquids. And that box will be shaken again with each aftershock, causing even more damage. You won't want to be living inside that house for hours, let alone a week -- and it will be days to a week before vital services such as water, electricity, and gas service are restored."
