“The average mom and dad are admittedly not emergency or disaster experts, but they do want to feel prepared for the unexpected. These kits are a simple way for them to get that assurance,” said Mark Augason, president of Live Prepared.

Research shows most people aren’t as prepared for emergencies as they may think. In case of an unexpected event caused by extreme weather or loss of electricity, the assurance of having everything one needs to keep their family safe allows them to focus on what matters. That’s why Live Prepared is now offering a comprehensive line of simple emergency preparedness solutions that instill confidence and peace of mind by providing essential food, power, shelter and first aid in one convenient kit.
The new Live Prepared Emergency Home Kits fit any emergency, budget and family size, and are packaged in sturdy and stackable totes that make them easy to store or transport. Each kit is equipped with products such as a water bottle and filter, cooking gear and 50-hour candles, as well as nourishing and easy-to-prepare meals that require no refrigeration. Food-only and gear-only kits are also available.
“Ensuring your household has emergency supplies on hand is a simple but crucial safeguard – much like storing jumper cables in your car,” said Thomas Kostigen, emergency preparedness expert and best-selling National Geographic author. “It’s not enough to plan to live out of the pantry or keep extra batteries on hand. These complete kits are all about affording families peace of mind, knowing that they’re ready for anything and can thrive in the face of an emergency.”
Half of parents feel underprepared
While parents are highly concerned about protecting their families in emergency situations, many feel less than equipped to do so. In a nationwide consumer survey, Live Prepared found 75 percent of parents agree that emergency preparedness became a bigger concern when they had children, yet 50 percent of parents do not even know where to start.
“The average mom and dad are admittedly not emergency or disaster experts, but they do want to feel prepared for the unexpected. These kits are a simple way for them to get that assurance,” said Mark Augason, president of Live Prepared. “This isn’t about fear and uncertainty, but about taking a sensible approach to emergency preparedness and feeling secure in knowing you’ve checked this important item off your to-do list.”
