Food storage and emergency preparedness has always been focused on people who have space to store food and water. What about people who live in apartments and don’t have room to store the water they need to survive a disaster?
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
A stackable storage system is now available to help people who live in small spaces save food and water so they are prepared for emergencies such as national disasters. LIFESTACK Systems has been launched just in time for National Preparedness Month.
LIFESTACK http://www.LifestackSystems.com provides a stackable food and water storage solution for small homes and apartments. The stacks are made of individual containers that snap together and easily stack in all directions. They were designed to fit in tight spaces -- behind furniture, in cars and other tight spaces.
Key features of LIFESTACK include:
- It easily connects together.
- It stacks every which way.
- It is BPA free.
- It holds 1 gallon of water.
- It is leak-proof.
- It keeps out harmful sunlight.
- It is made of lightweight but durable material.
- And best of all, it is made in the USA.
The founder of the company, Helen Larsen has a background in energy preparedness.
She worked for Energizer for years and while there, designed a campaign to help people be better prepared in natural disasters or emergencies. She successfully partnered with Utah CERT, power companies, and businesses to educate people while selling emergency preparedness supplies, including Energizer batteries.
Later, when a devastating car wreck made it impossible for her to perform her job, and at 60 years old, Larsen decided it was time to start the business. As she helped move her son into an apartment, she wondered where he could store water or food. She realized he could utilize unused spaces as storage -- the areas behind a couch or other furniture. The food and water storage containers could fit behind, on all sides, and all directions.
“Food storage and emergency preparedness has always been focused on people who have space to store food and water. People with a garage or a basement. What about people who live in apartments and don’t have room to store the water they need to survive a disaster?” said Larsen.
LIFESTACK are one gallon containers that make up a stackable storage system that fits together like Lego pieces. “With Life Stack you can store 40 gallons of water behind a china hutch,” she said.
LIFESTACK makes it easier for everyone to follow FEMA guidelines to be prepared for natural disasters and emergencies. FEMA recommends everyone have at least one gallon of water per person per day for two weeks, plus a three month supply of food.
