September Is National Preparedness Month

first aid kitSeptember is National Preparedness Month, which is sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as a way to educate the American public about how to prepare for a variety of disasters that could disrupt their day-to-day lives.

Disasters can take many forms, including heavy snow storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, fires, water main breaks, terrorist attacks, chemical contamination, pandemics, or other scenarios. In the event of a disaster, emergency responders may not be able to reach people quickly. It is therefore essential for families, businesses, schools, hospitals, and other people and organizations to have plans and supplies in place to deal with events and situations that may arise.

flashlightYou should have enough food, water, and medication on hand to last you and other members of your household at least three days in case you do not have water service or access to a supermarket or pharmacy. Have flashlights and batteries in case you lose electricity. Buy a NOAA weather radio so you can receive up-to-date weather forecasts and special instructions. Buy or assemble a first aid kit.

Register to receive emergency notifications from state and local officials on your cell phone. Discuss how you and family members will contact each other if you are separated when disaster strikes. Choose a location where you can assemble. Plan how you will evacuate if necessary. Consider the special needs of children, senior citizens, and individuals with disabilities. Also consider how you will care for pets.

Find out what emergency preparedness plans are in place in your community. Ask state and local officials about what types of emergencies they are prepared for and what types of supplies and resources they have available. Ask about what types of services, such as shelters, will be available in the event of a disaster. Ask how officials will communicate with the public to share information and instructions. Discuss emergency preparedness with your employer and your children’s school or daycare.

Everyone should be prepared for an emergency. You never know when disaster may strike or what form it may take. Learn more about what plans are in place and come up with a plan for your own family. Being prepared can put your mind at ease and help you get through the challenges that you could face if an emergency arises.

Choose the Right Supplies to Prepare for Your Camping Trip

If you are planning a camping trip this summer, the right gear is essential. You will need some basic supplies to make your time in the woods or at a campground safe and comfortable.

tentThe first thing you will need when camping is shelter. Tents are available in a variety of sizes to accommodate just one person or as many as seven or more. You can also choose a screen house or canopy, as well as accessories and camping furniture.

The next important part of your camping preparation is food. You can choose hiker food with a five-year shelf life if you are planning an extended trip or intend to go camping several times in the future. A cooler will help you keep your fresh food cold, and a barbecue set will let you cook up a delicious meal. You will also need clean drinking water. Rather than carry cases of bottled water, consider a water filter and purifier.

lanternYou will need light for those dark nights in the woods or at the campground. An LED lantern can illuminate a much larger area than you could with a flashlight.

You will want to stay clean on your camping trip. Portable toilets, portable showers, and privacy enclosures can help you stay comfortable when you are away from home.

first aid kitSafety is another important concern on your camping trip. Be sure to pack an outdoor first aid kit that contains all the supplies you will need to treat an injury.

You will also want to be able to stay in touch with others while you are camping. Take along a weather radio and a two-way radio to help you stay informed of conditions and be able to call for help if necessary.

If you are planning to go camping in the woods, you will need to be able to navigate to avoid losing your way. A GPS unit will help you know your location at all times so you will never get lost.

If your camping trip will include an outing on a river or lake in a boat or kayak, be sure to pack your life vest for safety.

Having the right tools and accessories available is also important on your camping trip. Swiss army products, multi-tools, and car accessories are essential so that you will be prepared for anything.

Whether you are planning an overnight stay at a campground or a week-long foray into the woods, be sure to pack all the equipment and supplies you will need to make your camping trip safe and enjoyable.

Survival Supply Offers Emergency Water and Purification Kits

FEMA, the Department of Homeland Security, and other safety experts recommend keeping one gallon of water per person per day on hand in case of an emergency. This should include 50 percent potable water for drinking and cooking and 50 percent for hygiene.

Emergency water needs to have a long shelf life to last in storage. Canned water lasts longer than water stored in other types of containers. The technology was developed during World War II and has evolved over the years. While bottled water has a shelf life of two years, the Department of Homeland Security and the American Red Cross recommend replacing emergency bottled water every six months.

Survival Supply’s canned water is produced in the United States and meets the highest FDA standards for water preservation. Canned water produced today has a shelf life of up to 30 years. Alka canned emergency water is processed through multiple micro filtration, ultraviolet, and ozone infusion processes to make it the purest and safest drinking water. It contains natural calcium to provide active cellular hydration and regulate your body’s pH level, which is necessary to maintain health. Water pouches offer a shelf life of up to five years.

water filtration bottleSurvival Supply also carries a line of water purification tools to remove impurities from water that has been contaminated and make it safe to drink. We offer a water filtration bottle designed with technology from NASA that can effectively filter most impurities from contaminated water. Level 1 filters are carbon-based and can reduce chlorine, taste, and odor. Level 2 filtration uses a 2 micron pore size and positively charged electro-adsorption process to draw and trap harmful agents that are much smaller than the pores.

Our nano-silver membrane filters can eliminate over 600 types of bacteria. PurifiCups use a silver membrane filter to remove up to 99.99 percent of bacteria, parasites, and pathogens and provide up to 24 gallons of pure drinking water.

siphon microfilterSurvival Supply also offers Katadyn Siphons that can filter water in any container by using gravity. Simply place the ceramic filter in the container, place the container on higher ground, and the siphon will filter the water. It has a silver-impregnated, cleanable ceramic element and can purify up to 5,000 gallons of water.

 

vario microfilterOur vario microfilters use ceramic and pleated microfiltration to filter water under a variety of conditions. They use replaceable carbon, so water always tastes fresh. A cleanable ceramic disc extends the life of the primary microfilter.

Survival Supply also carries faucet-mounted, chemical-free, pocket, and hiking microfilters. Our mini ceramic microfilter is the lightest, most compact filter available. It can fit in a coat pocket or waist pack and is capable of filtering up to 2,000 gallons of water. We also carry TRK drip microfilters and KFT Expedition high-capacity filtration systems, as well as desalination kits to filter sea water.

Whether you are looking for drinking water to store in the event of an emergency or a means of filtering contaminated water, Survival Supply has everything you need to be sure that you and your family will have safe drinking water whenever you need it.
