When an emergency strikes, are you prepared? Do you have the necessary equipment to not only help yourself if you are injured, but to assist others as well?
According to United Nations statistics, there were 212 disasters in the United States between 2005-2014, causing $443 billion in damage, a higher cost than faced by any other nation. These disasters are largely weather-related. With hurricane season upon us, lasting from June to November, it's the right time to prepare. We've compiled a list of some of our favorite emergency products below!
When preparing for a hurricane, you don't just want a simple first aid kit--you want an exhaustive one. The Fieldtex Backpack First Aid Kit contains over 125 items for treating outdoor injuries. Not only does it contain the assortment of bandages and gauze you would expect from a first aid kit, but it also contains pressure bandages, cold packs, a CPR life mask, a first aid guide, and even a rescue blanket. If you participate in outdoor sports or even just travel during the winter, this is the complete option to keep yourself safe.
Research shows that ambulance response times are typically 7-8 minutes, but can rise to 14 minutes in rural areas. This gap between the call and the ambulance's arrival is crucial, and can make the difference between life or death. That's why we're offering our Emergency Trauma Response: Stop the Bleed Kit. This kit provides you with the tools you need to assist yourself or others while EMS responders can attend to the severely injured. Among the items included are a Halo chest bandage, QuikLitter emergency stretcher, heat-reflective survival wraps, and many other tourniquets, dressings, and other supplies.
Every vehicle should have an emergency blanket. No matter how well-maintained your car or truck is, the weather can get the best of it, and you never know when you might encounter someone on the road who needs your help. Kemp's emergency blanket is made of 80% real wool and 20% synthetic fibers, perfect for freezing temperatures. This durable blanket is made for humanitarian and rescue organizations
