George O'Toole on Over 590,000 Lives Secured with Emergency Kits and Disaster Supplies! With Hurricane Sandy poised to potentially impact the region next week, Officials for the Pioneer Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross said they are seeing more people interested in developing plans to prepare for an emergency -- particularly in the wake of the four major storms last year.
Hurricane Sandy and headed straight for New Jersey, New York City and the surrounding areas. The sad scenes of hundreds of homes burned to the ground and tens of thousands of people evacuating in Colorado and elsewhere in the west remind us all of the need to be prepared to evacuate our homes on very short notice in case of an emergency or disaster.
This is just another reminder of the need to be prepared for earthquakes here in the United States. The bottom line is the best way to survive a California Superstorm is to prepare to care for your own essential survival needs. All this means, that your emergency supplies will stand a much better chance of making it through a major earthquake undamaged in a MobileAid Emergency Earthquake Kit than will earthquake supplies stored in a regular backpack or plastic bin.
