September 11, 2013 by Missy 391 Comments TweetWith September being National Preparedness Month, I thought this was a perfect opportunity to share this timely information and give you a chance to win a prize to help keep you better prepared. Disasters often strike when we least expect it.  Whether it is caused by Mother Nature or a man-made disaster, there are certain things that we can do to prepare our families. From medical needs, such as bandages and CPR masks, to survival basics like water, this kit provides the necessary tools to deal with many situations. Even though our experience with the ice storm had no lasting ill effects on us, it taught me that emergencies can happen to any one of us at any time.  Today we are better prepared and have worked on an emergency plan for our family.
The Basic Emergency Preparedness Kit can be ordered online from the American Red Cross Store for $55.  It’s a small investment for peace of mind. Simply leave me a comment below letting me know how you prepare for a possible emergency disaster!

I live in Texas so we have to be prepared for electric outages, tornadoes, a freak snowstorm, and sometimes even tropical depressions. This is a subject my Husband and I were discussing this evening because we just moved to a new state and we are currently not prepared at all for the weather conditions. I prepare by keeping a change of clothes in the car, extra supplies of water and batteries, etc. I have extra canned goods set aside in the event of an emergency, but I really need to stock up on more water, flashlights and batteries!

U-Haul Emergency Response Conversion Kit has been specifically designed for the American Red Cross to quickly convert an ordinary rental truck into a temporary emergency response vehicle. Instead of designing a new generation of ERV, Pengtao Yu, an industrial designer, has thought of utilizing common rental truck into a temporary ERV. U-Haul Emergency Response Conversion Kit is a low cost solution that will increase the capability of American Red Cross to respond faster and better to a large-scale disaster in a short period of time.

Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider. I do keep some extra water and food set aside along with candles, lighter and a flaslight, but thats’s about it. In a major disaster, thousands of response vehicles are needed in a short period of time, however it usually takes over a week for these Emergency Resnpose Vehicles (ERVs) to arrive on the location while the need for food and water is immediate. Thousands of pre-staged kits can be air shipped to the disaster area in one or two days, volunteers can turn any rental truck into ERV by following detail instructions. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
The challenge of this project is to find affordable solution that enables the Red Cross to respond to a large scale disaster in a short period of time. These converted vehicles can be used to provide stationary sites for distributing food and water. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
