What Does it Mean to Prep for Disaster?
Sustain was created with the ultimate goal to simplify and streamline the preparation process, while offering high quality products & items at a price that just makes sense. We wanted to take the guesswork out of assessing family needs in emergency scenarios, while offering greater value than trying to piece together an emergency kit via retailers and super markets. That’s why our preparation and emergency bags include all the necessities needed for you and your family to survive, with quality and reliability that is unrivaled.
As natural disasters become more prevalent, the need to be prepared at a moment’s notice has become a necessity more so than an afterthought. Perhaps that’s why there’s a growing rate of people who identify as “preppers”, with three to five million in the United States alone.
If the power goes out, are you prepared? This is a question we want everyone to ask ahead of time, so you can be fully at peace knowing that you have everything you need for whatever disaster, crisis, or emergency event you and your family find yourselves in.
Depending on where you live geographically, you may be at risk for certain weather patterns such as hurricanes, tornados, snow storms, or wildfires. That doesn’t mean that there is a one size fits all emergency plan for any one specific disaster, however, being aware of what has historically happened in your general area can help you game plan for what may come in the future.
Being mindful and playing out “what if” scenarios in your head will only get you so far, and that’s where prepping really comes into play. Preppers usually equip themselves with at least 72-hour emergency bags or kits, as well as other supplies. The bags and kits which are designed to include everything from lighting, hydration, food, safety and more are designed to comfortably last 72 hours or more.
Going with a Sustain bag isn’t just smart, it’s efficient. Picking out items can become confusing, expensive and tedious. As we’ve said time and time again, the main reason we designed our emergency survival kits is for you to be sure you have everything you need to survive comfortably.
At Sustain, our industry leading packs are professionally curated by prepping experts who know what it takes to survive and thrive when there is an emergency situation, but if you’re going to shop around or build a kit yourself then it’s important you pack the main essentials:
- Food & Water
- Fire Starter Kit
- Medical & Hygiene
These are the backbone of our bags and emergency packs. Check out our entire lineup of bags for the ultimate 72-hour pack and follow the blog moving forward to stay in the loop! In the words of the famous Bear Grylls, “adapt, improvise, overcome” with Sustain.
