Did you know May 9 through May 15 is hurricane preparedness week?
The National Weather Service suggests we all consider making arrangements now rather than wait for hurricane season to hit in June.
No one wants to get caught in a storm without enough food and water, but there’s a lot more than that to keep in mind. Here are 12 ways to ensure you’re ready for hurricane season.
Promising review: My wife and I needed a small safe ... We didn't need something fancy, just a safe place to keep passports, deeds, important receipts and some cash. ... Either one of us can just grab the convenient handle and go in the case of an emergency. We could have spent a lot more but Sentry's reputation drew our attention. ... The price was excellent!
Promising review: This thing is built like a tank! Construction is very durable. The sound quality is great and it honestly surprised me how clear the sound is. The flashlight has a bright mode, low mode and a SOS mode. The display lights up orange when you hit any button and it's very clear and easy to read. ... It lasts about 4 continuous days of radio. ... It charges very quickly with a standard phone charger. ... Overall, I highly recommend it!
Promising review: This is probably the most valuable item I have purchased this year. I am a substitute teacher as well as a lunch/recess supervisor and it's quite hard to be heard over 50 noisy kiddos on a widespread playground. This whistle gets it done!! It's useful indoors sometimes, too; I even blew it in the hallway on the last day of school because yelling at the top of my voice wasn't cutting it. I HIGHLY recommend this!
Promising review: This is the best portable charger I have purchased. I used 2 of these to go on a 300 mile bike ride. Was very reliable and worked great. I’ve had some portable chargers that didn’t work well and I threw them in the garbage. These are good chargers and would highly recommend. It charged my iPhone and Garmin GPS great on [a] bike ride.
Promising review: I call this rescue on the run pouch! [It] has everything I need to have on standby... Meets the emergency standards for small commercial use. ... I'll be buying more to have on standby and general replacement since the price is just right. I highly recommend for small businesses and personal use!
Promising review: These lanterns are small but mighty. They give off so much light! I like that I can use it as a flashlight or lantern. I love that it is magnetic AND comes with a hook so I can use it just about anywhere! These will be great to keep in the car, to use when the power goes out, for camping and when having to work in spaces direct light cannot reach...
Promising review: I am going to keep this one simple. Recently I got stranded in the back woods of the Adirondack Mountains. I had ran out of water earlier on the first day and used this until I was rescued on the morning of day three. THIS WORKS, this helped save my life. If you hike, YOU NEED THIS PRODUCT.
Promising review: I bought this to store a prescription in but my wife has discovered other uses for it now. We now take it along on trips and she stores her jewelry in it. I might buy another one as I can think of a few other things I might want to keep out of sight and locked up.
Promising review: This drill is pretty lightweight and small but, it packs a good punch. It comes with a great assortment of bits and also comes with a hammer and measuring tape. ... I wasn't sure it would work well enough for the jobs around the house but, after using it for some time now, I love it. I would buy again!
Promising review: Having purchased other survival bags to dissect and reassemble with my own spin, this package is a cut above the rest. Quality supplies, a good bag and a really good knife.
