This has been on ‘my list’ for literally EVER. It involves preparing my family and somehow it’s one of those things that keeps getting pushed back when really, I can’t actually think of anything more important! I am so relieved (yes, that’s totally the right word) that we finally have these 2 backpacks in our shed.
We hear it all.the.time on the West Coast. The “big one” is coming. There have been close calls and for some reason, I STILL didn’t take the steps to equip our family in case of an emergency. It actually kind of makes me feel a bit foolish, as I sit here and type this out. The important thing is that we ARE prepared now in the case of an earthquake!
What finally inspired me was when I found Earthquake Kit on social media. These are backpacks containing everything a family needs for 72 hours in the case of a natural disaster striking. What sealed the deal for me and motivated me to just take the plunge was that these kits come completely stocked and packaged for you. I know for sure that part of my ‘hesitation’ to knock this off my list was the idea of having to source a company or, even more daunting, source all the necessary items myself and put it all together. Daunting!
The Earthquake Kit backpacks comes with everything essential to survival should we find ourselves in a desperate situation. Everything from water rations and water purification tablets to ponchos to a hand-crank powered light and USB charger. These bags have it all!
Above is what you will find in the 72hrs Deluxe 4 Person Backpack Earthquake Kit (available for order HERE). It was instantly apparent to me that there is no way I could ever put together all that we would need for our family for 72hrs for even double the cost of what you buy these Earthquake Kit backpacks for. What you see above is $190.00 and, within greater Vancouver, it will be delivered to you in person!
Earthquake Kit is a local Vancouver company with a goal of having an Earthquake Kit in every home to ensure the safety of BC residents. If you live outside of greater Vancouver, your kits will be shipped to you!
I especially love that once I did bite the bullet and order my Kit, I knew it would arrive ASAP. There’s a certain sense of urgency when you feel like you want to be prepared. You kind of want it…. NOW!
