CMC Government Supply is urging Americans to take action during the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Preparedness Month of September. That action includes preparing an emergency plan for your family, office or business and having an emergency kit stocked and ready to use.
Building an emergency kit gives you the tools you need to help others. CMC Government Supply is featuring all the items you need to build your own Emergency Kit. Start first with a red Emergency Duffel Bag, Go Bag, Backpack or C.E.R.T. bag. Add items like an 81 or 242 piece First Aid Kit, splints, emergency blankets, N95 masks and nitrile gloves.
Electrical power is typically lost in disasters which makes emergency lighting a key item to have in Emergency Kits. CMC features Rayovac Industrial Grade LED Indestructible Lights that come with alkaline batteries and a Lifetime Warranty. Another great lighting solution to include is a box of Cyalume SnapLight Light Sticks which are lightweight, waterproof and provide light for up to 12 hours. They come in a variety of colors and can equip many people with needed light for an affordable price.
Tools like the On Duty Emergency 4 in 1 Emergency Tool to shut off gas and water as well as can openers and locking pliers are also necessary additions to your kit. Other items like a helmet, signal whistle, duct tape, and work gloves should be considered.
CMC Government Supply also has pre-assembled Professional CERT Kits for Community Emergency Response Teams. These CERT backpacks come pre-loaded with emergency supplies or you can build your own. CERT Teams play an important role in our communities, serving as volunteers in times of need. They strive to be trained and prepared. CMC strives to provide them with quality CERT gear to do their job.
Preparing for disasters is smart and easy to do with dependable gear and emergency supplies from CMC Government Supply, the same place professional emergency responders go for their equipment. Visit http://www.cmcgov.com/store/pc/c438.htm for more information.
