Fulton, NY (PRWEB) August 31, 2011

With Hurricane Irene leaving just modest damage along the east coast, Camping Survival.com is recommending that all residents in Atlantic and Gulf coast areas stock up with emergency supplies to be well prepared for future storms and hurricanes this season.

“We dodged a bullet this time, but this is only the beginning of the hurricane season,” said Tom Sciacca, president of CampingSurvival.com. “If you plan on staying put during a storm, there is a chance that you may lose power and even water service, if municipal pumping stations are knocked offline. Whether you choose to ride out a storm or evacuate, you should keep enough food, water and other emergency supplies on hand.”

People that may need to evacuate, he said, should have a “go bag” of emergency supplies that enables them to have MRE (Meals Ready to Eat), flashlights, water, ponchos and other items that stores may run out of. Each go bag from CampingSurvival.com includes food, water and essential items, designed to keep users self-sufficient during the peak of storm-related hysteria: 

  • 6 MRE’s
  • 6 MRE heaters
  • 9 AquaBlox. purified emergency drinking water
  • Survival kit in a can. 38 items which can provide warmth, shelter and energy
  • Survival blanket
  • Emergency rain poncho
  • G.I. style aluminum canteen cup
  • High energy government survival candy
  • Energy bar
  • Personal hygiene kit
  • Mini first aid kit
  • Hand powered flashlight
  • Chow set

MRE (Meals Ready to Eat) are military rations, precooked, sealed and designed to keep for at least five years. They are available in a large range of flavors, including gourmet choices like Beef Ranchero Meat Loaf, Jamaican Pork Chop, Chicken with Cavatelli, and Black Bean and Rice Burrito. The MRE are not just entrees, but full meals, including side dishes, dessert, crackers, spread and coffee.

CampingSurvival.com also carries a new power outage kit that includes a corded emergency phone, flashlight, windup radio (with flashlight), fire extinguisher, light sticks and much more.

Hurricane season provides an excellent reminder that any natural disaster – flash flood, earthquake, tornado – can require people to provide for themselves in the short term. A go bag and MRE are easy ways to prepare, and provide back up when police and emergency service agencies are overwhelmed with people in need of assistance.

“There is no place on Earth that doesn’t have the risk of some kind of natural disaster,” said Sciacca. “People who are well prepared are in a position to protect themselves and their families, rather than waiting for assistance. Weâve made it our mission to help them be more self-sufficient.”
