SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Legacy Food Storage today announced that beginning tomorrow and lasting through December 2 (or while supplies last), its one- and two-people emergency kits will be on sale for $60 (originally $96) and $100 (originally $160) respectively, a discount of 37.5 percent. These kits – for sale online at www.buyemergencyfoods.com and www.preparewise.com – contain more than 70 items essential during a natural disaster, including flashlight radios, emergency blankets and ponchos for warmth and shelter, hygiene and first aid supplies, a whistle that serves as flint and a compass, and even a straw filter that removes more than 99.9 percent of major contaminants in water.

With natural disasters such as Typhoon Haiyan and tornadoes ripping through Illinois in the headlines this month, we’re seeing a significant upsurge in the number of customers asking for emergency essentials along with their food storage,” said Phil Cox, chief executive officer, Legacy Food Storage. “Giving family and friends the emergency essentials they need but haven’t known how to compile themselves would make an ideal holiday gift, especially for those you think already ‘have it all.’”
