What Do You Need For An Emergency?

We live in Southeast Virginia. The state with weather that can change from hour to hour. For example, last week we had a HUGE snowstorm that dumped 12 inches of snow on the ground and essentially shut us (and the schools) down for 6 days! Then last week we had two days in the upper 60’s and today it is 20 degrees!!! Completely CRAZY! Oh and if that isn’t bad enough we also live in a hurricane prone area. So when hurricanes come up the east coast we have to pay attention, and since our house is across the street from water we have to pay particular attention to which direction the wind is coming from and where the waves are going.

So being prepared in the event of an emergency is very important to us, as an emergency can happen at any time. And even though we have a generator so we can have some electricity,  what if we get snowed in and cant get to the grocery store, or flooded and can’t get out of the neighborhood? Having emergency supplies on hand is very important!

I mean even something as basic as water may not be available. There have been times we have had to boil our water because the water is contaminated after a bug storm. Water is a basic human need, and while yes, you ca buy it, what if yor water supply is gone before the water is safe? And I am not talking about apocalyptic events…..just think back to a hurricane that decimated many Caribbean islands this past summer?

It can happen!

My Patriot Supply can help with these concerns. They provide water filtration systems, HepA air filters, emergency food, and even organic seeds s you can grow your own food if needed. Preparing for an emergency is important so in the event something happens you and your loved ones will be safe. Here is an interview with My Patriot Supply’s VP of Marketing Keith Bansemer , who is not only an employee but a consumer of the products he markets, as he “often enjoys spending his free time off the grid in a region of Idaho near Upper Priest Lake.”

In fact, My Patriot Supply was instrumental in helping with aid to the state of Florida after Hurricane Irma struck in 2017.  Hurricane Irma was a devastating storm that leveled many islands in the Caribbean and brought flood waters and high wind damage to many parts of Florida, but in particular the Florida Keys and Miami.

I visited Miami in November, and there were many houses I saw with tarps on the roofs, and hurricane damage that had yet to be repaired, so being able to provide essentials like food and water was an important part of keeping families safe. Thank goodness companies like My Patriot Supply, among others were there to serve and aid families and businesses in their time of need!

I hope that you never have to deal with an emergency situation or the possibility of having unsafe water or no food but the reality is that many of us live in hurricane, tornado or flood areas and can incur damage and indeed, life threatening situations to our homes and families. It is for these instances that preparing for an emergency is so important!!
