Best Emergency Supplies, August 2011
Haven’t gotten around to making that earthquake kit, huh? SOS Survival Products can help. You’ll find your fill of emergency kits for individuals, families, even pets, and all the necessities for assembling your own—from Mylar blankets and radios to respirator masks and, of course, self-heating coffee. Plus the staff is a lot more accommodating than what you’d encounter piecing together supplies at Home Depot. Not only will they set you straight on the finer points of emergency preparedness (such as why water boxes and pouches are better than plastic bottles), but they host regular classes (some free) on fire safety, CPR, and other topics.
