Emergency Preparedness

Updated: Mar 3

(This is the first post in our emergency preparedness series. See the second post here: More Emergency Supplies.)


In Texas last week, we had extreme weather that knocked out many of our utilities and made us realize how unprepared for a natural disaster we all were.


Companies and organizations are looking at ways they can give back to the community and help people recover. Many people are stocking up on supplies to be better prepared for future emergencies. This is a great chance to offered imprinted items to show that you care for your customers and employees while they stock up.


Hand Sanitizer


We're still in a pandemic after all. Without clean water, or running water at all, it's still important to guard against Covid-19 and other diseases.


In addition, with every 8 oz hand sanitizer purchased, we will donate a 1 oz sanitizer to homeless shelters and other charities in need.









Growlers


While growlers are often used to take out beer from breweries, they're also great for storing water. When water was restored in some parts of the city but not others, many breweries were offering clean drinking water for anyone who brought their own container. Growlers can also be used to store water for future use.





Paper Plates and Bowls


In the middle of a disaster, the last thing you want to do is dishes. That's made even harder without clean water to wash them in. Having disposable dishware and utensils gives one less thing to do during a very stressful time.



First Aid Kit


Obviously, an essential item to keep around for emergencies.











Lanterns and Flashlights


When the power goes out, the more backup sources of light you have around, the better. LEDs often give off more light for less power, but it's still a good idea to keep extra batteries around too.


Matches


Not only to light candles, but also to light the fireplace on cold nights.


Water Filtration and Sterilization


Some of the newest products on the market focus on making tap water safer.



Battery Powerbanks and Jump Starters


Generators can be dangerous to use in enclosed places. Powerbanks that can recharge your phone for communication during an emergency can be very useful, and many can be used to jump start a car as well.
