How To Prepare Your Family For Any Emergency Situation
⚠️ Over 90% of American households are not prepared for an emergency situation because they lack the simple ordinary items needed for survival.
When an emergency arises, there are a few essential elements to getting through it. One of those is thinking about what type of supplies will be needed.
That vital list should cover: Safety, Temperature Control, Water & Food, Communications, Medical, Tools, Lighting & Back-Up Power, Hygiene and Comfort.
Here are some of our top picks:
Portable Water Filter Straw
Instantly turn any source of water into clean drinkable water.
If you are a fan of the outdoors, whether it be hiking, camping or other -- you know how essential it is to bring enough drinking water.
That's great, as long as everything goes as planned. Unfortunately for 1000's of people per year, it doesn't go as planned. Getting lost in the wild is very real, and can be very deadly. Especially when you run out of drinkable water.
The #1 concern when you're lost in the wild is where to procure potable water.
Sometimes there will be bubbling streams of crystal clear water rolling down wooded hillsides to fill your water bottle and sometimes you'll have little more than a stagnant bacteria-filled pool standing between you and dehydration.
The Portable Water Filter Straw is a survival item that can turn that stagnant pool into a lifesaver. Meeting EPA standards, it's shown to remove more than 99.99% of waterborne parasites and bacteria. Always keep this essential piece of survival gear packed with you.
This life saving bag will keep you warm in freezing temps.
Hypothermia is a very serious and deadly condition that affects thousands of people yearly. It often creeps up when you least expect it, you could get lost hiking (even during summer nights!) or most commonly, stranded roadside in bad weather.
A few degrees drop in body temperature and you are in serious trouble.
That's where the Emergency Sleeping Bag comes in. It will keep you warm and safe during freezing temperatures by reflecting 90% of your body heat back to you. This prevents frostbite, shock and hypothermia.
They pack smaller than a can of soda, allowing you to store in your emergency kit. We highly recommend keeping one of these life saving bags per person, per vehicle.
This 9-in-1 tool is trusted by many first responders.
Whether you are out at night walking the dog, in a roadside emergency or camping in the wilderness --proper lighting is essential to your safety. Without it, you'll be shuffling around like a headless chicken.
This is the #1 tool many first responders rely on, and so should you.
But it's not just a flashlight... The SolarBeam Emergency Flashlight has 9 functions with a single mission: keeping you safe. It's rechargeable - either by outlet or sun, allowing you to charge up outdoors without a source of electricity.
It also acts as an emergency car escape tool, with a built in seatbelt cutter and window breaker. That's why keeping this in your glove box is an absolute must.
I started a safety kit for my car with the article you guys wrote about safety items. Everything I ordered was exactly as you said, and functions well. I am going to order more and build my grand daughter a kit as well. Thank you Prepared Hero!
A must have for any outdoor excursion.
I frequently hike and camp in the backcountry all over the United States. Carrying the amount of water that I need to survive during these trips is just not feasible due to the weight. In the past I always carried a General Ecology First Need XL water purifier and refilled nalgene bottles with it. Since getting the straw I most likely won't be doing that any longer since it's is smaller and lighter than the First Need XL. I recently took a filter straw out for a test on a backcountry hike in the Rocky Mountains. Every stream, lake, or other water source that I came across I stopped for a drink. I was drinking fresh snow melt and also from lakes that are home to beavers and other wildlife. There was no added taste to the water and I didn't get sick during or after the trip.
Works as described!
Took mine out for a test today and it worked well, I put it in direct sunlight and the little light showed that it was charging! Awesome!
Get one before this happens to you.
Our kitchen mess after a minor grease fire melted the bottom of the microwave. We spent about $600 replacing stuff and on cleaning products, plus about 20 hours scrubbing soot, dust, and molten plastic off ceiling, walls, cabinets, stuff in cabinets, counters, floors, stuff in the next room over.....just an awful mess, and totally avoidable. If I had known these existed and thrown one over the stove instead, problem solved. Now I know too late, save yourselves the trouble!
Safety for my family
I already had emergency car and home kits, but there were a few items I was missing. I added the Fire Blanket for my home and the few emergency sleeping bags, water straws and a SunCharge for my car. I am all about safety for my family and I'm glad to see companies out there like Prepared Hero who care about informing with useful content rather than just pushing a product.
Great in Emergency Kit
These make a great addition to your vehicle emergency kit! We keep a set of 3 in the trunk of each vehicle. The lights are very bright and noticeable. They have multiple lighting modes and are magnetic so you can easily stick to the side of your vehicle. Quality product.
Construction Worker Approved!
Must have for safety! Love these flares! Ordered a set as my car is getting older so I think it is best to be prepared in case of an emergency. Tested them out in the garage, and the flares are really bright!

I just received 8 emergency sleeping bags for my family. I pray we never have to use them, but they are a great addition to our survival kits. I plan on picking up more of these soon while they are on discount, I want to give them out to the homeless this winter.
A great decision
Once your home is out of power, you realize how important flashlight is. It’s the reason why I purchased this flashlight immediately. A great decision I made. High quality flash light. As the picture, there three lights on the side as well. It’s small and convenient to used. The led is super bright. It also has SOS mode to get the attractions! Its perfect for home and outdoor. The flashlight is chargeable! Great purchase! Highly recommended!
