Elite Survival Kit
With the increase in violent weather and extreme storms more and more people are taking steps to prepare for survival situations. When such events and situations occur there is the potential of losing power, utilities and communications for extended periods of time. Even little things like the power to run water pumps compromise safety and the health of everyone involved. Based on recommendations from the federal government, a well prepared survival kit is indispensable next to having a well thought out and communicated survival and bug out plan.
