First Aid Kits

"Before a disaster, men and women will make a choice.  They will choose to be victims of the disaster or victors over the disaster.​​

One choice requires no action whatsoever and ends in despair.  The other requires preparatory action but results in safety, refuge and peace of mind."

​Did you know that 70% of all disaster rescues are performed by neighbors, not first responders!  In a typical city the actual ratio of citizens to first responders can be in excess of 1,000 to 1.

Do you part to prepare yourself, your family,  and neighborhood.   The little investment you do now can yield huge dividends in disaster situations.
