Rainy/gloomy Saturday, and I’m closing out the first week of 2014 National Preparedness Month!
“Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare”
Saturday Stuff right?
This week’s theme is consistent with FEMA’s National Preparedness Campaign: Reconnect with Family After a Disaster.
#6: Have at least two (2) flashlights w/ batteries to help navigate in the dark & keep your family together #NatlPrep #Prepared2014
Pictured above is just one of the three flashlights that I keep in my everyday bag.
Reconnecting with my family after a disaster means that I have preparedness items for them too. It would be worth noting that each flashlight uses the same type of batteries and all operate/function the same (rear push button and twist-on action). This brand and similar power source compatibility allows everyone to have the same gear.
2 is 1 and one is none right? Well, I guess in this case, it’s 3 is 1 and one is none.
For those inquiring on my equipment specifics, I have a Surefire M2 Centurion, a Surefire A2 Aviator, and a Surefire G2 Nitrolon.
Also, a simple red tape marking allows us to easily identify what equipment is ours.
At night, a great flashlight allow you to quickly identify your family members amongst the sea of cheap weaker flashlights in the neighborhood. Trust me, at night, you want the best most powerful flashlights around.
So have flashlights and batteries ready for all members of your family.
Keeping tools ready for your family is another important parts of keeping your family together during and after a disaster.
