Tornado season is just around the corner, and hurricane season isn’t far behind. Before the next catastrophe hits, make sure your home and workplace are equipped with LED emergency area lights. Remember, in the aftermath of a disaster, it may be difficult (if not impossible) to get access to energy. You will need reliable, energy-efficient area lights to get anything done – and to stay safe. Our COAST LED lanterns are an excellent choice, since they boast long run times.

Hurricane Sandy: Lessons in Disaster Preparation

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

Hurricane Sandy & Marblehead [Front Street 7]Hurricane Sandy’s path along the East Coast was one of incredible destruction. Although the storm was officially downgraded from hurricane to “superstorm” just before hitting the New Jersey shore, Sandy is predicted to have caused at least $20 billion in property damage. Ninety-four people lost their lives in the storm. As survivors piece their lives back together, the rest of us naturally wonder what we can learn from this horrific event. Hopefully, Sandy’s terror will spur all Americans to better prepare for emergencies.

COAST Emergency Area Lights (EAL) Put Focus on Disaster Prep Kit

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

Earthquake Survival KitIf there’s anything the recent flooding in Florida and devastating wildfires in the western U.S. have taught us, it’s that disaster can strike at any moment, without a smidgeon of warning. Indeed, across the globe, those who are in the path of floods, earthquakes or fires rarely get much of a head start. In Russia’s recent flooding, many families had virtually no warning of the coming floodwaters. In Colorado’s recent rash of wildfires, a telephone system intended to warn residents failed to function properly. And many Japanese in 2011’s devastating tsunami had just 15 minutes of warning.

When time is the only thing that stands between your family and an impending disaster, it’s extremely helpful to have a pre-packed disaster prep kit (sometimes called a BOB, or Bug Out Bag) ready to go. That way, even if you only have a five-minute head start, you can grab your bag and run, knowing your kit contains all the essentials you’ll need for two or three days away from home. (Typically, this is the maximum amount of time needed for government agencies and nonprofits to lend a hand to disaster victims.)

What type of emergency LED light do you keep on hand for when you find yourself in the dark? An LED emergency flashlight is always good to have at the ready, but in an extended emergency situation, a mere flashlight can be problematic when you’re trying to light up a room or perform a task. Fortunately, that’s where emergency area lights come in.
