5 Essential Survival Gadgets for Natural Disasters
November 8, 2012 1 Comment
You can’t really prepare for specific natural disasters because you never know when mother nature – or HAARP – is going to raise hell on our planet. However, there are some tools that we believe could come in handy during unexpected disasters, and we would love to share them with all of you potential victims. Along with these gadgets comes common sense as well. If there is a mandatory evacuation in your area, just leave. Don’t be a tough guy.
5. BioLite Camp Stove
The BioLite Camp Stove, designed for outdoor adventure and emergency preparedness, makes cooking on wood as clean, safe and easy as petroleum fuels while powering electronics off-grid. Yes, you can charge your iPhone on this stove by simply burning wood. There is no fuel you need to buy and carry with you – the energy source is simply twigs and wood. This product is essential not only for camping, but for when you lose power in your house. You can cook while charging electronics right in your house.
4. Life Armor
Japan is no stranger to mother natures wrath, and a company there is marketing a crush-proof, floating ball as one of their solutions. They call it Life Armor. It can withstand up to 9,3 tons of compressive pressure, and can take a plunge from 25m. Sounds bizarre, but would it hurt to have this in your basement or garage just incase something does go down on December 21st?
3. Flo n’ Go DuraMax Gas Can
Who would have thought that something as simple as a gas can would become such a valuable item to 99% of New Yorker’s this month? They have sold out basically everywhere, and plenty of New Yorker’s are in the same predicament where their cars ran out of gas and they can’t get them to the gas station. Gasoline is our main source of fuel – it is important to make it as easily accessible as possible.
Sufficient water storage is one of the most difficult tasks to achieve in emergency preparedness. It takes a lot of space to store bottled water. You can use this bottle to filter rain water, pond water, etc to make it safe to drink. This water bottle was developed after Hurricane Katrina. Most natural disasters cause shortages in clean drinking water, so this is a must have for a survivalist.
Plain and simple. Everyone should have some sort of rope handy. I’m not going to start to list reasons why a rope would come in handy, but you really don’t want to be in a position where your saying, “Fuck, I really could use a rope right now” and you don’t have one. A knife is pretty essential too, but I figured everyone should have at least one knife in their house.
