PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- (http://www.myprgenie.com) -- In support of the people of Haiti following this week's devastation, 1800PREPARE.COM has committed 10% of its 2010 first quarter profits to help rebuild the country. "It's not something we planned for," said Paul Faust, Co-founder, "Disasters are never planned; we feel it's our responsibility to respond in a meaningful way."
Recognizing the needs of the fast growing, disaster preparedness market, 1800Prepare.com was conceived and developed by two emergency responders, Gregg Hamerschlag and Paul Faust. The inspiration for this disaster preparedness company evolved from personal disaster experience coupled with the world's increasing need for emergency survival information and products. Both partners discerned a burgeoning need for personal, family and company disaster planning and equipping.
Recent events have shown that natural and man-made disasters are devastating to those who are un-prepared. Disasters and emergencies take many forms and they often strike suddenly, without warning. These potentially catastrophic events occur in every region of the world. 1-800-PREPARE(TM) produces survival planning information and guides and offers a wide range of disaster preparedness products. The company's "3 day kits" are a great starting point.
"From the outset, we desired to create a Website rich in preparedness, safety and survival information, as pre-planning for emergencies yields better protection. Our company is dedicated to providing consumers with high-quality survival and safety preparation gear," said Gregg Hamerschlag, Co-founder. "We believe that 'the best defense is a good offense.' It is important to prepare ourselves, our families, our loved ones and our business colleagues for any and all emergency or catastrophic situations."
Founded in 2006, 1800PREPARE.COM strongly believes that every single person should be prepared to take care of themselves, their family, their friends and their business should disaster strike. The situation may be temporary or we may need to take care of ourselves until help arrives. One thing we can all do is prepare ourselves with the knowledge, plans and necessary supplies.
