SALT LAKE CITY, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legacy Food Storage, a manufacturer of good tasting, high-quality gourmet meals for food storage and emergency use, today launched emergency kits specific to the needs of individuals and families in both hurricane- and tornado-prone regions. The hurricane and tornado "bug out" bags provide essentials that are easy to carry and use in a discreet backpack for those forced to evacuate their homes. These include shelter options such as blankets and tents, water storage and purification tablets, meal-replacement shakes for sustained nourishment, and many others.
Earthquake, flood and cold weather kits – as well as "bug-in" kits for those required to shelter in place for an extended period of time - will be available within the next few weeks.
"While much of what a family would need when evacuating would be the same no matter what kind of severe weather, there are certain items beneficial for tornados that you likely wouldn't need during a hurricane – and vice versa," said Phil Cox, CEO, Legacy Food Storage. "For example, those 'bugging out' during a hurricane would benefit from a vinyl poncho and possibly an advanced water filter in case water lines became contaminated and closed off for an undetermined length of time, while those in a tornado might need a NOAA weather radio to keep track of tornados in their area at all times."
