SALT LAKE CITY, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legacy Food Storage, a manufacturer or emergency food storage, today launched new "bug-in" kits for emergencies that require residents to shelter at home. Unlike Legacy's "bug-out" kits – released in April as tornado and hurricane evacuation kits), the "bug-in" kits are designed for remaining in one place, include sanitation packs for use in shelters, and otherwise supplement food storage and other emergency goods already saved.

"Bug-in" kits can be used during power outages, when an emergency means leaving home might be hazardous, or when public services and stores are closed or at a standstill. These kits are also beneficial to store in tornado shelters.

"While it is essential to prepare to evacuate, it is equally important to prepare to pack it in until it is safe to leave, or until the crisis has passed," said Phil Cox, founder and CEO of Legacy Food Storage. "In extreme weather, power outages and post-emergency cleanup, being prepared to stay in—be it in your home or in a shelter—can be the difference between safety and added crisis. That's why we've developed our "bug-in" kits, for that added security in any emergency."  

"Bug-In" kits include:

  • Sturdy toilet box
  • Toilet sanitation pack
  • Aluminum stove
  • 4-hour burn fuel canisters
  • 1 liter water bottle
  • Pry bar
  • Rubberized flashlight
  • Emergency candles
  • Waterproof matches
  • AM/FM radio
  • Water purification tablets
  • Can opener
  • First aid kit
  • Hygiene products
  • Emergency prep guide book

A deluxe edition also includes a light stick, survival whistle, survival rope, duct tape, utility gloves, a knife, and a deck of playing cards.
