PHOENIX, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Online emergency food and survival products supplier PrepareCo.com (www.PrepareCo.com) today opened its website to the public. The site specializes in long-term preparedness food storage and critical emergency equipment and supplies including solar ovens, portable generators, medical kits as well as water storage and purification. Food options include freeze dry, dehydrated and bulk foods which can be stored for up to 30 years.
A key feature of the site is a tool that helps both sophisticated and unsophisticated buyers quickly recognize what supplies are needed in order to sustain during extended periods of stressful and challenging living conditions, e.g. during pandemics, hurricanes, natural and man-made disasters. PrepareCo.com's exclusive food calculator tells buyers how much of what kinds of foods to consider, along with their calorie levels, number of servings, average shelf life and required storage space. Buyers can then adjust the optimum recommendation to best match their taste and budget. The calculator takes into account the number of people being covered and the desired period of sustainment.
"We are very concerned by the general sense of individual complacency and 100% dependence on local emergency services," said PrepareCo.com founder Aaron Hawkins. "During any natural or man-made disaster emergency services are taxed. Food, water, medical supplies, power and much more will be in short supply. We're endorsing a sense of personal responsibility. Families should not be put in a position of saying 'I wish I would have... This is not extreme it is social prudence!"
"We live in a reaction-based society," says Hawkins. "With our current H1N1 virus situation it doesn't take much imagination to see how something, that even with months of advance warning, could paralyze our society. Just think if something of similar magnitude hit without warning."
"Preparedness through PrepareCo.com is a responsible approach to sustaining your family or business," Hawkins noted.
PrepareCo.com is the online division of CECURUS (www.CECURUS.com), an emergency preparedness consulting business, including sub-surface shelters, which caters to the needs of high net-worth families and their associated businesses/enterprises.
