PINEY FLATS, Tenn., Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released statements to local communities warning that they may not be capable of offering immediate support to those hit by natural disasters, like hurricanes, and residents and local governments should have alternate plans in place.
While speaking at the Governor's Hurricane Conference this year, Brock Long, FEMA Chief Administrator warned, "If you're waiting on FEMA to run your commodities, that's not the solution. I can't guarantee that we can be right on time to backfill everything you need."
This news comes after a devastating hurricane in 2017 that left many without critical food and supplies for days, and even weeks. Many hurricane experts are forecasting that the 2018 hurricane season could be just as severe. With the 2018 hurricane season upon us, it's time to consider emergency contingency plans that may not include expectations for outside government aid, at least in the critical first few days after a disaster.
Long said, "If you don't have the ability to do things such as provide your own food and water and your own commodities to your citizens for the first 48 to 72 hours, I'm asking you to consider pre-event management concepts."
The best way to be properly prepared is for each citizen to make their own emergency preparation plan for them and their family. As stated above, it's critical to at least have food, water, and basic supplies to provide some level of support for all members of the family for the first 72 hours.
A great option is a pre-packaged emergency meal kit that has been purpose-built to provide all the nutrition needs for a person. Chef Minute Meals, Inc., one of the nation's leading suppliers of emergency meal kits has developed the 72-Hour Emergency Meal Kit specifically for this purpose. Each hermetically sealed meal kit has everything a person needs to prepare meals for 3 days. This includes a breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks for each day.
The 72-Hour Emergency Meal Kit is the perfect option because it provides non-freeze dried meals that can be heated up without any outside heat source or extra water for boiling. Chef Minute Meals, Inc. has developed a patented heating element system to heat the food. The system uses a proprietary heating element and water activator (included) to prepare fast and healthy meals.
In order to feel safe and prepared for this year's hurricane season, be sure to make your own plan to protect and provide for your family. Have a 72-Hour Emergency Meal Kit for each member of your family and know that you will have healthy and delicious meals to make it through those critical first few days without outside support.
