Emergency Preparedness Statistics
At the beginning of each year we see a renewed interest in families getting prepared as people think about New Year resolutions and home organization. The reality is that 78% of Americans aren't prepared for a disaster in terms of food, water, & supplies, despite those good intentions.
With that in mind, we declared the last week of January each year to be ‘Emergency Kit Week’ -- a time where we bring awareness to the importance of every family having an emergency kit; highlighting information from experts and our own customers to encourage everyone to get it done!
78% Aren't Ready
According to a 2020 poll from the Associated Press, 78% of Americans aren't ready for a natural disaster in terms of the necessary food, water, or supplies.
That's how long experts like FEMA and Ready.gov recommend you be prepared for with food, water, and supplies for your entire family.
Have a Plan
According to Security Magazine (2019), 42% of Americans do not have an evacuation plan and only 19% had a family meet-up plan.
