When I hear the phrase “emergency preparedness,” I immediately picture lots of camouflage, rows and rows of canned goods in a dimly-lit basement and a whole lot of panic.
Panic is not what you need in case of an emergency; you need a calm, cool head and to be prepared ahead of time. Ok, not so scary after all. This is the philosophy behind Boltwell, a one-of-a-kind emergency preparedness resource that gives everyday families tools to help keep loved ones safe during unexpected events.
Summertime can bring many unexpected events (hopefully not, but you know, always good to be aware) such as bad thunder storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, brush fires (all of these depend on what part of the country you reside) or smaller more day-to-day emergencies that pop up like your car breaking down, a power outage, or a pet emergency. Emergency preparedness is a topic that’s seldom addressed but it’s incredibly important and provides peace of mind knowing that you and your family are ready to take on whatever comes your way — may that be a fire, flood or even a flat tire. Boltwell is a brand that makes the prep process light-hearted, laid-back and even a little bit fun — not scary or stressful in the slightest!
While most emergency preparedness systems on the market can be panic-inducing, Boltwell provides everyday families with the tools to keep loved ones safe during unexpected events without going overboard. Boltwell’s Kits and Add-On Supplies are compiled of gotta-have-it gadgets and gizmos so that you can easily check “keep my family prepared” off your to-do list without thinking too much about the scary stuff. Boltwell is all about simplified solutions toward purposeful prepping. There’s no camouflage or doom-and-gloom here!
My picks for preparedness:
- Having a B*66:Car Kit in each car. This kit is your personal roadside assistance when you’re not roadworthy. Whether you’re cruising down Route 66 or you’re a block from home, its snacks, blanket, and flares provide comfort (and visibility!) while you wait for help. It also has tools to help get you get yourself out of an unfortunate jam, like a tire kit and shovel.
- Keeping 2 of the B*72:Foundation Kits in our home. The B*72 is the foundation of the Boltwell preparedness system, it has virtually everything two people need to get through a 72-hour emergency, including medical supplies, water purification solutions, energy bars, tools, makeshift shelter, and personal care products. It’s the cornerstone on which you build your family’s emergency preparedness plan. And because no two families are alike, Boltwell gives you the option to customize your kit with Add-On Supplies. These Add-On collections are designed to address situations that are more likely to occur based on your personal circumstances, particularly where you live.
- b*120: Power Outage Kit because there have been more than a few times we have lost power (during the winter and the spring!) for more than 24 hours. When the power goes out, lighting some candles is fun. At first. Then you realize without your 120 volts that your cooktop won’t cook, the water heater is cold, and your iPhone is low on juice. Let the b*120 (our Power Outage Add-On Supplies) save the day! It helps you turn lights on, cook up, listen in, and recharge—all without a plug.
