Be Prepared with Pelican Before Disaster Strikes

Be Prepared with Pelican Before Disaster Strikes

The storm of the century is about to blow through town. It’s all but guaranteed that power will be out for days. Batten down the hatches, because you’re riding this one out. Thank goodness you can get Pelican gear to see you through!
When a big winter storm or a major hurricane is coming to town, usually you have at least a day or two to prepare. That is plenty of time to pull out your Pelican Elite Cooler and prepare it for action. Pre-chilling your cooler for 12–24 hours before you’re going to be using it is standard operating procedure, and if the power goes out you’ll be glad you pre-chilled. The insulation in your cooler will be ready to hold in all the cold as you salvage the perishable food in your fridge. While a 70QT may be big enough to save everything in the fridge and freezer, even a 20QT is big enough to save a half gallon of milk and the deli meat and cheese that will let you make sandwiches for the next few days since you may not be able to cook.
Of course, not every disaster can be forecast a few days in advance. Tornadoes and earthquakes can strike almost anywhere with little warning. But that’s why you can keep an emergency preparedness kit ready and waiting in a Mobile Protect backpack. The MPB35 has enough room to hold a kit for a small family. This durable backpack is made of water-resistant nylon with compression molded impact zones to keep the contents of the bag safe against rough handling. There are also a number of internal and external pockets to keep your preparedness kit organized and easy to use.
Speaking of keeping things organized and easy to use, don’t underestimate the power of a Pelican dry box. These protective cases are small enough to fit inside an emergency preparedness kit, but can be packed with vital gear for an emergency.

The Ruck Cases have a rigid divider tray and flexible lid organizer that are both designed with a MOLLE-style loop system to keep the gear where you want it. The R40 is big enough to house a small tool kit, while the R60 is a great size for a first aid kit, and both will fit inside your larger emergency preparedness kit.
The G40 Go Case is also great for keeping your emergency gear organized. It’s great for storing a fully charged power bank, and the cell phone tray inside has pockets in the back where you can keep cash tucked safely away. Or you can skip trying to find a power bank that fits and get the G40 Charge Case, which comes with a Qi-certified wireless charging battery pack. All of these dry boxes can be counted on to be dust–, water– and crush-proof, on top of being backed by a lifetime warranty.

Ready For Any Emergency

Making it through the storm is only half the battle. Once it is over you need to be ready to deal with potential power and utility outages, blocked roads that make getting to the grocery store or pharmacy impossible, or even the need to evacuate. But being prepared with Pelican means you will be up to whatever challenges arise.
