  • Holiday Gift Pack Giveaway!

    Update (11/19/2012) - This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for participating! We have a winner!

    Update: If you have trouble getting your comment to appear, you can post as "Anonymous" or leave your comment on Facebook. We will pick a winner first thing Monday morning. Good luck to all!!

    This holiday season, you can give a small gift (the 100-hour Emergency Candle in holiday red) and a big gift (the gift of preparedness) in one!

    Many of your friends, family, or neighbors might not have the resources or information they need about preparedness and emergency supplies.
    Today we're giving away a full set of Emergency Candle gift combos. That's 12 candles, bags, and bows. You could keep a couple for yourself, and still have 10 to give to family and friends! (Or you could give them all away, of course).
    We suggest giving one of these Emergency Candle Gift Combos along with other preparedness information your gift recipient could use, like:
    • An Emergency Essentials catalog
    • Some of our Prep School modules printed out in a 3-ring binder or a simple folder
    • A printed out emergency kit checklist
    • Storm matches so they can light their emergency candle in any conditions
    • Other items you think might help them get started
    To enter, take a look around our website (beprepared.com), and let us know what's on YOUR preparedness wishlist.

    Then just

    1. Enter the name of the product(s) you're wishing for in the comments
    2. Include your email address in your comment so we can contact you if you're the winner.

    You can also let us know if you'll keep some of the candles or give them all away if you win. (We're not judging--I would absolutely keep two for myself; I don't own any yet).

  • Urban Girl - What I've Been Up To

    Urban Girl here.

    Can you believe it’s almost the middle of November? Where did the year go? It seems like I was just posting about planting my garden, and now Utah has a foot of snow on the ground.

    Here’s a quick update on what I’ve been up to since I last posted:

    I got a car kit put together with a basic 3-day emergency kit and a basic car repair kit. I had a spare red backpack hanging around from my college days, and I had some extra first aid items on hand, as well. So I assembled those into the backpack, added some bottled water, and got some MRE’s and a Millenium bar combo to add into the kit. That covers most of the very basics; now I just need to add an emergency bag or bivvy, a headlamp, and some spare batteries.

    I bought some fire extinguishers. We had a kitchen fire at my house last year, and no one could find an extinguisher, so they used powdered sugar to put it out. Luckily that worked, and the fire was extinguished before it forced us to evacuate. But now we can avoid scrambling for something to put our fires in the future.

    I bought a few packs of hand warmers. Winter is long in Utah, and if I got stranded on the road, I would definitely want some of these readily available.

    I also purchased a Tote-able Toilet with 2 Enzyme packets. Enough said, right?

    So, that’s what I’ve been up to. What about you?
