    12 Days of Giveaways--Day 12

    On the 12th Day of Christmas, Emergency Essentials gave to me . . . the Grand Prize—a Trekker II Emergency Kit!

    12 Days of Giveaways--Day 12: Trekker 2 Emergency Kit (two person)

    Have two kids rooming together who need an emergency kit? Do you know a couple soon to be married? Or are you just trying to update your own emergency supplies? The Trekker II-Two Person Emergency Kit will provide food, water, and emergency supplies designed to feed and comfort two people for up to three days.

    This emergency kit comes in two convenient backpacks—one large and one medium—for easy transport. (This kit is intended for use by two people who are together; we don’t recommend dividing it between two people living in different locations.)

    In addition to the basics of two Mainstay 3,600-calorie food bars, 12 Aqua Blox of drinking water, two ponchos, two reflective sleeping bags, a tube tent, and hand and body warmers, this kit contains extras like:

    • 1 Headlamp with batteries
    • Strike-anywhere matches and fuel-fire starter
    • 100-hour candle
    • 72-piece first-aid kit with booklet
    • Sunscreen
    • Hygiene items
    • AM/FM radio with batteries
    • Emergency duct tape
    • 2 types of emergency whistles
    • 2 N95 respiratory masks

    If you don’t already have an emergency kit, this could be yours—and if you do have one, it would make a welcome wedding, anniversary, holiday, or all-occasion gift to give any couple!

    Just take the short quiz below to enter the giveaway. Remember, you can receive an additional entry if you share today’s giveaway post publicly on your Facebook page. You have until Friday, December 20th at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time to enter.

    12 Days of Giveaways--Day Eleven

    On the Eleventh Day of Christmas, Emergency Essentials gave to me . . . the Basics Emergency Kit!

    12 days of Giveaways--Day 11: Basics Emergency Kit

    This kit works as either a basic emergency kit or an add-on kit to the supplies you already own. It’s easy to pick and choose what items you may need from this kit to add to an existing one. Or just toss the items into a backpack and voilà—you have a completely new emergency kit.

    A basic emergency kit is a great gift for you or your loved ones because it can help you prepare for a number of situations. Use it at the office, send it with your kids to school, or keep it stashed in the trunk of your car. No matter your emergency, the basics kit will keep you warm and fed during a school or office lockdown or if a flat tire strands you in the middle of nowhere. The kit includes food, water, light, warmth, communication, and more.

    Check out the links above and take our short quiz below to enter to win!  Remember, you can get an additional entry by sharing this post on your Facebook page. Come back tomorrow for our final 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway.

    Merry Christmas & Good Luck!

    12 Days of Giveaways--Day 10

     

    On the tenth day of Christmas, Emergency Essentials gave to me . . .

    A #10 can of FiredUp! and a Sparkie™ Fire Starter

    12 Days of Giveaways--Day 10: Fired Up! and Sparkie Fire starters

    Fired Up!:  This fire starter is the perfect addition to your emergency supplies, camping gear, and even BBQ-ing equipment. . . Made of volcanic rock material mixed with wood pellets, Fired Up! is water-repellent and has a 30+ year shelf-life. Two cups of Fired Up! mixed with your tinder (or even by itself) can burn for roughly 5 minutes, enough time to pile on your kindling and fuel. This safe and reliable fuel source is great for lighting campfires or preparing charcoal briquettes. Fired Up! works well with the Volcano Collapsible Stove and the Kelly Kettle.

    Sparkie: We are really excited about this brand new fire starter because it’s really unique! For starters, it’s a one-handed fire starter with a retractable flint-based bar and built in carbide striker that can light over 100 fires! Simply press the flint bar down on a flat surface (preferably, next to your tinder) and you’ll generate instant sparks. Secondly, the Sparkie is known for its precision: you can directionally target the sparks to hit your tinder every time. Lastly, it can start a fire in inclement weather. Wind, rain, snow, the Sparkie can light a fire and get you warm fast.

     12 Days of Giveaways--Day Nine

    On the ninth day of Christmas, Emergency Essentials gave to me . . . the gift of communication.

    Today’s giveaway item is the Kaito Voyager V1 Dynamo and Solar Shortwave Radio/Flashlight.

    12 Days of Giveaways--Day Nine: A Voyager VI Shortwave Radio

     

    The word “dynamo” is a good description for this small but powerful multi-featured radio and flashlight. It accesses both regular AM/FM and shortwave bands to give you a constant stream of weather updates, warnings, and forecasts.

    The flashlight has a super-bright LED light with a USB port to power small electronic devices, including most smartphones (it does not power Apple products). The Kaito Voyager has a built-in HD speaker and headphone jack so you can listen to your music or forecasts alone or with your family, friends, and neighbors.

    Keep your radio charged using one of four options for powering this radio’s internal battery. These four charging options include:

    • 3 standard AAA batteries
    • Solar power, via a built-in solar panel
    • Through the USB port
    • By hand cranking: one minute of cranking provides fifteen minutes of listening or one hour of light

    The value of this 9th Day of Christmas gift is $21.99—unless you’re in a situation where you’ll depend upon it—then it’s priceless! This gift is great for camping, outdoor adventures, or to use in an emergency.

    12 Days of Giveaways!-Day Six

    On the sixth day of Christmas, Emergency Essentials gave to me . . .

    Freeze Dried Neapolitan Ice Cream and MyChoice Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa Chocolate

    12 Days of Giveaways-Day6-Hot Cocoa and Freeze Dried Ice Cream

    If you’ve never tasted Freeze Dried Ice Cream, you’re in for a treat! What’s cool about this ice cream is that it looks like it should be cold and creamy, but instead it’s light and crunchy. Once you place it in your mouth, it will melt into the familiar creamy taste of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream. It’s a fun and novel dessert to serve anytime, but would be a great mood-lifter during an emergency—especially for children. Each can contains 16 individual slices. Our Freeze Dried Ice comes in four varieties: Neapolitan, Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Ice Cream Sandwiches.

    MyChoice Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa is a rich, comforting drink to curl up with on a cold winter night. The best part is that because it’s packaged in a double-enameled can, it will last for up to 25+ years (unopened, of course). Check out this article on shelf life for more tips on preserving your food. Even though it can last up to 25+ years, it’s up to you how long you can hold out against your cravings!
