How Prepared Are You Really?
As the severe weather season is upon us, it’s a good time to take stock and restock emergency supplies; especially in the event of a power outage or the inability to leave your house or shelter. Do you have an emergency plan in place? Do you have enough water and supplies to sustain you for 3 days? How about 7 days? Or 14 days?
If after taking inventory you find that your emergency preparedness is low, check out Lehman’s General Store to get the necessary items you need for your peace of mind. While they have several practical goods to make off-grid living easy, they have several items that are essential to your emergency preparedness kit.
Having access to clean and potable water during an emergency is priority number one. With Lehman’s Lifestraw Flex, you can make most water in your area safe to drink.
The straw is actually a 2-stage water filter that can be used a personal straw or a straw used in tandem with your water bottle. Lifestraw Flex instantly removes 99.9% of parasites and bacteria. Additionally, it reduces chlorine and lead in water so it safe for you and your family to drink. It’s versatile, easy to use and has a replaceable carbon filter.
Even better, for every LifeStraw you purchase, a child in a developing country will receive safe drinking water for an entire school year.

Now that you have drinkable water in place, it’s time to focus on food. With Lehman’s Dietz Oil Lantern Cooker, you have the best of both worlds: a light source as well as a heat source.

It burns K1 kerosene and can anchor to the ground with a snap-on bracket; you don’t have to worry about it tipping over.

When you have light, it makes things a little less scary, especially in an emergency. With the Aladdin Genie III Lamp, you have the option of using it as a shelf lamp, wall lamp or hanging lamp. It has a kerosene wick that burns bright white and uses less fuel.When you pair it with three year parts kit, you are that much more prepared for emergencies.
No one wants to be taken by surprise in the event of the an emergency. You’ve seen how natural disasters can paralyze cities and towns for an indeterminate amount of time. Nothing is more nerve wracking than not knowing when help is arriving.
