Get Prepared, Stay Prepared.

As average people, we shouldn’t need an end-of-the-world scenario to show us the importance of disaster preparedness. This past year reminded us how much devastation natural disasters can cause and just how frail we are as human beings. Unfortunately, for many, preparedness is of utmost importance during or after an emergency situation, not before. But for the thousands of people who have been affected by life threatening emergency situations like hurricanes, fires and earthquakes, proper disaster preparedness proved to be a lesson they’d likely never forget.

“I really think that we have a long way to go to create a true culture of preparedness within our citizenry in America. No American, no citizen, no visitor to this country is immune to disaster.” - Brock Long, Chief of FEMA

If you think the natural disasters that occurred in 2017 are unlikely to repeat in 2018, you are alarmingly mistaken. Natural disasters are unpredictable, and those who take the time to prepare before a disaster occurs will have a significant survival advantage over those who do not.

Preparing for Threats

We are thrilled to announce that our 4-Person Premium Survival Kit with 72-Hours of Emergency Preparedness and First Aid Supplies was ranked #4 in Wiki.ezvid.com's 2018 list of the 10 Best Survival Backpacks.

A representative from Ezvid Wiki explained the scope of what they do, and its impressive.

“Compiled with twenty-eight hours of research, this newly published Wiki in the outdoors category is a broad-ranging, impartial assessment of survival backpack options available to consumers in the United States.”

This is a true honor and further assurance that our mission to provide customers with the very best in the emergency preparedness industry is being achieved.

“Founded in 2011, Ezvid Wiki was the world's first video wiki, and is now among the top 3,000 websites in the United States. Our YouTube channel has 265,000 subscribers, 156 million views since founding, and we have informed over $200 million in purchasing decisions to date."

The 4 Person Premium Survival Kit Breakdown

For those who may not be aware, lets take a deeper look into our 4-Person Premium Survival Kit. Our kit is broken down into two bags and designed to address 5 unique categories in emergency preparation.

  1. FIRST AID: When disaster strikes, minor injuries can quickly become major problems. Our disaster preparedness kit comes equipped with a 85-piece first aid kit, glowsticks, 5-1 emergency whistle (compass, flint, signal mirror, whistle and carrying case), leather palm work gloves and medical face masks 
  2. WATER: In an emergency, one of the most important things to have on hand is clean drinking water. First My Family emergency kits are equipped with a 72-hour supply of emergency water, per person. 
  3. FOOD: Time is of the essence during an emergency, and food is often forgotten. Our disaster survival kit comes with four 2400-calorie food rations packaged in easy grab-and-go bags for added convenience. Food is nut-free and produced from non-GMO ingredients for allergy sensitivities.
  4. SHELTER: When displaced by an emergency, you need the right tools to keep your family safe and sheltered. Our disaster preparedness kit includes emergency ponchos, mylar blankets, a Lifeline LED flashlight and a multi-function pocket knife. 
  5. WARMTH: Disasters can leave you exposed to the elements, which is why survival preparation is vital. Our emergency kit for natural disasters contains body warmers and waterproof matches to keep your family warm.

Come fire, flood, storm or quake you will have a great base of preps to assure you are ready to face these threats. We all need to pay emergency preparedness the attention it deserves. This is particularly true of those with families. 

The Importance of Personalized Emergency Preparedness

Of course, your survival kit doesn’t have to stop with the items our seasoned emergency and disaster professionals packed into it. Our team set out to create something that would carry a family of 4 through a common disaster, and the kits' contents include a broad range of base items that people from all walks of life can benefit from. 

Of course, there is no way we could have personalized our kits for each one of our customers - that is where you come in. It takes personalization and an understanding of your unique personal qualities to truly create a survival kit that meets all your needs.

To do this effectively you must look at each living creature in your home and compile a list of their needs. What does it take to keep your dog Fido healthy? Do you have a child with eczema? You must store all the items you need in quantities that will standup to a disaster. How about medicines for special conditions and vision care? 

You need to also consider entertainment. In this electronic age, must have options for when the lights go out and even when the batteries we packed drain away. Pack up your favorite books and your children’s favorite toys to keep the whole family busy until help arrives. 

Use our survival kit to create a solid base for your emergency preparedness then add your personal touches to assure you have piece of mind in a disaster. Get prepared, stay prepared!

3 Predictions for Season 7B of The Walking Dead

So, after what seems like an absolute eternity, AMC's The Walking Dead will be returning Sunday February 12, 2017 at 9/8c.

But just what can we expect from the second half of a season that has already claimed both Glenn and Abraham, bashed to death by Lucille at the behest of Negan?

As will always be the case, the comics offer up a plethora of solid theories as to the way the remainder of the season will pan out, whilst a number of clues have already subtly cropped up on the show:

All out War: After beating Rick into submission by beating in the heads of Glenn and Abraham, it seemed that all was lost for our protagonist. Negan’s brutal killing off Spencer, however – within the walls of Rick’s home – may just cause our heroes to ‘Rise Up’, as the promotional poster and tweets have so duly promised. What this all could account to, if the comics are to be followed, is a rising up of the group as a whole, united together against the ever-present – and worsening – threat of Negan and his cronies. War is coming.

Allies from far and wide: To fight a war though, you need allies. Especially when you’re lacking in any kind of ammunition… This is where Oceanside comes in. You know, the community Tara promised never to return to? Let’s be honest, she’ll probably return there. With Rick. And the rest. Now whether they’ll enlist Oceanside as allies or simply steal their guns is anyone’s guess but safe to say, I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of the women warriors. Another ally should come in the form of King Ezekiel and his tiger. Obviously, Carol and Morgan are both under his rule – kind of – so a reunion of the ménage à trois of Carol, Morgan and Rick seems likely. They’ll just be bringing a pet tiger with them this time…

Stranger Danger? Whilst Rick and Aaron are trying to navigate a not-so-quiet row through a lake of bobbing zombies in the mid-season finale, a mysterious figure is seen to be scoping them out from the shore. Is he – or she – a friend or a foe? Will they stand together with Rick and his allies or against them? For now, at least, we don’t know who this person is or what their intentions are. All we know for sure is that they are certain to prove pivotal, one way or the other.

If ‘The Walking Dead’ has taught us anything over the years, it is that the age old mantra of ‘Fail to prepare; prepare to fail’ holds true. It’s a pretty recurrent theme and has been the downfall of many a villain that has come up against our motley crew. The Governor, Gareth and Jugular-less Joe to name but a few, all failed to properly prepare for the preparedness of our band of zombie slayers.

When you take all that into account, why would you not prepare your family in the same way? Sure, ‘it’s just a TV show’, you may cry, but can you afford to take that risk?

Are you a Gareth or a Rick? 

Ideal for couples or as a gift for a loved one, The Walking Dead Survival Kit contains an abundance of supplies to last you a full 72 hours in an emergency. Contained within a high quality military style messenger bag, this kit is essential preparation for a Zombie apocalypse or, indeed, more generic emergencies.

For the lone survivor, you needn’t look no further than the Zombie Preparedness Apocalypse Kit (ZPAK). Confined within a ZPAK branded water bottle is the perfect starter kit of a custom carabineer, emergency whistle and other essential survival items, whilst a Walking Dead ZPAK artwork is included to, no doubt, remind you of the artistic beauty of the pre-apocalyptic world.

Holiday Safety Tips

The holiday season is upon us and that means many of us are headed home to spend quality time with family, friends, and loved ones. 

No matter your location, it cannot be denied that this is a beautiful time of year. However, just because it’s the holiday season doesn’t mean emergencies can’t occur without warning. So, it’s again tremendously important to take precautionary measures should the unexpected happen.

Keep Everyone Warm

Everyone likes to be warm, pets included!

As the months get colder and the days get shorter, be sure to have a strong supply of winter essentials like blankets, water-proof candles, coats, and sweaters. Be sure to add them to your home and car prep kits to help you conserve heat during the harsh winter months.  

Stay Safe on the Road

Do you have an emergency preparation kit for your car? We sure hope so! For the many unexpected things that can happen while on the road, it's critical to have an up-to-date emergency prep kit at all times. 

The 4 Person Premium Disaster Preparedness Survival Kit from First My Family is a perfect option for families looking to stay safe on the road. Should an emergency situation arise while out-and-about, this survival kit comes fully-equipped with 72 hours of survival and first aid supplies.

Running out of gas? Stuck in the snow? Plan ahead and stay prepared. 

Great supplies may not be enough to stay fully prepared. Keep a list of emergency contact numbers in your vehicle should you need to call a tow truck, friend, or other emergency contacts.  

Check Holiday Lighting

One of the things that can be easily overlooked is safety when it comes to our beloved holiday decorations. Make sure each connection is secure and kept at a safe distance away from small children and pets. 

Additionally, keep an eye on the number of plugs you have from each outlet; overloading your outlets has the potential to cause a major fire emergency. 

Lastly, if you are burning candles, keep them away from flammable objects like trees, decorations and gifts. Be sure to also use items like hot-pad holders and never leave your home without out putting your candles out completely. 

Play Safe: Holiday Toy Safety

It is important to be safe when playing with toys this holiday season since there are many small, detachable parts that can be swallowed. Make sure to keep all toys away from small children and infants and/or monitor children when the toys are in use. 

Also, we all know opening packages during the holidays can be a difficult task. Toys are often packaged tightly, prompting us to use sharp objects to open them. Take extra precaution when attempting to open all packages. Keep sharp objects away from children and do not allow them to open toys without adult supervision. 

Be Prepared in Any Moment

Emergencies can occur at any time and in any moment, including the holiday season. Gather your family for a few moments to address your evacuation and safety plan for your home. Take the time now to prepare your family, and remember: there's no such thing and being too prepared! 

Wishing you and your family a safe and happy holday season!

Winter Is Here: Family Winter Preparedness



Winter is finally here! Whether you’re on the east or west coast, the winter season is upon us and that means we need to take extra precaution when it comes to keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe. This season is characteristic of increased hazards on the roads and in daily life, so it is important we all have safety plans and procedures in place should a potential dangerous situation arise.

There are many preparation tips that you and your family can put into place this winter season. Here are a few:

  1. Place winter supplies, like shovels and rock salt, inside your home should you get snowed in.
  2. Store sufficient heating fuel in the case that your regular fuel sources are shut off.
  3. Learn how to properly shut off and close water valves should a pipe burst in your home. Insulate your pipes with newspaper and plastic or insulation and allow your faucets to lightly drip to prevent from burst pipes.
  4. Service your vehicle to prepare it for the winter weather.
  5. If you are using a portable generator, follow the instruction manual to ensure the carbon monoxide fumes produced by the generator are escaping properly and not entering your breathing air.
  6. A winter emergency kit which includes first aid resources should be placed in every vehicle you operate and in your home.

Also remember to: 

Update Preparation Kits

With the winter season quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to update your home and car safety preparation kits for the new weather. Be sure to add extra blankets, extra warm clothing, and heat sources like waterproof matches to your kits to ensure you will have everything you need to stay safe.

Customize Preparation Kits

Find a time to meet with your family and ask your loved one what items they feel should be added to both the home and car safety preparation kits. As you brainstorm together with one another, make it a point to find these items and add them to the kits as soon as possible. Safety never sleeps, so it is vital to take action as quickly as possible to protect your safety and the safety of your loved ones. Having your family take an active role in the preparation process will encourage safety among all family members and promote togetherness.

The First My Family 4 Person Premium Disaster Preparedness Survival Kit with 72-Hours of Survival and First Aid Supplies has all the items you need to keep you and your family safe this winter. This is a great survival kit to begin with as it is prepared by professionals who know all about what is needed to stay safe in emergency situations. You and your family can then customize this kit further by adding additional items you collectively feel will be best for you such as additional blankets and warmers. 

Take Care of Furry Family Members

Don’t forget about your fur family! If you have pets, remember they are part of your family too. Make sure you have survival items for them as well in the preparation kits you are creating with your family. It is important to customize and update a pet survival kit so your pets can survive this winter season alongside the family.

Bring your pets in from the cold as often as possible and be sure they have fresh drinking water at all times. Additionally, make sure you have a large stock of food for your pets and blankets; your pets get hungry and cold, just like us! 

This winter, be sure you and your family are prepared for any potential emergency weather situations that may arise. Keep a customized preparation and survival emergency kit in your home and car at all times and learn what safety tips will help keep you, your loved ones, and your fur family safe.

 

Take extra precaution and ensure the safety of your family with these winter preparation tips!

Thanksgiving 2016: Family Communication Equals Family Safety

Thanksgiving 2016 is finally here! Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for friends, family, and loved ones to spend quality moments together and make new memories to last a lifetime. 

Unfortunately, natural disasters and emergency situations don’t take days off. Although Thanksgiving is for enjoying one another and spreading the love and cheer that encapsulates the holiday season, it is important that everyone takes advantage of the togetherness and uses this time to discuss important family safety topics.

Here are three major topics you should find time to discuss with your family this Thanksgiving.

 

Family Communication Plan

Do you have a family communication plan established should a natural disaster or emergency situation occur? Who will contact whom? Do you have everyone’s contact information and is the contact information you have updated, correct, and accurate? 

Your family communication plan should include what to do and where to go should an emergency occur. Determine a collective meeting place in case of an emergency, and ensure everyone is on the same page as far as next steps.

 

Family Contact Information 

Do you have the current contact information of family, friends, and loved ones? Do you have updated addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and so on?

It’s important to regularly update this information since such items tend to change frequently. Take a few moments now that the family is together to share everyone’s contact information so everyone has the most current information possible.

 

Emergency Preparation Kits

Do you have an emergency preparation kit to utilize in a potential emergency situation? Preparedness kits are of course one of the most important items for survival during an emergency situation because they have everything you need in one place and ready to go.

Don’t have a prep kit? Take a look at the First My Family 4 Person Survival Kit - Disaster Preparedness Kit today.

You and your family will benefit endlessly from having a comprehensive preparedness kit in your homes and cars throughout the holiday season and over the course of the entire year. You never know when disasters may occur or when a potential emergency situation might arise, so you’ll need to be prepared in all instances.

This Thanksgiving and holiday season, let safety be one of the things you are most thankful for. Ensure that you and your loved ones have all the resources they needed in the case of an emergency.

 

Wishing you a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Survival Lessons from The Walking Dead's Glenn Rhee

On the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead, we watched as one of our favorite and most beloved characters, Glenn Rhee, left the series. Known as a fighter, survivor, and ultimate caretaker, watching out for all his fellow partners (especially Maggie), Glenn was truly a symbol of hope and strength during the utmost of apocalyptic times.

During his time on the series, Glenn taught us many important invaluable lessons, many of which can be applied to potential disaster situations.Thanks to Glenn, we know what it means to be strong, to lead, to be clever, to never give up, and to always stay positive.

Let’s take a look at some of the best lessons Glenn taught us over the years:

 

Know your strengths

When we first met Glenn, we knew him as a professional pizza delivery boy, but he soon showed us that he was more than just that.

With his smart and savvy skills, Glenn was always able to find his strength in every situation and utilize his gifts for the greater good to bring about positive outcomes for the entire group.

If you are in an emergency situation, hold on to your strengths (and your TWDZPAK!). Take a few moments now to examine and analyze your strengths in potential scenarios and think of what you can do to empower your strengths even further.

 

Be Prepared to Lead

Glenn was a natural born leader. No matter what situation he found himself in, even when working together with Rick who was seen as the highest leader of the group, Glenn knew that he was capable of leading, so he took control when the circumstance called for him. Even Rick knew how strong Glenn was as a leader and he often worked together with him for advice and for the best outcomes.

Remember that given the right circumstance, you too can be a leader. Inside every survivor is the power to lead anyone in any occurrence; if you are finding yourself in an emergency, know that you have the ability to lead not only yourself, but others, out into the positive direction that is needed.

 

Be Clever

Glenn was a master of being clever. When the situation was dire, he knew just the right way to get out of it. Whether that meant collaborating with some sketchy partners or finding unique ways to attack, Glenn knew what it meant to be resourceful and how thinking outside of the box often led to positive outcomes.

Always keep your mind open to unconventional thinking. Especially when emergency situations call, you might not always have the resources available that you need, but you might be able to improvise with other tools and/or materials that you do have.

Allow your mind to remain open to new ways of thinking and always be ready to learn, no matter what the situation may call for.

 

Never Give Up

Throughout the series, Glenn was the epitome of perseverance and one of the best times his never-give-up-mentality shined through was with his relationship with Maggie. In Season 4, Glenn’s mission (in addition to surviving), was to get back to Maggie at all costs.

And his strength paid off.

Having the mindset of never giving up during a tough situation can be a deciding factor when it comes to survival. No matter what life throws at you, stay prepared, don’t quit, and never ever give up!

  

Stay Positive

Through all the pain and suffering, Glenn not only never gave up, but he always remained positive. In the face of adversity, Glenn held on to the positive and knew that there was always going to be a light at the end of the tunnel.

In your daily life and in any emergency situation, have the same mentality as Glenn. Stay positive!

Yes, sometimes it is much easier to say than to do, but remaining positive can really breathe good light into a bad situation. Remaining positive can also help keep others calm which can help manage stressful survival situations.

 

Thank you Glenn for all you have taught us. We will learn from you and we will carry on your legacy as emergency preppers and survivalists!

Stay Prepared While Traveling

The summer months are a perfect time to travel - the kids are out of school, the weather is great, and it’s a great way to spend some quality time with your family.  We know you’re prepared at home for a disaster or emergency, but are you prepared while traveling? Whether you’re flying, road tripping, or going somewhere close to home, it’s important to always stay prepared for the unexpected, check out some tips below.


Always Carry a First Aid Kit
Wherever you’re traveling, be sure to carry a small first aid kit with you with items like band aids, over-the-counter remedies, and any other common items you feel you might need. Sure you may get the help you need if a problem arises, but take as much action as you can by being prepared. Afterall, at the very least it can help you feel much more comfortable and at-ease when traveling. Did you know our TWDZPAK includes several emergency and first aid supplies and doubles as a water bottle? Check it out here.


Keep Emergency Cash and Back Up Cards

When you’re traveling it’s important to have back up cash and credit cards in case your belongings get lost or stolen. Remember the unexpected happens at the worst times, prepare yourself from as many situations as you can. Stay prepared and make sure you have the means to get your family home.  


Have Travel Insurance

A great preparedness step you can take is to get yourself and your family travel insurance.  Travel insurance will cover you in case you or a family member gets injured, your belongings get stolen, in many cases of emergencies, if you have to head home early, or if there are any unforeseen cancellations in your itinerary.  If you can, try to get a high coverage limit on your policy that also covers emergency evacuations or care if you happen to be hiking in the woods.    


Mosquito Protection and ZIKA Awareness   
Mosquitos are everywhere in the Summer, but areas near water are their favorite place to hang out.  If you’re traveling to an area you believe might have some sort of mosquito population, it’s important to wear bug spray repellent and to wear long pants and shirts in order to protect your skin from bites.  Usually, you’ll just get an uncomfortable lump that can itch, but will go away in a few days.  Right now however, there is an outbreak of Zika Virus that you have to be very careful about if you’re traveling anywhere in the Caribbean, Central and South America, and The Pacific Islands.  There also have been cases in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami, Florida. It is often advised that pregnant women should NOT travel to those places - the most common effect of the Zika Virus is severe birth defects of unborn children. If you are traveling to these places use powerful bug spray, and again, wear long pants and shirts, sleep with the air conditioning on and make sure there are screens on every window.  Zika is extremely dangerous and should be avoided as much as possible.


Have fun and stay safe for the remaining of the summer!

Survival Lessons from Season 6 of The Walking Dead

 

Season 6 of the Walking Dead was a rollercoaster of emotions for all zombie-loving fans from across the nation. During these long months we witnessed some of our favorite characters face and overcome unimaginable survival odds leaving us to ask: “What would we do in this situation?”

It’s likely that you’ve uttered the same sentence with a friend, family member or loved one while watching the show, after all, the show’s characters are ordinary citizens of the world prior to the zombie outbreak.

As emergency and disaster preparedness pro’s and TWD fanatics, we took some survival notes on Season 6 of The Walking Dead to help you strengthen your skills in emergency prep, and increase your odds of survival. Take a look and stay safe:


Learn Key Skills


Learning skills in carpentry, masonry, gardening, and farming can prove to be extremely useful when building a survival shelter and living in remote areas for extended periods.

Learning CPR & First Aid can mean the difference between life and death; these skills can be used to help yourself and others during and after a disaster.

Learning to make your own ammunition may be put on the back-burner for some, but you may want to consider learning the skill now. After all, ammunition during a survival situation is key for protection.

 

Food & Water


Drinkable water is often hard to find and can be quite heavy to carry. Consider investing in a Lifestraw water filter so you’re able to filter filthy water into clean, safe drinking water (Lifestraw water filters take out more that 99% of bacteria).

Stockpile high-calorie, long-lasting foods and seeds for planting, we can think of more than a few moments during Season 6 where they were concerned about the food they stockpiled.


Customize Your Prep Kits


Every Emergency Prep kit should be customized to accommodate every member of your household. Special medications and supplies should be included in your kits (don’t forget: all of our FMF kits have enough room for extra survival supplies). Make sure to always include more than enough emergency medication that you know is critical to you and your entire family.


Emergency situations and natural disasters happen without warning, prepare accordingly to increase survival for you and your loved ones. From our family to yours, stay safe!
