You often hear us talk about survival food and its importance in emergency situations. In this article, we want to review in what specific instances you can use our emergency food rations and energy bars. See how versatile the SOS and Mainstay line of survival food and water really is!
Disasters. We prepare for them as best we can, from earthquakes and fires to hurricanes and storms—it’s hard to know when they will strike. In these events, having non-perishable food and water in your emergency kit is crucial. Make sure your family has enough water with this rule that’s easy to remember: 1 gallon per person per day. Ensure around 1,200 to 2,000 calories per person per day for food consumption. If you’re stormed in and there’s no power, for example, feel assured that you don’t have to rely on the perishable food in your refrigerator when you have SOS Food Lab rations on hand.
However, emergencies surprise us outside of our home environments, too. If you’re on the road traveling and find your car stalled in a remote area, you’ll also need to be equipped with enough food and water until you get help or reach safety. Your cars and RVs have jumper cables and spare tires for emergencies, so why not add a kit that includes food, water, and first aid supplies?
We mention a lot of land-based situations, however our emergency foods are also perfect for the marine environment—fishing, yachting, sailing. Actually, SOS Food Lab supplies the Coast Guard, the Navy and other military branches with our emergency food!
It’s not always about emergencies! For the outdoorsy types, vacations may include activities like camping and hiking. Tuck a day’s worth of energy in your pocket with our popular New Millennium Energy bars, which contain 400 calories and are packed with nutrients. Our bars are even great for marathon runners! They taste like a shortbread cookie and come in 9 different delicious flavors.
Our emergency foods and water have a 5-year shelf life—they’re easy to store anywhere and transport, and are perfect for any survival situation. No refrigeration is needed. Plus, we only use wholesome, raw ingredients!
Be safe and be prepared for whatever may come your way!
