We put together emergency packages for people, basically enough stuff to get you through the first 24 hours of an emergency. We learnt the hard way (Canberra, 2003)...we were always going to get around to it but we didn't. We made ourselves a pack with water, food, lighting, a dynamo radio and torch, first aid kit etc... Wouldn't be without it, and if you have been just thinking about it, heres a chance to do something!!!!
While we were doing our research we found another product, an Emergency ration in the US. We imported some and it is brilliant...it tastes OK, has a 5 year shelf life, is really compact and light..ideal for our camper if we get into strife. We thought other people might be interested. Its called Mainstay, it wasn't available in Australia so we got some. Anyway, anyone who might be interested, we can get it here for about $16.95 per 2400 calorie unit, we'd need to make a couple of dollars on top to meet our costs, plus postage. We have a new website evacpac.com.au, so if you like, contact us.
