At Essential Packs we specialize in emergency preparedness which translates into "Helping People and Organizations Get Prepared for an Emergency". Essential Packs provides support for the three critical components of emergency preparedness which include: Getting Emergency Supplies, Making an Emergency Plan, and Being Informed.
First and foremost, we specialize in designing emergency preparedness kits (sometimes referred to as survival kits and disaster kits). We currently offer more than 150 different designs and have kits to support the needs of individuals and families, businesses, schools, first responders, religious organizations, city service organizations like police and fire departments, government agencies, and all four branches of our military. We also excel at building custom kits for customers that need to conform to exact specifications that can include custom printing and branding.
In addition to emergency kits, we also provide emergency preparedness information and planning guides.
The Essential Packs Website provides comprehensive information about our emergency preparedness products and allows you to purchase them online at the lowest available prices. We also have experts available via our toll-free number to answer additional questions you may have or to offer up a recommendations.
At work, the safety of employees is the responsibility of the employer. Essential Packs makes it easy for a company to prepare for a variety of different emergencies and disasters. We offer emergency kits designed for 5, 10, 20, or more employees. We also have kits for safety captains (sometimes called safety wardens). We can even design custom kits to meet special needs. Our Office Emergency Kits have a shelf-life of 5 years and contain food and water rations approved by the United States Coast Guard and the Canadian Transport Authority. In addition to preparing employees at work, we can even set up a program that will allow your employees to purchase an emergency preparedness kit for their home at a discounted price.
Making sure students and faculty are safe during school hours is critical and while schools plan for emergencies by performing fire drills, earthquake drills, and lockdown drills, they also need to make sure they carry the proper emergency preparedness supplies. Essential Packs can provide a school with emergency food and water rations that have a 5 year shelf-life. In addition, we carry Emergency Lockdown Kits, sanitation supplies and a variety of first-aid kits, communication devices, and emergency lighting equipment. In addition to providing emergency supplies for use at school, we also have several fundraising programs developed to not only generate funds for your school, but also to help parents prepare their homes for an eventual emergency.
Essential Packs provides a variety of survival kits and supplies to help equip our emergency response teams should disaster strike. We have Trauma Kits designed to treat from 25 to 1,000 people. We also carry Triage Kits and Supplies, including triage tarps, triage tags, caution tape, and much more. We also carry a variety of kits designed specifically for cars. Last but not least, we carry C.E.R.T. Kits. If by chance, we don’t have the exact kit you’re looking for, we will build it specifically for you. We can even print custom information on the kits themselves.
Religious organizations, The Boy Scout and Girl Scouts of America, and other non-profit organizations play a vital role in preparing its members for an emergency. Essential Packs can help your members get prepared by providing them with discounted emergency preparedness supplies and information. We can even incorporate a fundraising program that not only generates important funds for your organization, but also helps your members prepared for a disaster. Of interest to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America, we carry a complete line of Wenger Swiss Army Knives. A Swiss Army Knife is an essential tool for every adventurer and a key ingredient of any emergency preparedness kit.
Based on guidelines published by FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security, every home and car should contain an emergency kit. FEMA recommends that every home have enough supplied to support every member of the household for at least three days. Our primary kits at Essential Packs are designed around this recommendation. Essential Packs has 5 Primary types of kits to support your emergency preparedness needs. We carry both Backpack and Bucket Kits, in both an Economy and Deluxe Format. These kits are built to support up to 4 family members. In addition, we have a Fanny Pack Kit that’s designed for one person and prefect for the car. All of our primary kits have a shelf-life of 5 years, and our deluxe kits exceed the guidelines developed by FEMA.
Catastrophic emergency situations and disasters can occur without warning which is why Essential Packs carries Long Term Storage Emergency Food developed by Wise Foods. These dehydrated and freeze-dried meals have a 25 year shelf life and come in 1, 3, 6, and 12 month supplies. With a 25 year shelf life, there is no need to rotate food.

In addition to preparing employees at work, we can even set up a program that will allow your employees to purchase an emergency preparedness kit for their home at a discounted price.
