ASAP Survival Gear Adds Natural Disaster Modules

ASAP Survival Gear Adds Natural Disaster ModulesWilliston, VT- The 2010 hurricane season is underway and weather experts are predicting a very active season of tropical storms and hurricanes this year. The ingredients for a hurricane, according to the National Hurricane Center, include pre-existing weather disturbances, warm tropical oceans, moisture, and relatively light winds. If these conditions persist long enough, they can combine to produce the violent winds, enormous waves, torrential rains, and massive floods.

ASAP™ Survival Gear takes hurricane and emergency preparedness to a new level with its line of emergency starter packs and two Natural Disaster Modules: the Evac to Shelter Module and the Shelter Unavailable Module. Designed as add-ons to any of the ASAP Starter packs these two modules will enhance your ability to manage an emergency situation caused by a major natural disaster such as a hurricane, wildfire, or earthquake.

ASAP™ Survival Gear has enlisted the expertise of Dr. Bob Arnot as Chief Education Officer to their products and program. Dr. Arnot is one of the most recognized names in medical and health professions, having served as the former chief medical editor for NBC News. In the last two decades, he has been on site of the world’s worst disasters, helping as a physician, humanitarian and foreign news correspondent. According to Dr. Bob, when a major natural disaster hits, the reality is that most people will evacuate to a shelter until conditions settle. The ASAP Natural Disaster Module I provides items to help make your stay in an evacuation shelter more comfortable.

However, sometimes major natural disasters strike without warning and prevent you and your family from evacuating to a shelter. When you are forced to ride out a storm in your home or office, you must assume that basic needs like water, gas, and electricity will not function. The ASAP Natural Disaster Module II, when combined with any ASAP Starter pack, gives you the essential tools to treat water, cook and provides other basic elements for survival.

ASAP™ Survival Gear currently offers 13 different need or situation specific modules. Each ASAP module contains pre-packed essential items stored in a grab-and-go stuff sack or waterproof case that are easily added to any of the ASAP™ starter packs as seen on www.asapsurvivalgear.com.
