We are impressed that Emergency Essentials is an emergency preparedness consultant with the Department of Homeland Security. We also like the Low Price Guarantee, which states that they will price match on any item within 30 days of purchase. In addition, there is a 30 day unconditional satisfaction guarantee on all items.
- Connections to local emergency groups
The only drawback to this company is for someone who is looking for a connection to local emergency related groups; there is no information in that area on the site.
Emergency Essentials offers good education resources on their website. There are a number of downloadable lists and plans, plus recipes and extensive information on how to prepare your emergency supplies.
The educational section is focused on planning for emergency supplies, but they also have a great deal of other information for surviving and recovering from a disaster. The Blog and Insight Articles contain a wealth of useful information on these topics.
Emergency Essentials is a business which specializes in emergency preparedness supplies. The online store carries pretty much every imaginable item that you could want to prepare for an emergency. There is an extensive line of food storage, water storage supplies, emergency gear, cooking supplies, and outdoor supplies. The prices compare equitably to other major preparedness chains.
Connecting with the Community
Emergency Essentials does not offer any connection to local resources. There is an online forum and social media groups where users can join in conversation.
