Emergency Essentials at BePrepared.com is an emergency preparedness retailer specializing in all types of supplies and gear for camping, emergency kits, long-term food and water storage, and daily-use food storage. It is headquartered in Orem, Utah and maintains storefronts in 4 Utah cities: Orem, South Jordan, Murray, and Bountiful. Emergency Essentials is an emergency preparedness consultant with the Department of Homeland Security.
Emergency Essentials provides an inventory of high-quality food supplies that have been dehydrated, freeze-dried, and nutrition-protected while maintaining good flavor as well as non-food products that perform well. The company committed to keeping up on the science of preparedness and claims it will not mislead to make a sale or sell something that won't be useful.
Emergency Essentials' online inventory consists of the following categories and sub-categories:
In addition to customer service representatives, Emergency Essentials employs a preparedness specialist who is on call to answer questions customers have about emergency preparation. It's refreshing to see a company that cares about consumer education and doesn't merely publish sales materials.
There are a number of self-led educational resources that can be filtered according to category, such as recipes, first aid and sanitation, budgeting, etc. Resources also emphasize the benefits of being prepared for any unexpected event (such as illness, accident, or job loss), not just emergency situations involving natural disasters.
The Preparedness Resource Center includes:
Emergency Essentials offers a low price guarantee. If you find a lower price on the same item at a local store or another online retailer, the company will match the lower price within 30 days of purchase! In addition, there is a 30-day unconditional satisfaction guarantee on all items sold.
Perhaps the company's most impressive guarantee, though, is its long shelf-life for food items. Individually sealed pouches and oxygen absorbers ensure a 25-year shelf life.
At any given time, Emergency Essentials is running a number of deals and promotions. If website visitors sign up for an email list that includes survival content and company deals, they receive 15% off their first order. Each day there is a selection of flash sale items that are available in limited quantities for a limited time. Additionally, there are generally discounted items available within the closeout, overstock, and discontinued sales section. Customers can also save money by taking advantage of group specials, purchasing items in bulk for family, friends, and neighbors.
Until 2013 Emergency Essentials offered an online tool that assisted individuals in keeping track of food storage inventory and in accumulating adequate food storage over time. Unfortunately, this popular tool is no longer available.
