Emergency Lighting and Preparedness Equipment

Severe Weather

Portable emergency lighting is an essential tool for police, fire and utility workers; however, emergency equipment is also essential for everyone. An emergency by definition is a serious, unexpected, and often dangerous situation requiring immediate action. The ability to manage an emergency involves planning and preparation.

Portable Lighting

Portable lighting, which includes flashlights, lanterns, LED electronic flares, and LED batons are invaluable during power outages or when an accident occurs. Lighting is necessary to identify potential hazards, help with search and rescue and provide a sense of comfort. LED lighting is available in all forms of portable devices and ranges from blinding bright light to low level light. There are times when excessive bright light can actually be a hindrance. For situations where high contrast illumination is desired that is not overwhelmingly bright consider the NightStar Green LED No Battery flashlight.

For most people power outages last but a few hours but increasingly as severe weather, flooding, fires, earthquakes and tsunamis strike with devastating effect power outages and other emergency situations are measured in weeks or longer in extreme cases.

Advanced Warning

The longer lead time a person has for monitoring an advisory, warning or watch issued by the weather service the more proactive a person can be with taking shelter or evacuating an area. Communication tools such as a radio that includes a crank radio or NOAA weather radio equipped with automatic alarm, and a means of charging a cell phone or other low voltage device via a remote charging station such as a solar charger are all tools that should be considered if not included in an emergency kit at home, work or the vehicle.
