A recent winter storm in Southern California knocked out power to more than 90,000 customers. Officials at Food4Patriots recommend that homeowners stock up on emergency food to be better prepared for outages that might result in food spoiling.
Feb 03, 2016 /prREACH/ -- Proving that even Southern California is not immune to winter storms, approximately 91,000 customers lost power Jan. 31 due to a storm featuring high winds and rain. Food4Patriots customers knew they would have nutritious food ready and waiting, even if the blackout lasted long enough to spoil food.
The makers of Food4Patriots strongly urge people across the country to be prepared for winter storms and other emergencies with stockpiles of healthy, good-tasting, non-perishable food.
“Winter storms that receive most of the attention occur in the North, Midwest and Northeast, but the recent Southern California storm producing power outages goes to show that it can happen anywhere and anytime,” said 4Patriots LLC Partner Allen Baler, whose Nashville, Tenn.-based company provides products designed to help people become more independent and self-reliant, including Food4Patriots.
“Of course, it’s not only storms that can negatively affect the vulnerable power grid. The grid faces daily cyber attacks, as well as the occasional physical attack, and accidents also cause blackouts that can last long enough to disrupt lives. The key is to be prepared with plenty of emergency food with a long shelf life.”
Food4Patriots features a wide variety of delicious, nutritious and easy-to-prepare food with a 25-year shelf life. It is sold in 72-hour, one-week, four-week, three-month and one-year kits.
The food in Food4Patriots emergency kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and requires nothing more than boiling water. It is kept in easy-to-store, space-age Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light, and which are tucked inside tough, stackable totes that are discreet and store anywhere – basement, attic, garage, shed, cabin or even an RV.
“Some people who purchase Food4Patriots emergency food kits have chosen to taste it immediately – many of whom ordered more right away – while others decided to place their food in long-term storage,” Baler said. “Either way, they have food for themselves and their families should contaminations or other food emergencies occur.”
