September is National Preparedness Month, and for South Floridians that means getting hurricane ready.
“Everything you need to survive for three days is in this kit as well as other necessary items,” said Wilson, 44.
Inside the portable kit, also called the 72 Hour Emergency Survival Kit, are items such as ABC gauze which stops bleeding on the spot, 2,400 calorie food bars, water purification tablets, a hand crank flashlight with cell phone charger and radio, water proof matches, a sleeping bag, a rain poncho, a N95 mask and hygiene and sanitary items.
Also inside is a disaster pamphlet, which comes with an evacuation list and detailed instructions on what to do before, during and after a disaster.
“Nobody thinks to prepare for these types of situations in advance and the kit can really save lives… that's why my Foundation distributed kits to families in New Orleans moving into homes rebuilt after Hurricane Katrina,” said Wade.
Mourning said his perspective on being prepared has changed since he was introduced to the kit.
“Being based in South Florida, we see all of the bad storms that come through," said Mourning. “4 Survival To Go changes the way people think about being prepared by educating them first and then providing them with the tools necessary to survive unforeseen emergencies or severe weather.”
