Medix EMS has survival kits to help you prepare for the next big earthquake, including this 2-person 3-day survival pack.

Everyone knows a big earthquake is coming. It’s time to get prepared.

Resolve to stock up on survival supplies before 2020 to keep you and your family safe

You dropped. You covered. You held on. But did you stock up on emergency supplies?

Every year in October, British Colombians participate in the Great ShakeOut. It’s the perfect opportunity to run through your survival plan for the next big earthquake and make sure you’re prepared. Hiding under your desk at work, pulled over in your car, or ducked under the kitchen table at home perhaps you thought to yourself: it would be nice to have some snacks down here.

And then you crawled out and back to your busy life, and maybe you forgot all about it.

Here’s a suggestion: Get it done before 2020. The earthquake’s not going to wait.

Take the stress out of survival

There are plenty of reasons people don’t prepare a survival kit. They think it’s expensive. They don’t know what to pack. They don’t know where to buy it, or they don’t have the time to put it all together.

Lydia West and Lyle Jordan of Medix EMS want to help. Their Vancouver Island business has put together survival kits for individuals and families to take the worry and work out of emergency preparedness. Just grab the bag that’s right for you, and take emergency-preparedness off your mind.

Still not convinced? Here are a few more benefits to buying from Medix:

  • Lighter — So you cobbled together a collection of canned goods, and a twenty-year-old tent. Do you really want to haul that from the office to your home when emergency strikes? Medix takes the time to outfit their kits with state-of-the-art gear that won’t weigh you down. “The food rations are a brick of cookie texture food that lasts three days,” West says.
  • Longer-lasting — Almost everything in a Medix survival kit is shelf-stable and will last until you need it. “The food and water have a five year shelf-life. Most everything else in this kit will last you 10-plus years,” Jordan says.
  • Less-expensive — sourcing and buying all the supplies you’ll need is time-consuming and expensive. Medix buys in bulk and passes the savings on to you.

A kit for every occasion

“Every family dynamic is different, and we can cater to you,” West says.

Have a pet? Medix has survival kits for your furry friends, with food and first-aid supplies that suit their unique needs. On the move a lot? Medix has a miniature kit that packs into a water bottle for on-the-go supplies. Maybe you’d like to keep a kit in your trunk, and another in the garage.
