Earthquakes: Are You Prepared?

"My three top things that people should have water, food and lighting," said Jeff Edelstein, owner of SOS Survival Products, in a recent interview with ABC News regarding earthquake preparedness. See full report here.

In its report, ABC noted that many people often talk about the Northridge earthquake of 1994, which was a 6.7-magnitude earthquake. However, the most recent earthquake in Ridgecrest on July 5, 2019 was a 7.1-magnitude earthquake.

If there was ever a time to think about earthquake preparedness, it is now! Here at Maglite, we take emergency preparedness very seriously because we know and have heard many stories of lives being saved because they were prepared or someone around them was prepared - many stories with a Maglite at the center. 

Consider getting our Complete Home Bundle, which includes our full size ML300L 4D LED Flashlight, which can run more than two weeks nonstop on just 4 D-cell batteries. It also comes with the pocket/purse size Mini Maglite Pro LED flashlight and the Solitaire LED key chain flashlight. Get it here

Aside from earthquakes, blackouts seem to be happening more frequently also. Don't drain your phone battery using it as a flashlight, as it can be your only line of communication. Get your Maglite and have plenty of them around! Stay safe and always be ready!
