Disaster Preparedness is a big part of what we do... from building and supplying custom "Emergency Grab & Go" kits for Universities, to building and shipping 200,000 first aid kits overnight to aid the American Red Cross efforts in Sandy relief.
What so many forget is that the "pre" in "preparedness" means before. Preparedness is being proactive not reactive.
