  • Hurricane Preparedness?

    You can't stop a tropical storm or hurricane, but you can take steps now to protect you,  your family, your business, and your community. Atlantic Hurricane Season is not over, and as we head into National Preparednes Month in September think about this year's theme “Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.”and how it applies to you and your readines... Hurricanes are not just a coastal concern, they can, of course batter the coasts with winds, rain, and storm surges, but they can also strike interior states, and can cause severe inland flooding.

    If you live in coastal areas at risk, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages you to begin preparing yourself for hurricane season. The Atlantic hurricane season is June 1 through November 30 each year.

    Hurricane & Tsunami: Hurricanes, Tropical Storms, Cyclones, Storm Surge and Tsunami… Whew! First let us point out that Hurricanes are not just a coastal concern. Hurricanes cause serious harm inland as well. Don’t think that you won’t be impacted by hurricanes just because you are many miles from the coastline. You are not necessarily immune to the ravages of Hurricanes and Tropical Storms. Tropical cyclones often produce widespread, torrential rains in excess of 6 inches, which may result in deadly and destructive floods. In fact, flooding is the major threat from tropical cyclones for people living inland. Flash flooding, defined as a rapid rise in water levels, can occur quickly due to intense rainfall. Longer term flooding on rivers and streams can persist for several days after the storm, and a Storm Surge (water from the ocean that is pushed toward the shore by the force of the winds swirling around the hurricane. This advancing surge combines with the normal tides and can increase the water level by 30 feet or more) can back up rivers and estuaries that normally flow freely to sea – creating overrun riverbanks upstream. Preparedness for these onslaughts includes raingear and ponchos, standard preparedness supplies and evacuation plans – plus all the flood considerations and extra attention to communication devices as landlines and mobile phones will almost certainly be out after major winds.

    Are you READY? Are you READY?

    Please follow these important hurricane preparedness tips from CDC:

    After you have read these tips, please review the other resources available on the CDC Hurricanes website.

  • 1,000 US women positive for Zika

    While over 1,000 pregnant women have been diagnosed and having Zika virus in the US and US territories, this is still considered to be extremely rare - there's a lot of worry and hype, but as of yet, it is not a gret concern - although the CDC is recommending that all pregnant women get tested and follow precautions to avoid contracting the virus. Zika shows few, if any symptoms so medical diagnosis is the only way to assure a pregnant women does not have Zika. While there is no "cure" and treatments are symptimatic and paliative, early diagnosis is important as Zika can lead to parlysis and birth defects. Zika and Pregnancy

    When present, symptoms are mild and last less than a week. They include fever, rash, joint pain, and red eyes.

  • Too late to be prepared?

    Never!

    We'll be sharing all sorts of preparedness tips and suggestions heading into, and throughout September for National Preparedness Month - but here's something to start with:

    While it is somewhat ironic (as well as oxymoronic) that Ready.gov released the 2016 National Preparedness Month logo a few days ago - even though they had an announcement up long-stating it would be up the first week in August... we love the new logo anyway. We'll just assume that Ready.gov wasn't quite prepared.

  • Do You Know the Signs of a Heat Stroke?

    We've shared articles on What is Heat Stroke?, as well as Heat Stroke First Aid Treatment in the past, but now, as we see countless heat related injuries occuring aorund the nation, it is time for anu update.

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heat stroke occurs when the body is unable to regulate its temperature. The body's temperature rises rapidly, sweating mechanism fails, and the body is unable to cool down.

    Do you know the signs of heat stroke? While warning signs may vary, symptoms may include:

    • An extremely high body temperature (above 103 degrees Fahrenheit);
    • Red, hot, and dry skin (no sweating);
    • Rapid, strong pulse; and
    • Dizziness

    According to the CDC, if someone experiences signs of a heat stroke, have someone else call for immediate medical assistance while you begin cooling the person by:

    • Getting him or her to a shady area; and/or
    • Immersing the person in a tub of cool water, placing him or her in a cool shower, or spraying the person with cool water from a garden hose.

    Be sure to monitor the person’s body temperature, and continue cooling efforts until the body temperature drops to 101-102 degrees Fahrenheit. If emergency medical personnel are delayed, call the hospital emergency room for further instructions. Don’t give the victim fluids to drink.

    If emergency treatment isn’t provided, heat stroke can cause death or permanent disability. To learn more about this and other heat-related illnesses, read What is Heat Exhaustion?Treating Heat Exhaustion & Extreme Heat ??

  • Off the Grid

    With National Preparedness Month around the corner, people are stocking up on preparedness items and giveaways like Ponchos and Emergency Blankets - if you really want to go off grid, check this out!

    Living off the grid is a romantic idea when you've had enough of traffic, stressful jobs and rising housing costs. But solitude can take some time and effort before you find your peaceful place. Just ask Catherine King and Wayne Adams, two artists who, for the last 24 years, invested their energy and creativity into building their own paradise: an island. The floating island is made up of 12 tethered sections of buildings, including greenhouses, living spaces, a kitchen, workshops and more to house all their artistic needs outside the confines of typical real estate. Adams says "Freedom Cove" was constructed with a saw and a hammer, and no power tools, floating freely in the ocean with few ties to the shore and no anchor. In the video, when asked if they ever get seasick, Adams replied "No, when I go to town I get landsick."

  • OVERSTOCK SALE - 65% Off & Free Shipping!

    Go Big or Go Home!
    It is time to step up to a REAL First Aid Cabinet... Go USA!

    We have an overstock of First Aid Cabinets and need to make some room in our warehouse. We are offering our loyal customers 60-65% OFF, plus Free Shipping on Urgent First Aid™ Stations.

    These are our best selling OSHA & ANSI compliant first aid cabinets assembled in the USA…and don’t worry when it comes time to refill your cabinet because First-Aid-Product.com keeps all brands of refills very affordable.

    Order now as supplies are limited. No Coupon required – But sale ends soon!

    These Urgent First Aid™ first aid cabinets are assembled right here in the USA of domestic and imported content.

    • The Cabinet itself
      When you receive your Urgent First Aid™ first aid cabinets, you will notice the cabinet is a bit heavier, and certainly sturdier than an average first aid cabinet – Why is that? Most first aid cabinets sold today are imported from overseas (usually China) and are built to meet the absolute minimum criteria allowed by current regulations. This means over time they will get dented and dinged, the hinges will sag, and the paint or powder coating will chip, flake, or peel – often leading to a rusty cabinet.  Urgent First Aid™ first aid cabinets are custom built in California by an expert metal fabricator that has been perfecting the process since 1946. These cabinets feature interlocking, welded 20 gauge primary steel to assure rugged durability and versatility. All Urgent First Aid™ first aid cabinets feature 90 degree continuous hinges (which make convenient working shelves in the drop-front models) plus key holes for easy wall mounting, and our double draw-bolt latches. Then, knowing the abuse these cabinets can take, the Urgent First Aid™ first aid cabinets are triple powder coated in white which exceeds ASTM standards for salt spray and humidity to help ward off rust, as well as to resist dings and scratches.
    • The content inside the Urgent First Aid™ cabinets
      What’s in the box? More than you think.  Every Urgent First Aid™ Cabinet is guaranteed to meet, and almost always exceed OSHA and ANSI regulations for the recommended purpose or setting of that cabinet. While you want to meet regulations, Urgent First Aid™ likes to add the little “extras” that make Urgent First Aid™ products special. Quality and reliability in the first aid content is very important to Urgent First Aid™, as it is to us here at First-Aid-Product.com – and as it should be to you… nobody wants to hear that an emergency care product failed when someone needed treatment.
