Less than three months ago, Hurricane Irma ravaged Florida with a fury that many state residents had never seen before. Hundreds of thousands of people evacuated, while the ones who stayed home battened down the hatches. More than 60 percent of homes in Florida lost power, thanks to Irma’s high winds, storm surges and torrential rains. Store shelves emptied and gas stations ran low on fuel prior to the hurricane’s landfall. Even after Irma was downgraded to a tropical storm and eventually left the state, it was days and weeks before many people were able to return home and start to repair damages to their homes and vehicles.
At 4Patriots, we talk a lot about preparedness. It’s what we do. We know that just about everyone, at one point or another, is going to experience some kind of crisis. It may be connected to a major weather event such as Hurricane Irma. Or it could be a failing of the electrical grid. Or it might be a personal issue such as a job loss.
We frequently stress that being prepared with a supply of survival food will be a huge help once a crisis arises. But we also emphasize that preparation can be a significant advantage now – before a disaster strikes – because it provides peace of mind.
When you’ve prepared, you know that no matter what happens, you’re ready for it. We call it food insurance. Our nutritious, great-tasting food is there for you, regardless of whether you ever need it or not.
Florida Resident is Glad She Prepared
Well, it’s one thing for us to say that people need to be prepared. After all, that’s what our products are all about. But it’s different when our customers say it. That’s when we truly know that what we do matters. That’s when we fully understand that we are helping people survive and thrive in life-threatening circumstances.
One of those people is Gail G. from Florida. She went through Hurricane Irma, so she knows how terrifying it was. But she also knew that no matter how bad it got, she’d be able to feed herself because she had previously purchased our survival food.
“I was born in Denver, Colorado,” Gail said. “My dad was in the military, and I had a chance to travel all over the world. I grew up outside… camping, backpacking. So I’m very aware of all the food that’s out there for backpacking.
“I started thinking about my hurricane box. But I found out that some of the stuff you get goes bad pretty quickly. And then I saw the ad for Food4Patriots. And I thought, ‘Hmmm, that might be good. Twenty-five years’ shelf life? That would last me a while.’ And I decided to stockpile a little bit of food.”
‘I knew I wouldn’t have to worry about anything’
As it turned out, Gail was glad she had done exactly that. Irma was just as devastating as advertised.
“If you’re out of food (during a hurricane), you can’t run down to the 7-Eleven because there is no 7-Eleven,” she said. “You’re going to have to eat somehow.
“That’s the biggest storm I’ve ever been through. (But) I knew I wouldn’t have to worry about anything. I had food and water, and I had power from my generator.
“So, I throw a 72-hour pack of food in my go-bag. I throw another one in the van. I know I can sleep in my van. It’s not real comfortable, but I can sleep in my van. So, if I know something’s coming, I’m prepared.”
