Legacy Supply Co is a company that offers emergency food supplies. Why do they exist? Tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and many other natural disasters can cause widespread panic in the population, which means stores are quickly depleted of their inventory. In times like these, people should be prepared for anything: Legacy Supply Co has you covered. There's no need to worry about whether or not your family will have enough water to drink because we've got it all sorted out with our 72-hour kits . Great examples would be the unexpected Texas ice storm or the damaging hurricane winds in suburban Iowa. The year 2020 brought us a whole new reason to have backups and be prepared. Welcome to the pandemic.
The Legacy Supply Co team is here to help. The common phrase, "Keep calm and carry on" takes on a whole new meaning when you're actually in an emergency situation. Our goal is to be your number one resource for any type of supply need. From emergency food kits to water purification tablets, we've got it all covered. We are the safe haven that will keep you going strong during times of chaos or disaster. We want nothing more than for our customers to feel at ease knowing they can count on us--that's why we have such great customer service!
We heard from many new people anxious to get some shelf stable food, such as our ready-made meals and even fruits and vegetables, in preparation for not knowing what would happen next or how worse things might get. Understandably, it can be overwhelming to anyone trying to prepare for their family’s safety. Not to mention being scared and blindsided by an immediate emergency scenario.
Thinking ahead and planning to have some extras on hand for your most basic essential needs can keep you out of the dangerous situations you are not ready for. You don’t want to be one of those people fighting over the last gallon of milk or in the middle of the riots trying to get food for your family. Uncontrolled violence can happen anywhere as tensions can run very high in times like these while people are scrambling to gather supplies. A wise man once said, “better to have and not need, then need and not have.”
Later in 2020, the term “prepper” suddenly lost the stigma it had before the pandemic. Additionally, the word “pandemic” no longer brought up old school day memories of the black plague from the late 17th century, where we remember the black and white images of hospitals with beds at capacity and people dressed in black with bird masks. It was now a reality and real experiences were taking place before our very eyes.
School closings, warehouses lined with beds, daily news reports of overwhelmed hospitals and new deaths numbers were no longer fiction but becoming history. Physicians pleading for equipment and supplies, people afraid to leave their home and the economy grinded to a halt in many areas with mandatory shutdowns and lockdowns. This pandemic event illustrates just how dependent we all are on all the “cogs” to work correctly together.
We’ve included a short list to aid anyone in achieving a most basic emergency plan, hopefully without the head spin. With a minimal goal of these 10 items, you will be considerably ahead of those who do nothing the next time something shows up unexpectedly.
- Water storage
- Shelf stable food (taking into account special diets)
- Prescription/over counter meds/toiletries
- Protected important documents
- Evacuation plan
This list by no means is comprehensive but is concise enough to give anyone a manageable start to preparing for the next crazy event. Have at least 2 solutions for each line item, keeping in mind your area might become unsafe and necessitate an evacuation.
