Hurricane season is in full swing. From June 1st until November 30th, hurricanes are most likely to form in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and Gulf of Mexico. Peak activity is fast approaching in August and September, and Totik believes that everyone should have a plan for their households and family members. Whether you live in an area that has a history of hurricanes or not, it is important to know what to do in the event of a hurricane. According to NOAA.gov, the five main tips to instill before the hurricane season are
- Develop an action plan
- Assemble disaster supplies
- Gather insurance information and document your possessions
- Create a communication plan
- Strengthen your home
The majority of Americans are not well prepared for natural disasters. Even for those with plans, an overwhelming majority admitted in a survey from Wells Fargo that 71% do not have a detailed emergency plan in the event of a natural disaster, with less than half having an emergency to-go kit that includes supplies for their household ready.
Totik aims to help prepare and aid in the safety of those in hard times. The E-Pack by Totik includes a 200-piece emergency supply kit in a small backpack that is easy to store and keep with you in case of any situation. Additionally, the e-pack comes with a 3.5 square Genesis original LOOLA solar lantern that is water-resistant, foldable, and rechargeable in the sun or by an indoor light bulb, providing your household with light even when the power goes out.
Totik knows the devastation hurricanes can cause and continuously aims to help those struck by disasters. When Hurricane Ian hit Florida in 2022 and the earthquake in Haiti in 2021, Totik offered 1,000 Genesis solar lanterns by LOOLA to help those who were affected. Whether you live in an area affected by hurricanes or not, follow these guidelines to help prepare your household for any natural disaster.
