3 Emergency Products: Home, Vehicle, and Boat

Whether you need emergency products comes down to how well you understand something called Murphy’s Law. Named after American aerospace engineer Edward A. Murphy Jr., the law states, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” Have you ever noticed that this law tends to occur at times when you’re not prepared to deal with it? (Someone who takes a long road trip without a spare tire is more likely to suffer a flat than those who are prepared.) In many cases, just having the right safety products means you won’t have to use them. If you do run into trouble, it’s better to be prepared.

Even the smallest emergency products can help save your life. That’s because the features and benefits of these items are a huge benefit to anyone who uses them. Like we said above, we’d rather you be prepared and not need these safety products than find yourself in an emergency situation without them. To that end, Solid Signal stocks our online inventory with a variety of emergency products for various situations. This Quick Help blog series identifies and explains some of our most important and sought-after emergency tools.

This week, we have products to help you stay safe at home, in your car, and when you’re on the water:

1. 2000 Lumen LED Rechargeable Flashlight

Stumbling around in the dark is not only scary, it’s dangerous. Whether indoors or out, one missed step could lead to serious injury or worse. That’s why every home needs a flashlight such as this Tech Choice M6 2000 Lumen LED rechargeable flashlight. Don’t put your trust in those so-called “military grade” flashlights you get at the gas station. This Tech Choice flashlight has a true output of 2,000 lumens, which means its LED is twice as bright yet 40% more battery efficient than most T6 XM-L LED flashlights sold elsewhere.

Whether there’s a blackout in your neighborhood or you’re looking for something in the middle of the night, this is the flashlight for you. It’s loaded with many great features for durability and use and best of all, it’s rechargeable. That means no more blowing your money on batteries. In addition to its value in emergency situations, this is also a great flashlight to have around the house. Whether you’re cleaning out a drain, fixing your vehicle, or whatever else, this can definitely shed some light on the situation.

2. Dual USB Charger/Vehicle Emergency Escape Tool

Solid Signal’s in-house brand takes the spotlight again with this Tech Choice 2-Port USB charger vehicle emergency escape tool. This little device inspired this blog post. It might seem like a mile-mannered two-port USB charger for your car. When this device is plugged into the cigarette lighter of your vehicle, you get extra protection when you’re on the road. Its three-in-one design also includes two features you need in the unfortunate event of a crash:

  1. Its tungsten-steel head breaks car glass windows.
  2. Its hidden razor cuts through seat belts.

We hope you’ll only need to use this device’s main feature: its dual USB charging port. It charges a 1 x 2.4Amp and 1 x 1.0Amp devices at the same time. To protect your phone and other devices, this charger has a built-in technology that prevents overcharging. This will help keep your mobile phones, tablets, and GPS navigators charged while you’re on the road.

3. ACR C-Strobe H20 Water Activated LED PFD Emergency Strobe

Do you work or spend a lot of leisure time on the water? If so, you might know about the dangers involved in being on lakes, rivers, and oceans. People who fall off a boat are often knocked unconscious and slip beneath the surface. Even if they’re awake when they go overboard, it can be hard to find someone in a large body of water at night. This ACR water-activated emergency strobe light can be a huge help in these dangerous situations.

This strobe light is designed to be attached to your personal floatation device. It begins to go off the moment person wearing it hits the water. This is extremely helpful for anyone who is knocked unconscious or is dazed after falling out of a bat. The light also can be activated manually for those who have the presence of mind to do so. This bright, blinking LED light provides for a long useable life, which is what anyone who’s lost at sea needs to help aid their rescuers. Like all emergency supplies, this personal light is better to have and not need than the other way around!
