With natural disasters and emergencies happening on a weekly basis, from earthquakes and fires, to tornadoes and collapsed buildings, I’ve started to think about how prepared I am for something like an earthquake or wildfire, especially living in California.
The other day I was on Instagram and I saw my favorite mommy blogger, Melissa Woods Health, talking about a new emergency kit she got in the mail called JUDY. JUDY is an emergency preparedness kit, designed by experts, to support you and your family for up to 72-hours in the case of an emergency.
I ordered the Mover Max, perfect for my family of four, and it arrived within a few days. After unboxing my JUDY, there are the 5 reasons I love it the most, and why I think everyone should have a JUDY in their home.
This backpack is indestructible! It’s made from ripstop 500D tarpaulin with fully welded seams, making it waterproof and puncture proof. Another thing I noticed was that the bag does not open and close with a zipper. Instead, the opening is a fold-over. So, I don’t have to worry about zippers breaking or anything leaking into my bag.
Other emergency kits I’ve seen are in regular backpacks or cardboard boxes, which can easily rip and break when I need it the most.
I wasn’t sure if the backpack would be comfortable to carry all of my supplies, but JUDY nailed it. The back and adjustable straps are cushioned for comfort and the heavy-duty waist-belt relieves added pressure on your muscles and helps you support your kit. The bright orange color makes it incredibly easy to spot when I need it.
There are products in my JUDY Kit that I never would even think I would need during an emergency. For example, the hand-crank radio not only gives me access to the local radio stations so that I can keep up with updates, but it also has a USB port to charge my phone and a flashlight. The glow sticks come with an adjustable string to wear around your neck or tie around your bag, so you have free hands.
Little details like that make so much of a difference when in an emergency.
4. Expert-chosen and recommended
All JUDY Kits were designed and approved by emergency preparedness and disaster management experts. Each item was chosen because it’s crucial to have in an emergency. The kit has everything you need, and nothing you don’t. I’ve seen other kits have things like playing cards, which would just distract me and cause more inconvenience in an emergency when I need to quickly access my life-saving supplies.
Not only is JUDY smart because she was designed by experts, but JUDY also offers 24/7 SMS alerts and tips regarding emergencies in your area and how to prepare for them. Respond with any questions and a JUDY expert will get back to you ASAP. This gives me peace of mind knowing that I have mental support in addition to my physical kit.
If you’re looking for the best emergency kit to prepare your family for the unexpected, JUDY has everything you and your family need to survive an emergency.
