Make Sure Your Survival Shelter Has Emergency Lights

Published on November 21st, 2014 | by


It’s the end of the world, the walking dead are everywhere, but you’ve made it to your well-stocked, zombie-proofed shelter. You’re thinking everything is all well and good, and then the power goes out, probably for good. Good thing you installed those emergency lights!

After all, major power utilities aren’t likely to last too long in a SHTF, and those initial hours and days can make all the difference to your long term survival. Having a couple of battery-backed emergency lights for your home or shelter will ensure that you’re not left in the dark, literally, when the power runs out.

Preparing for the end of the world requires a certain level of practicality, and while flashlights and lanterns might seem like a solution to a lack of power, installing a pair of emergency lights can cost less than a new video game, but provide a lot of peace-of-mind. It’s these small little decisions that will help provide the edge needed to survive in a world of lawlessness and (maybe) zombies.

With units offering up to 24 hours of continuous light, you can keep the darkness at bay for at least one more day while you get ready for new life in a changed world.
