Lights Out, No Problem

August 31, 2015

Did you happen to notice it was a little windy over the weekend?  With over half a million BC Hydro customers without power, we at DRS realized that you might benefit from a pre-packaged emergency preparedness kit.  Whether it's wind storms, power outages or earthquakes, we highly recommend you make sure you have some sort of a disaster kit, know what is in it and have an emergency plan.

So, to facilitate that, we're offering 15% off of each of our emergency preparedness buckets from now until the end of September 2015.

Apply the discount code BLACKOUT15 at checkout to receive your discount.

 

We also recommend you read some of the great resources available at BC's Provincial Emergency Preparedness website and the 72 Hour Planning Guide created by the federal government.

 

*Did you know we also stock numerous other preparedness kits?  From the boat to the car to the swimming pool, let us know what you are looking for and we will make sure you get exactly what you need!
