Research has shown that only 9 percent of businesses are prepared for an emergency. And a recent survey conducted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency found that 60 percent of American adults haven’t practiced what they should do in the event of a disaster.

Get Ready Now offers customized packs designed for the first 24 to 72 hours after an emergency. They come in a waterproof, clear bag so the contents can be easily seen and include everything needed for survival in the first few days after a catastrophic event occurs. All the pack’s contents come with a five-year warranty and are unwrapped and ready for use, including batteries.

Kim says Get Ready Now is serving both residential and corporate markets. The company’s kits include a 24-hour grab-and-go pack for the first day after an event occurs, a vehicle pack and a full 72-hour grab-and-go pack. There’s also a student pack designed for kids that can be used in an educational setting. And for corporate clients, a notification is included about when to replace food and water so the packs are always up to date. The packs can be found at
