Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting is as important as food and sanitation in times of disaster and other unpredictable circumstances. Just imagine how hard it is to locate mountain climbers who fall through traps or slip down deep ravines if they do not have a shake flashlight or emergency light wand. Do you think people who live in high-rise apartments will be able to properly evacuate in case of fire or disaster if their building’s stairwells do not have emergency light? Indeed, people take the importance of light or electricity for granted. They only realize its significance when they are in a tight and dark situation.

Emergency lighting devices are useless if they are just kept in places where they are inaccessible. Even if you do have a lot of flashlights lying around in your home, but you placed them inside storage boxes in the attic or, worse, you do not know where they are, then these things would not be of any help to you under urgent situations. So, aside from making sure that everyone in your family has their own handy flashlight, you also need to make sure that these lighting gadgets are located or kept in places that are accessible to every member of your household, including your five-year-old kid. Moreover, your housekeeper or babysitter should also know where emergency supplies, including flashlights, lanterns and rechargeable lamps, can be found even if you are just going away for a few hours.

Another important thing to remember is to provide extra batteries for your emergency lighting system. There is no use having a lamp or heavy-duty flashlight if they do not have power. Thus, you need to regularly check these gadgets and make sure that they are charged or they have batteries. It may also be a good idea to keep a shake flashlight or emergency light wand in your car, RV, and even in the office.

See our “Lighting and Heating” category on our web site and you will learn that emergency lighting is also an important travel device. If you love to go camping, fishing, spelunking and even when you sleep in a hotel or rent a cabin, you need to prepare yourself and your family for any eventuality. It is wise to invest in fuel tablets, solar blankets, dynamo flashlights and radio whenever you are visiting a place or area that is new to you or is located in far flung areas. While traveling overseas, bringing a small or handy flashlight or mag light is also a very good idea.
