While volunteering with the American Red Cross, Amy Sandoz saw firsthand how difficult it was for busy families to prepare for emergencies. To aid families in emergency preparation, Amy launched Ready Set Go Kits, providing ready-made emergency survival kits and assorted disaster supplies.
I received the Emergency Kit for Kids to review, and having it in my vehicle gave me a sense of security, especially while driving in some harsh winter storms. I knew that if my car broke down, I would have emergency supplies within reach.
I am very impressed by the quality and durability of the Emergency Kit for Kids. I also appreciate how well it is organized and the fact that there is still plenty of room to add additional supplies and toys.
The Emergency Kits for Kids is just one of the many available kits for sale at Ready Set Go Kits. It comes packed in a child-sized backpack and is designed to meet the needs of a child 11 years old and younger.
Each kit contains the emergency supplies for a child during the first 72 hours of a disaster and space for your child to pack items that are important to him/her.
