ICE PACK's Emergency Sustainment Systems are designed and developed to provide "turn-key" emergency preparedness and disaster response solutions. Not just a "kit", ICE PACK Emergency Sustainment Systems are stocked with essential supplies far beyond the minimum. Our Emergency Sustainment Systems define the difference between sustainment vs. survival. Our ESS's are purpose built to remain fresh for up to five years* in easy-to-store, easy-to-open, water proof high visibility 6-gallon containers with glow-in-the-dark labels. ICE PACK Emergency Sustainment Systems can keep organizations functioning and people thriving for three days to two weeks, until public utilities, civil and social services are restored or rescue occurs.
ICE PACK Emergency Sustainment Systems are made in workplace size 16-person, office size 8-person, family size 4-person, and smaller sizes for couples and individuals. Each ICE PACK Emergency Sustainment System consists of 15 integrated high quality modules and can be customized for enterprise-wide use. Each Emergency Sustainment System contains: disaster planning, preparedness and response guides; shelter-in-place and shelter repair supplies; all hazards multi-band radio; environmental and personal protection; emergency lighting; emergency signaling devices; lithium battery power; emergency multi-tools; medical first aid; safe drinking water and hot food; personal hygiene items; and even supplies for emergency record keeping and entertainment designed to relieve stress. If your concern is sustaining your family, office, workplace or organization, then ICE PACK™ Emergency Sustainment Systems is your answer.
The Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response Manuals were selected to provide you with disaster planning guidance and disaster response procedures. The developers of ICE PACK™ strongly recommend that these important guides and manuals be used to help create your own personal disaster plan to include checklists, plans and procedures. A unique combination of US Department of Homeland Security information and two excellent guides to help you become more resilient to emergencies and disasters!
Staying dry and warm is critical to surviving an emergency that may include the threat of hypothermia. ICE PACK™ developers researched, tested and packaged well known and respected Space® brand products and rugged high quality nylon rain ponchos to protect you from the elements. The Environmental Protection module also includes a waterproof "Dry Bag" so you can protect important documents, and personal items from rain, flood waters and humidity.
Hot meals during a disaster event help you to maintain a sense of normalcy. ICE PACK™ developers have packaged everything needed to make flavorful hot meals for you, your family and/or co-workers. Varied menus are prepared in water activated flameless ovens. All food and water stores are shelf stable for up to 5-years!
Water is absolutely essential to your good health! ICE PACK™ Emergency Sustainment Systems (ESS) provide clean, pure, fresh water with no concerns about plastic bottles and short expiration dates. Shelf stable for up to 5-years ICE PACK™ ESS utilize two of the USA's leading manufacturers of drinking water manufactured to DHS/US Coast Guard CFR No. 160.026/66/0 standards. These manufacturers utilize different sterile packaging methods that allow ICE PACK™ developers to include separate drinking water and food preparation water supplies. In the event you are able to find a reliable potable water supply we've provided you with a collapsible 5-gallon container for water collection. Flavored water drink mix packages are also included.
Emergency signaling by day or night alerts rescuers or searchers to your location. All of the signaling devices used by our ESS developers in this module are Made in America. Using the STORM® whistle you will be heard, loud and clear for up to 1 mile. ICE PACK™'s Emergency Distress Signal Flag alerts ground or air rescuers to your location and need for assistance. The high quality Sidewinder flashlight is perhaps one of the best multi-use lighting devices for use in emergency situations.
This is a medical first aid package designed to treat injuries suffered from various types of emergencies and disasters. ICE PACK™ developers encourage all persons to attend first aid training. All medical supplies are high quality name brand components like Celox™, Heatmax®, Moldex®, Purell®, Neosporin®, and others. Well known and trusted Over the Counter medications include:
Bayer®, Tylenol®, Imodium®, Mucinex®, Advil® and Pepto-Bismol®, need to be replaced annually to insure effectiveness
ICE PACK™ developers worked months to design a modern Personal Hygiene system that met the needs of men, women and children. This system manages human waste cleanly, efficiently and without unpleasant odors. Easy to use advanced technology Clean Waste® disposal bags, Charmin® multi-ply toilet tissue, Purell® hand sanitizer, and feminine hygiene supplies are standard.
ICE PACK™ Emergency Sustainment Systems use high quality Midland Radio equipment. The ER102 can be powered by multiple power sources, receives local AM/FM/NOAA Weather/All Hazards broadcasts and has its own LED light source. The Energi To Go® AA cell phone back-up will charge your cell phone battery and allow you to make calls after your primary battery has died. ESS offers you the optional Midland 75-785 hand held 4-watt 40-channel CB radio as a crisis communication option.
ICE PACK™ ESS lights the night! Our Emergency Lighting module provides you with several types of lighting for use in emergency situations for hours or days of use. We provide an individual headlamp for hands free usage, chemical light sticks for overnight lighting or signaling and a multi-wick candle and matches for extreme conditions.
It is important to keep your spirits up and a positive frame of mind during a disaster. ICE PACK™'s developers have included playing cards with survival instructions printed on the backs and board games such as Checkers and Scrabble.
Whether you are writing journal entries during a prolonged disaster or recording critical information the Rite-In-The-Rain® journal and water proof pen make it happen. They say that "a picture is worth a thousand words" and that's why ICE PACK™ developers included a 36 exposure 35mm film camera with flash!
It's an unfortunate fact of life that during a disaster sometimes people, and/or pets on the loose, can become very aggressive, even threatening and can become predatory. ICE PACK™'s developers chose Guardian PD's OC Pepper Spray to provide you with a less-than-lethal method of defending yourself (Not available in all states).
There are many great multi-tools available in the market and ICE PACK developers chose two exceptional ones for use in our Emergency Sustainment Systems. The Leatherman CRUNCH® is a fantastic set of lock pliers that allows you to get a serious grip on the situation! The Victorinox Rescue Tool is truly a multi-purpose emergency tool that allows you to cut, saw, break, loosen and pry your way out of many situations!
When windows are blown out, walls smashed, roofs torn off, or water is rising the Shelter-In-Place and Shelter Repair Materials module allows you to temporarily make that repair. This module also provides you with ample supplies to seal a room against airborne threats using Shelter-In-Place techniques.
Lessons learned from the Hurricane Katrina disaster indicate that you may need to sustain yourself, family or co-workers for more than three days, perhaps as many as seven until civil services are restored. Battery power is a key component of crisis communications, emergency lighting, and life safety devices contained in ICE PACK™'s ESS. Our developers have provisioned you with premium quality long lasting Energizer® Lithium batteries that have a shelf life of up to 10 years!
