Choose the Right Two-Week Kit for You
What a relief and mental edge it is to know that I am equipped with such a trunk locker full of so many survival essentials...hoping that I'll never, ever have to open the lid (except to exchange the perishables, in a couple of years, of course!!!)!
It became clear that our family needed to be prepared for a potential disaster when we had our beautiful little girl. We we want to give her the best chance when an earthquake comes our way. Preparing for a disaster is overwhelming, especially with a family. Luckily, in our search, we stumbled upon Cascadia Quake Kits. Upon delivery they even took the time to walk us through and review everything in the kit as well as helped assess and provide additional recommendations to our current disaster plan. The time saved and the peace of mind knowing that we are that much closer to being prepared is well worth the money. Thank you!
I received my kit for 4 people. The containers are very substantial, organized and easy to store. I haven't used but am impressed with the paperwork and organization. It's been on my list for several years and this gives my family a strong entree into our disaster preparedness. Thank you for this.
I was very impressed with my experience with Cascadia Quake Kits. They were responsive and got my kit to me in a timely manner. The kit itself was well organized and the included information sheets were incredibly informative. There were very clear instructions for next steps and how to sanitize and fill the water jugs. I would absolutely recommend these kits to others (and already have).
A small business owner very committed to her mission, Marilyn seems to truly care about the people she is serving and is providing a quality product.
I knew I needed to do this, COVID 19 pushed me forward. Definitely have some peace of mind knowing my family is prepared. Shipping notifications were a bonus!
We had been thinking about getting one of these kits after seeing them at the Fremont Street fair. The recent Coronavirus scare has really made it apparent how fast things can go haywire, and an earthquake would be much more sudden and impactful...we've taken the current situation to be a wake up call, and we realize we should be doing more to be prepared. We purchased the two person earthquake starter kit, we feel that it's a good investment that we hope will never actually be needed, but it's peace of mind that if disaster strikes (or this current pandemic gets more out of hand) that we have at least got some essentials and won't be desperate for food, water and other supplies. The kit also comes with some tips on other preparation steps to take, so it feels good to have thought through all the things we might otherwise panic or forget about altogether in an emergency.
They went out of their way to make sure I could get my kit, even with COVID 19 locking down supply chains. I was feeling unprepared for when the big one hits ... now I sleep better at night.
I purchased the kit in early March after Cascadia Quake Kits became a sponsor of OPB Morning Edition. Marilyn, the owner, worked closely with me to make sure I had the 14 day kit and 3 day backpack before Portland ordered shelter in place. She wiped down all items and loaded them in my car. She was very friendly and invited me to call with any questions. It was a bit like Christmas when I opened the 14 day kit and 3 day backpack. I am impressed with the quality and thoroughness of the kits. I possibly could have saved a little money gathering individual items but everything was so well organized and compact in the bright red units.
Great website with details about each type of kit. Super easy to arrange delivery. Kits are well-prepared and contained items I had not heard/thought about. Based on my research the kits are priced appropriately given all the items included. In addition, videos are available to familiarize yourself with the functionality of the items. Marilyn is awesome to work with and is a wealth of information! I had spent a lot of time reading and researching what was needed to have in a kit. It was a daunting task to try pull it all together, find and purchase all the items, get it organized and make sure it would be functional. Consequently, it just never came together. After I purchased these kits the stress and worry was gone and I felt much more prepared for an emergency.
I found it easy to work with Marilyn, the owner of Cascadia Quake Kits. She helped me customize my order and filled it quickly. I'm grateful for her research at organizing these essentials an individual or family may need in an emergency. I intend to place more orders in the coming months.
I had a very positive experience. Marilyn was so pleasant. She delivered my kit and went over everything provided plus she talked about additional important information. I have found that the items in the kit are also good quality. I appreciate all the work Marilyn has done to make gathering items and preparing for emergencies less overwhelming. I like that you can feel free to call with new questions and that she provided a link to her YouTube videos going over the kit items again for your future reference.
The Cascadia Quake Kits are comprised of well-made, quality items assembled by someone of experience, freeing me of the need to spend time researching and assembling what I would need to look after myself after such a natural disaster. The kits I was finding through researching online all looked cheap and incomplete. It wasn't until I became aware of Marilyn and her Quake Kits from an article in the Portland Tribune that I knew I found someone who understood what someone living in the CSZ really needed. After that, it was not a difficult decision to make the monetary investment and I purchased kits for my home and car. Having these core tools and supplies in place is a great relief.
Great product, customer service at a very fair price.
We're excited that CQK has taken the hassle and guesswork out of putting together an emergency preparedness kit. We're ready for anything now.
