23 Fatalities After Alabama Tornado Outbreak

Disaster Preparedness Initiative Increase after Tornado Onslaught

Woodbridge, United States - March 15, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

At least 23 fatalities, including three children, have been reported as a number of tornadoes hit Alabama, Florida, and Georgia, March 3, 2019, which resulted in catastrophic damage across six states, according to a local news report. 38 tornadoes touched down across the Southeastern US, with 12 hitting Alabama, reaching wind speeds up to 170 miles per hour

Sheriff Jay Jones of Lee County told reporters that it was as if “someone took a giant knife and just scraped the ground.” Moreover, he added that the East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika had received more than 60 patients as of Sunday night, some with “very serious injuries.” There are still several people that remain unaccounted for, of which the exact figure was not revealed. Emergency Management Director for Lee County, Kathrine Carson, said that the tornado was the “worst natural disaster that has ever occurred in Lee County.”

“People are rethinking their preparedness levels and are searching for products that can leverage their “survival” when natural calamities hit their area,” said Amanda Condry, Surviveware co-founder. “Apart from having enough staple goods in the home and workplace, it is important to have safety provisions in case of injury,” she said.

Amid a natural disaster, it may take hours before medical professionals can reach a home or office building. Thus such places need to be stocked with first aid provisions to be able to provide immediate first aid to the injured in the vicinity.

Surviveware’s popular Small First Aid Kit can help give immediate medical attention to wounds and contusions within the critical 72-hour period. Being reliant and self-sufficient within this window can make a difference in lowering the risk of infection and septic shock. Moreover, it helps stabilize a patient before they’re brought to the hospital.

The compact first aid kit provides enough content to handle wounds, bruises, insect bites, and splinters. It also comes with a portable CPR kit and a first aid manual that one can refer to in emergencies. The small first aid kit has MOLLE-friendly straps that conveniently attach to any backpack or go-bag. It is also water-resistant and comes with a red laminate casing that adds protection to the whole package.

Surviveware’s products have been sought after by preparedness enthusiasts and emergency responders. One of their customers, L.Lee, shared what pushed him to purchase a Surviveware First Aid Kit: “Wow wow wow. It's an impressive kit indeed. I'm an avid motorcyclist, and I take long road trips on my bike. I wanted a new, small but loaded first aid kit that I could take on my trips just in case "something should go wrong." You never know! I am so pleased with all of the items in the kit, and the quality of every item and its packaging and labeling. It's better than described, and it exceeds my expectations. I'm a product safety consultant by profession, so I am very picky and not easily impressed with products. This kit has all that I need, in a small but thorough collection of first aid essentials, packed and labeled neatly in an excellent zippered case. I'm glad I bought this kit!”

In support of the country’s effort to ensure the safety and preparedness of local communities, Surviveware is giving away 20% Amazon discount coupons when you purchase their first aid kits.

UK's May tweaks Brexit deal in last-ditch bid to win support

May 22, 2019

LONDON — British Prime Minister Theresa May secured backing from her Cabinet Tuesday for tweaks to her proposed European Union divorce terms that she hopes can finally get Parliament's approval for her thrice-rejected Brexit deal. The Cabinet met for three hours to work out details of what May has called a "bold offer" to win support for her Brexit agreement. May was due to give details of what's being billed as her "new deal" in a speech later Tuesday. But it's unlikely changes agreed by the government — whose members are divided over the terms of Britain's EU departure —...

Uncertainty looms over UK as Brexit compromise talks fail

May 22, 2019

LONDON — Talks between Britain's Conservative government and the opposition Labour Party seeking a compromise over Brexit broke down without agreement Friday, plunging the country back into a morass of uncertainty over its departure from the European Union. Each side blamed the other for the collapse. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said the talks with Prime Minister Theresa May's government had "gone as far as they can." "We have been unable to bridge important policy gaps between us," Corbyn said in a letter to May released by Labour. And with May set to announce within weeks that she plans to...

UEFA investigators send Man City case to judges for verdict

May 22, 2019

NYON, Switzerland — UEFA says its club finance investigators have sent their Manchester City file to independent judges for a verdict. The English champion faces a one-year ban from the Champions League, potentially next season. The club finance panel opened its formal case against City in March "for potential breaches of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations that were made public in various media outlets." Internal documents about City's business and emails between club executives were published in the Football Leaks series led by German magazine Der Spiegel. The revelations suggested City officials deceived UEFA over several years, including by disguising...

Stockpiling boosted UK economy ahead of initial Brexit date

May 22, 2019

LONDON — The British economy expanded by a solid quarterly rate of 0.5% in the first three months of the year as firms geared up for the long-anticipated Brexit date. However, that boon is set to diminish in coming months and growth is expected to ease as the country hurtles toward its next Brexit date. Much of the growth reported Friday by the Office for National Statistics appears to have been due to firms stockpiling raw materials and products ahead of Britain's scheduled departure from the EU on March 29, a deadline that's since been extended to Oct. 31. Overall...

Singapore reportedly criminalizes publication of fake news

May 22, 2019

SINGAPORE — Singapore reportedly has passed a law criminalizing publication of fake news and allowing the government to block and order the removal of such content.
