Light & Communication
Emergency Light is a critical part of emergency preparedness. Emergency lighting can provide peace of mind and a feeling of safety. It also allows you to do things like cook, use the restroom, and other activities that may happen after dark. There are various sources of light such as flame, LED light, or glow products. When purchasing survival lights you will need to consider power source. Some lights run on fuel such as kerosene, paraffin wax candles, or propane, while other lights use electricity generated by batteries, solar chargers, and dynamo hand cranks. Other products provide light using a chemical reaction that creates a glow. Finally, a more recent development in glow technology uses rare earth minerals that can be recharged each day and then be used for up to eight hours to provide night light type of lighting.
