Natural disaster can be terrifying. Earthquakes, fires, tornadoes and hurricanes can turn peace into chaos in no time flat. Though your chances of getting caught up in the destructive path of a natural disaster may seem pretty slim, it never hurts to be prepared for the worst. Being ready for anything shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg, however, so we’ve rounded up some of our favorite deals on emergency gear to help you out.
You never know where you’re going to be when disaster strikes, so it’s good to have something packed and ready to go.
The Ready America Emergency Kit comes in a convenient backpack and is packed with enough supplies to sustain two people for three days. The pack includes, food, water, emergency blankets, a 33-piece first aid kit, and two safety light sticks.
Put an emergency pack in your car, boat, or house so you know you’ll be prepared no matter where you are or what happens. You can pick up a pack for just $30 on Amazon after a 24 percent discount, or check out our 12 emergency kit musts to make your own.
Potable water can be hard to come by during floods, hurricanes, and many other disasters. However, hoarding enough water to fully prepare for such a situation is neither convenient or cost-effective.

One of the first things to go during a natural disaster is the electricity. Though it doesn’t usually take very long to get everything up and running again, it doesn’t hurt to be ready for an extended blackout.

Powered by the sun or by hand, this radio has a built-in AM/ FM radio, flashlight, blinker, and siren alarm, along with a phone charger. Grab one on for $22 on Amazon after a 22 percent discount.
The last thing you need is for your car to stop working during an emergency. Cars can malfunction for various reasons but often all you need are some jumper cables to get you back on the road.
This DBPOWER 600A Peak 18000mAh Portable Car Jump Starter does just that by jump starting your vehicle up to 30 times with 600 amps of peak current.
The high-quality gold clamps have over current protection, short circuit protection, overload protection, over-voltage protection, overcharge protection to get you up and running quickly and safely. Grab one for $73 on Amazon after a 54 percent discount.
Medical assistance isn’t always easy to come by during natural disasters. Hospitals can lose power and also just be jam packed with so many people it’s nearly impossible to get good service. With some injuries, a hospital is required but if you can handle the injury yourself, you’ll be much better prepared.
The E Support™ 34 Piece First Aid Emergency Kit keeps you prepared for any minor injuries that may occur.
It’s portable and lightweight so you can easily take it with you, and it conveniently has clear pockets that make it easy to identify any item you need. Grab one on Amazon for $7 after a 30 percent discount.
