Pelican Products Gears Up for 2019 National Preparedness Month

TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Pelican Products, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance protective cases, temperature-controlled packaging solutions and advanced portable lighting systems, recognizes National Preparedness Month this September.

Every September since 2004, National Preparedness Month has been sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which falls under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security. National Preparedness Month is a time to remind and encourage Americans to take steps to prepare their homes, businesses, schools and communities for emergencies such as natural disasters. Pelican Products offers many high-quality items designed to help people navigate these extreme circumstances.

The infographic shown here [https://www.pelican.com/us/en/media/docs/Pelican-Disaster-Preparedness-8-30-19.pdf] illustrates how a variety of Pelican™ products can be used to prepare for many types of disasters. Pelican products, available in stores and at pelican.com, include watertight multipurpose equipment containers, coolers to keep supplies chilled during power interruptions, and a collection of reliable, sturdy flashlights.

“Pelican Products have proven essential in emergency and disaster situations,” says Sharon Ward, Pelican’s Director of Public and Media Relations. “We are in a position to help people who are facing dangerous circumstances. We will continue to focus our efforts on producing exceptional products designed to help consumers and first responders navigate through challenging times.”

In recognition of National Preparedness Month, Pelican Products is donating 1,000 flashlights to Direct Relief. This nonprofit organization provides medication and other supplies to healthcare providers throughout the U.S. and worldwide to help save the lives of vulnerable people struggling to survive catastrophic events such as wildfires, hurricanes and floods.

The donation comes under the wings of Pelican’s charitable giving program known as “Pelican Protects: Supporting The Heroes Who Protect Us.” The program is focused on providing both product and financial contributions to support first responders including firefighters, law enforcement, EMTs, rescue workers, medical personnel, and disaster relief organizations.
