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.
The Cascadia Quake Kits have obviously been designed very carefully with each component researched and selected on merit. The compact nature of these collections are packed expertly in plastic tubs which allow for easy and easily accessed storage in the home. The tutorial offered by Marilyn upon delivery is invaluable, and includes a complete breakdown of a tub's contents as well as answers to any and all questions regarding responses to an emergency.
Marilyn has performed such a valuable service for us by putting together such a super quake kit. All my questions were answered honestly and promptly and delivery was really simple. Kit organization is excellent and directions are very straightforward. Now I feel much more prepared and better educated about preparedness.
Web Site was easy to navigate and useful for finding what I wanted. Bought two of the 3-Day Get-Home Packs as presents for my kids who commute. They will be better prepared for an emergency .
Marilyn was really great to deal with...prompt with delivery, ready to answer any questions and followed up several days later to make sure we had everything we needed. A great company to do business with and a great product. It was nice to have several options of kits...for the number of people and the number of days to provide. Love her kits!
Meeting Marilyn was a wonderful experience! She is very dedicated and passionate about helping others prepare and is making a difficult task much easier. She even showed me how to turn off my water and gas (wrench included in my kit!). I Strongly recommend these kits! I feel much more confident about my being able to deal w/ a disaster and care for myself and maybe someone else. Thank you very very much Marilyn!
Immediate response, well thought out kit, delivered on time. Glad to throw away the long to-do list of getting an emergency kit ready.
My wife and I bought quake kits for our home and our vehicles -- we're extremely pleased. Marilyn's forethought, careful curation, and thorough organization make her kits simply outstanding. To top it off, Marilyn's personal service when she delivered the kits and made sure we understood what we had and (for example) where to turn off our natural gas was a bonus. Highly recommend these. We'd been talking for years about how we needed to get prepared -- buying a little extra water here, getting a hand-cranked radio there -- but we never actually sat down with a list and accumulated everything we needed. The kit takes a huge load off our minds. Plus, we've been showing off the kits to friends and family -- all of them are blown away by the quality and completeness of the kits. Now we're motivated to do additional planning -- you know, answering the where-do-we-meet-if questions you've been putting off for years. Thanks, Marilyn!
I was very impressed by the thoroughness and attention to detail Marilyn gives to these kits. I feel a sense of security with having everything necessary for a survival time in my garage. Marilyn was great to work with too, she has good resources to share also. I had long felt I should be doing more to prepare for a quake and every time I read and heard about the potential for a very disastrous event in our near future I felt that my few measures were inadequate. Once I had the kit in the garage I felt we had a better chance of being OK and not being a burden on an emergency system that would be stretched.
I'm so excited about Cascadia Quake Kits! Everything--from the website to the order process to the quality of the product--is excellent. Marilyn delivered my kits (ordered some for Christmas gifts) and explained the contents. Written preparation recommendations was a bonus I hadn't expected. I've been meaning to create a disaster kit for YEARS, but it seemed so daunting to gather all those supplies, it just kept slipping to the bottom of the to do list. I feel great about now having a kit for my husband and me, and also for giving kits to my kids and my sister-in-law for gifts.
We love this product. We have been wondering how and what to buy to prepare for the big one. Marilyn does all the work for you. We got the Starter kit as a first step. Marilyn personally delivered it to our house and sat down with us to explain the importance of all the items in the box and answered all our questions about the products and earthquake preparedness. Before purchsing our kit, it was one of those things that felt so overwhelming, I didn't really want to think about it. Now, not only do we have something that gives us more peace of mind, we have a plan on what to do in the case of an emergency.
I ordered the Cascade Quake Kit for two people for two weeks and was so impressed upon receiving it that I decided it would be my 30th anniversary present to my husband - what better gift could I give? Living with the uneasiness of not knowing what, how or when this huge event might happen was something that would wake me up at night. Now I can rest easier knowing that we have a plan with all the necessary supplies to sustain us in case of an emergency.
Great orientation. I feel more relaxed about possible disaster, this kit is a great first step in preparing for the worst
I was extremely satisfied that my Cascadia Quake Kit has all the essentials for survival for two weeks.
After planning and researching, I opted to get prepared with Cascadia Quake Kits and I couldn't be happier. Marilyn worked with my schedule for quick and easy delivery and walked me through the new kit. She also had many great tips for earthquake readiness like turning off the main water supply and when and how to turn off the gas. Kit also comes with an easy to follow guide for getting prepared that starts with filling you water supply and includes organizing emergency contacts and meeting places. Add to that the 'go bag' I will keep in my car, and I can sleep easy knowing I'm prepared for the initial 2 weeks after 'the really big one. Thanks Marilyn!
It has everything you need for a few day's and my wife loves it.
You all were very patient and informative, answering all our questions. I'm relieved we have taken this step.
They provided fabulous customer service. They consulted with me about what kit would be best for my family. They were helpful, professional, incredibly knowledgeable and we got the kit super fast! Every time the media is filled with news about "the big one" that's going to hit Seattle one of these days, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and immobilized with fear. Where do you start? Well, most of us DON'T. After meeting them at an event and seeing the kits, I KNEW it was a great, concrete step I could take to protect my family. Sure, it's an expense for something you hope you NEVER need to use. But it comes with a HUGE sense of relief and reassurance that in the event of ANY kind of disaster, we're going to be OK!
Before finding Cascadia kits I felt stuck/overwhelmed with what needed to be done to prepare for the Big earthquake, hence I did nothing. It was such a relief to get all these supplies and finally feel less helpless/hopeless.
I ordered 2 of the basic car packs for my wife and I. I am very happy with these to start off our preparedness. We look forward to purchasing the home kits soon. Glad that you are a local company and also giveback to the community.
I felt like we wouldn't be ready for a big disaster. Now I am much more comfortable if something happens.
This was an important, but easily attainable, step in in the direction of being better prepared.
Marilyn could not have made it easier!! Getting prepared had been on my list forever but every time I thought about it I became overwhelmed. Not only is the kit awesome and very affordable, Marilyn is a great resource! I couldn't be happier with Cascadia Quake Kits! They are a fantastic local company that really knows their stuff!
There really aren't other 2 week kits out there. I looked and many places said they were selling 1 or 2 week kits, but they were more like 2-3 days! Thanks for building an actual 2 week kit for the PNW!
Damn! You have really thought of everything. Nice work.
My husband and I had been meaning to get earthquake ready for years but it never seemed to get done. I read an article about Cascadia Quake Kits and that was the spark we needed. We ordered one and Marilyn personally delivered it in only a few days. She went over all of the items with me, plus the lists of other things to do. The kits are high quality and we highly recommend that if you’re like us, regular folks who are busy and who just couldn't get it together, to check out Cascadia Quake Kits. We can say we are finally earthquake readyI
