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!
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!!!)!
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 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 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.
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.
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!
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!
