SURVIVING THE BIG ONE!
In the event of a mega catastrophe, a very large geographical area is affected.
Consequently, every support network and chain of supply is severely compromised.
With thin transportation lines, evacuation of millions of people to remote locations
is challenging and sometimes impossible. Survivors must rely on resources already at hand.
In a natural disaster, life is severely disrupted. In this period of destruction,
confusion and vulnerability, people are often dislocated to makeshift shelters and in need of
even the most basic amenities. Casualties can be in the thousands or even millions, with many
more victims in the aftermath of the calamity. With proper organization, training and preparation,
however, the potential loss can be considerably minimized.
Government agencies and international relief organizations are not adequately prepared to handle calamities of significant magnitude.

The cost in life and property loss was enormous but the outcome could have been very different if they had been better prepared.
The "Blueprint Survival" container provides an alternative to evacuation and support during the rebuilding process.
In time of need, the Blueprint Survival container could be an indispensable lifeline to safety, health and comfort.
The components of a Blueprint Survival container are plentiful and relatively inexpensive for the service provided.
To be decisively effective, the containers must be already on location, in sufficient quantities,
when the disaster hits. In a large-scale catastrophe, raw components would be harder to find,
suppliers' pools would be limited, prices would be inflated due to the sudden surge in demand,
and time for delivery would be a prohibitive factor. As a result, the containers must be assembled and
delivered prior to a disaster. Preemptive ordering and delivery ensures the lowest manufacturing cost and timely delivery.
Many lives could be at stake.
