ready To Go Survival was founded by two first responders with one objective – to create life saving products that are designed to the unique needs of each and every customer.
On the evening of October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy made landfall, and the impact reverberated across more than a dozen states. The storm battered the East Coast, particularly the densely-populated New York and New Jersey coasts, with strong winds, heavy rain, and record storm surges.
During Sandy’s immediate aftermath, more than 23,000 people sought refuge in temporary shelters, and more than 8.5 million customers lost power. The storm flooded numerous roads and tunnels, blocked transportation corridors, and deposited extensive debris along the coastline.
That same day, the founders phones rang off the hook with friends, family, and acquaintances calling for advice.
“Where do I go?” “What do I need?” “Can I buy a flashlight from you guys? the local store is sold out!”
It was at that very moment, out of a basic human need, that Ready To Go Survival was born.
