Light Sticks are a great disaster preparedness solution. Safe, because there is no flame, heat or sparking. Just light. Our green Emergency Cyalume Light Sticks also known as Glow Sticks or snap lights can be purchased in bulk for considerable savings. These are American made, be careful of Chinese made glow sticks, unsafe chemicals and poor light quality and short shelf life. Light sticks create an instant, safe, reliable light during power outages, evacuations, severe weather, and other emergencies.
They turn on in a snap, simply bend, break and shake mixing the chemicals safely in a plastic casing to create instant light. Each Glowstick provides 12 hours of light for CERT Search & Rescue teams. They come with a 5 year shelf life.
In the event of an Earthquake, use in place of candles which can start fires and become a risk when used after an earthquake with the risk of aftershocks. Candles can spill open flames onto the floor and carpet, drapes, etc. Keep light sticks stored throughout the home for power outages and other disasters. Store a few light sticks in your child’s night stand for any emergency. Easy for kids to use and completely safe.
And for cars, Light Sticks are much better than road flares. No risk of causing a brush fire from the roadside, risk of burning yourself or inhaling noxious smoke. Light Sticks provide light for 12 hours instead of 15 minutes and glowsticks are visible for miles.
Stock up for disasters, earthquakes, power outages, and always carry some in your vehicle and your school classroom pack or at your work desk for evacuations. CERT teams should pack emergency light sticks for search and rescue operations and traffic control. Marking off hazards and triage and first aid areas at night. Glowsticks are a great back up to flashlights and batteries.
