Shopping Guide for EarthquakeKit.ca Online Store
This page is meant to guide you through the product we offer and to provide you with a better online shopping experience. Alternatively, you can complete the following contact form and we'll contact you over the phone.
We are a BC based company, so all pricing you see on our site is in CAD. For orders in the BC Lower Mainland, we're pleased to offer free hand-delivery by us directly to your door. For all kit orders to anywhere else in BC we offer free shipping. Our kits come with a 5-year shelf life and we track the expiry of the water and food rations for you and contact you when they need to be replaced.
Our standard kit is our Deluxe Backpack Kit. This is the best selling emergency preparedness kit in Canada and it's available as a 1 Person, 2 Person, 3 Person or 4 Person kit. The 1 and 2 Person Deluxe Kits come in 1 backpack while the 3 and 4 Person Deluxe Kits come in 2 backpacks.
To create a more economical alternative to our Deluxe Backpack Kit we came up with our Basic Kit, which also comes as a 1 Person, 2 Person, 3 Person and 4 Person kit. With this kit we've removed the 2 most expensive components of the Deluxe Kit, which are the 108 Piece First Aid Kit and the 5 in 1 Hand-Crank Flashlight with Build-In AM/FM Radio, USB Device Charger, Blink and Siren. Basic Kits come packaged in a recycled box instead of in backpacks.
For larger homes and workplaces we offer our Group Kits, which can be purchased as a 5 Person all the way up to a 100 Person Kit. As these kits are primarily intended for workplaces, they contain some additional/different components compared to our Deluxe and Basic Kits.
All our kits include 3600 Calorie Food Ration Packs, but for those of you that want a more substantial meal we offer Mountain House Freeze Dried Food in the #10 Size Cans. Available in 7 different recipes ranging from Scrambled Eggs with Bacon to Chicken Teriyaki with Rice and Vegetables.
If none of our kits meet your exact needs, we also sell all the components featured in our kits separately under the Individual Items sections of our site. Use this section to build your own kit or purchase replacement or add-on supplies.
At EarthquakeKit.ca, we're not just dedicated to earthquake preparedness. We're proud to offer First Alert Escape Ladders, great for fire protection and any disaster that may require a speedy exit from your home. They're available as a 2-Story and 3-Story Escape Ladder.
We are pleased to be the first official retailer of the Tribal.Systems Early Earthquake Home Alarm System. The system ties into the Tribal.Systems sensor network through your WIFI or Ethernet. The network has sensors in various locations across BC. When an earthquake occurs, the P-Waves trigger the closest sensor, which then communicates with the network. Using an algorithm, the network instantly calculates how long it will take for the quake to be felt at your location and triggers your alarm with an audible warning of how long you have before it reaches you. Most people in Coastal BC can expect at least a 45 second heads-up. This gives you enough time to grab your loved-ones and take cover.
