Preparedness is key: Safety poll results

In a recent safety poll, we asked you, our loyal Eton Corp brand ambassadors, how truly prepared you are in the event of an emergency. Although most of you seemed to have the right tools, like an emergency radio and safety kit, readily available, 30% didn’t have a plan of attack when it comes to home evacuation.

Take a look at our findings below and ask yourself if you’re truly prepared for an emergency.

 

How many people have an emergency kit
