Smart Earth Services keeps a watchful eye on world happenings and gets feeds from around the world with regard to the status of disaster planning in many countires. We have developed a range of Disaster Recovery / Survival Solutions to address common needs of individuals, families and groups that wish to plan and be prepared for negative events which may cause a change to current living situations.

 

PREPAREDNESS FROM THIS SIMPLE . . .


BUG-OUT BOX . . .

TO THIS . . . 20/40ft shipping container . . .

and a lot in between. We package survival equipment, food and water into these containers and provide a one stop shop solution for your outdoor survival needs. You can start small with a single BUG-OUT BOX for 3 days survival and work up to a 40ft shipping container that will provide up to 12 months survival living.



STOCKING UP FOR DISASTER: NOT JUST FOR THE CRAZIES ANYMORE!!

WHY WORRY? - There have been many disasters in recent times. Beginning with the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 that saw the destruction of the Twin Towers to the nightmarish aftermath of Hurricane Katrina; from massive flooding and wildfires in the United States to devastating earthquakes in Haiti and Chile; FLoods in Thailand and now the unprecedented destruction in Japan and Thailand that has seen coast-side cities wiped off the face of the map and nuclear power plants melting down, earth quakes in New Zealand, the last ten years has seen an ominous spike in events that only makes disaster preparation that much more of a necessity for all of us. The fact is that when a calamity happens its too late to prepare as recent disasters can attest. Food runs out, accomodation is scare in the area and your survival can be at risk. Enter S.O.S. Emergency Containers! And whilst Australia has been the lucky country it has had its share of disasters with hurricans, storm weather and flooding to name a few recent events.

Cataclysms, disasters, catastrophes, crises, calamities, and emergencies. They happen more often than wed like. They can range anywhere from a major earthquake, to a blizzard, to an uncontrolled wildfire, to a localized house fire. The best way to survive any calamity is to be prepared. But how does one go about preparing for who knows what? It all seems so ambiguous and far removed from where we live our daily lives. We get up, take the kids to school, go to work, come home, eat, watch a little TV, go to bed and do it again the next day (with a few vacations thrown in for good measure). In our own comfortable routines, we are lulled into a sense of cocooned safety which leads to complacency. But then something happens a flood that wipes you out overnight. Perhaps a hurricane (like the now infamous Katrina), and you realize more fully how quickly an emergency can arise.

SEE WHY MIGHT YOU NEED AN S.O.S. EMERGENCY CONTAINER? Don't just take our word for it . . .

to give people from 3 days to 12 months accomodation, cooking, survival, great food and clean water until more permanent solutions can be obtained.

These include accomodation and all gear necessary for basic survival all packaged into a standard shipping container (no modifications).

Queensland floods recenty devestated many people and an entire State of Australia. Sure it has happened before ( a long time ago) but climatic changes and being touted on every news channel around the world. There may not be much in it - then again like insurance against a car accident, can you afford not to BE PREPARED?

There's plenty of survival stuff so having it all on standby offers peace of mind in extreme circumstances. In the USA many people are now preparing for short term and medium term survival. There are UTube videos by the hundreds showing innovative ways to use shipping containers for emergency or longer term accomodation and survival. It's happening now and US trends typically end up here as well. Join two together and make a home. Join three and make an even bigger home etc. With pull down sides, windows , furniture and more you might even think its a home away from home at any time.

We have 30sqm of totally dry sleepng area, 15sqm of mostly dry cooking area and 45sqm of covered sitting out area - a total of 90sqm undercover. This year we had exceptionally high rainfall.

We are very satisfied with the shipping containers.

It doesn't matter if it's a situation that happens in your home, in your community, at the workplace, at a state or national level... if you're not prepared, the cost of that inaction can be greater than anything you've ever imagined. An ice storm in left thousands without power for a week or longer. Few were prepared. Major floods overwhelmed. Thousands fled water-filled homes, but it was a week or more before power was restored. Because of flood contamination, there was no drinking water, and the sewers were overflowing from the deluge. Hurricanes devastate coastal areas and once again, all systems of infrastructure they had relied upon for years were gone in a moment.
An inconvenient truth. If you try to prepare for an emergency while it's upon you, you will fail!

If you were placed in a situation where the TV newscasters were warning you to get out of an area or batten down the hatches, would you be prepared? Would you even know how to prepare? If you answered "No" to both those questions, don't worry... you're not alone. According to an article in the December edition of USA Today, "The non-profit Council for Excellence in Government has developed a Public Readiness Index as part of its report, rating people's preparedness on a one-to-10 scale based on answers to 10 questions. The questions range from whether people know about their community's disaster plan and how to find the emergency broadcasting channel on the radio, to whether they've prepared a home disaster kit and established a meeting place for family members.The average score on the index was 3.31. And this more than five years after 9/11 and a little more than a year after the devastating hurricanes that wiped out New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.
The thing most dangerous to a nation's citizens doesn't appear to be their government.
It seems to be their complacency.

If you think about it, food and water are vital to our survival. A human being can only live for a few weeks without food and only a few days without water. So why aren't we more concerned with protecting our most basic necessities? In light of the tragic events in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina in the USA, hurricane in Queensland, Tsunami in Japan, quakes in Chile and China and New Zealand, the floods in Queensland, NSW and Victoria, the power outage in New York City that brought the city to a standstill.
