This September is National Preparedness Month (NPM). LoopRope LLC has committed to participate in National Preparedness to increase preparedness throughout the U.S. The event, now in its ninth year, is a nationwide, month-long effort hosted by the Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps, encouraging households, businesses and communities to prepare and plan for emergencies. Globally, 32.4 million people were displaced last year due to disasters such as floods, storms and earthquakes—
these atmospheric and weather related events comprise 98% of all disasters displacing events causing people to flee. During 2012 in the U.S., Hurricane Sandy alone displaced 776,000 people, Hurricane Isaac uprooted 60,000 people and forest fires caused 39,000 adults and children to flee their homes.
DISASTER. It strikes anytime, anywhere. It takes many forms -- a hurricane, an earthquake, a tornado, a flood, a fire or a hazardous spill, some are natural and some are man-made. During any emergency, the time you may have will be limited.
“Every year, millions of Americans face disaster, and are asked to evacuate without delay. The last thing they need, is to use tie downs that break like bungee cords,” states Jeff Dahl, inventor and founder of LoopRope LLC. “We are proud to participate in efforts for family and community preparedness.”
When disaster strikes and evacuation orders are issued, organization and preparation pay off. Moving quickly with equipment you can count on is vital—enter LoopRope®
– tie downs made easy. No more fussing with knots, bungee cords or useless cargo nets, LoopRope® is a must. LoopRope® is made of one continuous piece of shock cord fastened together to create permanent loops. LoopRope®
