2020 was a standout year for the worst possible reasons, including natural disasters. In 2020, we surpassed 2005's record for tropical storms with 30 confirmed storms with winds over 39 mph and 13 hurricanes with top winds of 74 mph or greater. We also witnessed wildfires that doubled the previous record of approximately 2-million acres of land in 2018.
Larger and more increased storms are producing soaring natural disaster costs. The U.S. alone witnessed 16 natural disasters by September 2020, which brought damages to at least $1 billion – tying the records set in 2011 and 2017. In broader context, the total cost of U.S. billion-dollar disasters over the last 5 years (2016-2020) exceeds $600 billion, with a 5-year annual cost average of $121.3 billion, both of which are new records.

These significant historical events paint a picture of what is possible for 2021 and further. Whether it's a hurricane, wildfire, tornado, or winter blizzard, natural disasters can strike anywhere, and being prepared with the right equipment is essential to saving lives.
Preparedness with higher quality safety tools is a necessity. While buying lower quality may save a few dollars on the front end, those items often end up wearing out or breaking long before their time. A higher quality item often will last longer and save you money in the long run. Your equipment should be long-lasting, impact-resistant, waterproof, fire-resistant, and able to withstand anything Mother Nature throws your way.
