Disaster Unpreparedness May Be Greatest Threat: Pocket-Size Emergency Life-Saver Provides a Solution
10/20/2010

Life Link Safe is the only USB flash drive on the market today that houses vital disaster information web links, an emergency preparedness checklist and anti-intrusion document management software.

Online PR News – 20-October-2010 – – Los Angeles, CA – – It begins with the unexpected emergency, a natural disaster or family tragedy, whatever the cause, any sudden life changing event leaves most people paralyzed, confused and unable to think clearly. And should tragedy fall, most families in this scenario would be emotionally and physically ill-prepared to rummage through folders or search computer files for crucial information.

A 2010 Pew Research Center report found five years after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, a majority of Americans (57%) say that the nation is no better prepared for hurricanes and other natural disasters than it was in 2005.

To mitigate grief associated with any catastrophic event, Life Link International, LLC developed “Life Link Safe” (The SAFE), a military-grade encrypted electronic data organization and document management system designed to help people secure or recover vital information in an instant and when most needed. This turbo- fast system is housed on a thumb-sized, first-tier 2g USB 2.0 flash drive that connects through a USB port to any PC that runs most Microsoft platforms.

“Complacency, crisis desensitization or belief that nothing could ever happen ‘to me’ seems to be key components in the lack of planning for the unknown,” says company spokesperson, Suzi Bruno.

Users simply plug The SAFE into their computer’s USB port and begin uploading invaluable information onto preformatted templates programmed inside the USB pocket safe drive. Should tragedy strike without warning, users will be able to easily access The SAFE’s pages which are categorized based on function (i.e. medical/ financial records, household accounts, insurances and more).

Emergency preparedness kits might provide families the safety items they couldn’t take from their homes, such as water and batteries but during complete destruction of property, will survivors be in the proper mind frame to remember crucial insurance numbers; bank accounts; passwords?

Bruno goes on to say, “I know the feeling of helplessness when faced with a raging wildfire and a mandatory evacuation. The first thing you do is freeze: wondering what to take then scrambling to find insurance numbers, irreplaceable photos and clothes- all within 10-minutes.”

The SAFE is also protected by a leather-bound exterior, so users’ valuable data will still be guarded should it come under physical duress. Weighing less than an ounce, The SAFE is designed to be easily stored or carried making it the lightest, most secured portable file cabinet ever.
