Because we never know when an earthquake or other natural disaster or emergency will occur, it's a very good idea to always have a source of emergency lighting at hand.
12-Hour Safety Lightsticks are an instant and dependable source of light when you need them. With a simple bend and shake, they will provide light for up to 12 hours. They're lightweight, non-flammable and non-toxic. Lightsticks are cool to the touch, safer than candles and last longer than flashlight batteries.
They have a lengthy shelf life and can be easily stored in the home, office or car. It's recommended that lightsticks be kept by your bedside, in all rooms of the house, in your desk at your office or school, and basically anywhere you think you will need light should an emergency catch you off guard.
