LED lights reduce your energy footprint. Using specialized diodes, LEDs project light in a particular direction. Without the need for reflectors, LEDs are more efficient and cost-effective.
But LEDs can do a lot more than sit in a lamp. LEDs can keep you and your family safe. Here are five instances when you may need an LED emergency light.
1. Active Shooters
Active shooter situations can occur anywhere. If you are caught in the middle of one, run away from the scene. If that's not possible, hide and be prepared to fight back.
An LED emergency light can illuminate your path out of a building. Even a small light provides enough illumination for a doorway.
You can purchase a diode that points light directly down. This lets you see a path out without illuminating yourself. You can remain hidden from the shooter as you make your exit.
Earthquakes are massive disasters. They can spark tsunamis, floods, and landslides. They can topple homes and throw objects down on people.
An LED emergency light protects you if you are pinned down. Purchase a durable light, one with a cage that protects the bulb from shattering. If you are pinned under rubble, the light will allow first responders to find you.
Earthquakes do not happen every day, but don't let your guard down. Test out your batteries on a regular basis, and practice emergency drills.
Hurricanes can last for days, causing floods and high winds that can destroy cars and buildings. Even a Category 1 hurricane can cause a power outage.
LED emergency lanterns are a terrific alternative to installed lights. They are lightweight but durable. Place an emergency lantern in the main rooms of your house and in your car.
Supply extra batteries and bulbs in case they run out. You may be without power for a long time, and you need to have lights to navigate safely.
Snowstorms can drop more than a foot of snow, with high winds that knock down power lines. Noreasters can sit in place for hours, preventing first responders from coming to the scene.
Prepare against power outages with LED lanterns. Install LED lights throughout your home to conserve power if the power system becomes overwhelmed.
If a wildfire approaches your home, you will have to evacuate quickly. Incandescent lights are bulky, and they can spark a fire if knocked over.
LED lights have a much lower risk of fanning the flames. You can carry them in and out of your house, illuminating your path away from the fire.
If you are in a high-risk area for fires, create a 30-foot fire-resistant zone around your house. Use lights that project 30 feet to mark the zone.
