American Preppers Recognized as a National Security Front Line Resource
PR Log - Oct 19, 2012 - Leon Panetta’s recent announcement about the potential of a “Cyber Pearl Harbor” has alerted Americans from coast to coast to actively participate in our national security by preparing early. By preparing in advance for disaster and terrorist attacks, Preppers reduce the impact of terrorist attacks on U.S. families and infrastructure. An attack on the power grid could plunge millions into darkness causing a host of problems for families across No. America
Sales of the WakaWaka Solar Lamp at Amazon.com and leading prepper sites like Survival-Gear.com have grown dramatically over the past few weeks and show no signs of slowing. Consumers in No. America are taking an active role to ensure their future safety directly reducing the terrorist effect by eliminating the panic and sense of helplessness that such an attack is meant to create.
Steve Thibeault, CEO Survival-gear.com stated, “Preppers are looking for quality gear they can depend on in any emergency. In a power down scenario, having dependable light is critical. The WakaWaka Lamp delivers all night long bright light while powering itself up during the day. Quality is what our customers are used to, and the WakaWaka Lamp is one of those products where you can stop looking once you find it.”
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta made it very clear that there have been successful, debilitating attacks on some of the largest companies in the world. In the future he warns that U.S. infrastructure including water and the power grid are likely targets of Cyber attacks. An attack on the U.S. power grid could result in millions of homes being without power and light for a period of days to many weeks.
“We are excited to see that consumers realize how important it is to prepare now for disasters of any kind including terrorist attacks, stated Eric Clare, GM for Off Grid Solutions U.S. LLC. The sales and associated reviews of the WakaWaka Solar Lamp in the U.S., have exceeded expectations to date. “We knew we had created a Solar Lamp that was the most efficient on the planet but we are extremely gratified by the fact that the public sees the WakaWaka Solar Lamp as a tool to help prepare and protect them and their families when darkness comes. “
