Have you looked at your family’s 2014 calendar lately? Severe spring storms and the subsequent start of hurricane season will be here shortly. So now is a great to think about how you’ll manage your loved one’s diabetes during a power outage or evacuation situation.
One product that can help get you and your family safely through such trying times is a FRIO wallet. FRIO wallets currently come in two different sizes. Thesmall FRIO wallets are perfect for short power outages. The large ones, on the other hand, are well suited for extended outages and emergency evacuations.
“What makes reusable FRIO wallets so ideal for such situations?”, you may ask. We’ll tell you. They have the inherent ability to protect and store diabetes supplies at the correct temperature without the benefit of electricity. They are also portable, which makes it easy for diabetics to toss their insulin into an emergency preparedness bag and go at a moment’s notice.
Small FRIO wallets are a mere 5.5 inches wide and 6 inches tall. They also weigh less than 2 ounces. But don’t let those diminutive dimensions throw you off. Each one is made with a 65/35 poly cotton blend, Cambrelle and non-flammable crystals. So you can count on it being tough, effective and efficient. It can hold a sufficient amount of refill cartridges, Innolet Injectors or eye drop containers too.
When you are ready to activate the small FRIO wallet, you’ll need access to cold water, a bowl or sink and a towel. So we’d suggest keeping a few bottles of water into your freezer and tossing a hand towel and collapsible bowl into your emergency bag too.
Once you have those supplies on hand, activating the wallet is easy and typically takes less than 20 minutes. Afterward, it shouldn’t have to be re-activated for roughly 45 hours. Thus, that should give you enough time to get to an area that has electricity or access to more cold water.
