Nope, Helmets Aren’t Just For Bikers and Darth Vader 

How a helmet can save your life in a disaster

When we think of helmets, a flurry of images rush into our heads - leather-clad motorcyclists, bikers in the Tour de France, brave firefighters and astronauts, or maybe evil, raspy-voiced wielders of the force.

Forget the dark side for now though; let’s talk about the readiness side. You really can’t wield the power of readiness, unless you start using your noggin’ and protecting it too.

For instance, it might seem a little odd at first to think every person in your family should have a floatation device or lifejacket, and then you remember that you’re in an inundation zone for a tsunami on the west coast, a floodplain near a river or lake, or near the ocean in hurricane country on the east coast.

We can take the same common sense approach to the idea of helmets in the face of hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, and earthquakes.


From sea to shining sea, what’s often the one certainty during and after a natural hazard?

That’s right,

DEBRIS

Debris just doesn’t mix well with our beautiful bodies. We’re strong, but when a big ol’ tree branch flies at us or a brick above us crumbles, we might not always win.

For instance, when caught in a nasty twister, many people who lose their lives are unfortunately struck by flying debris—such as roofing shingles, broken glass, doors, or metal rods.

The same is true for the high winds of a hurricane. In the aftermath of an earthquake or a tsunami, things can continue to slide, crumble, and fall too well after the initial damage is done.

So here’s what you can do to increase your chances of winning. Just in case, get a helmet for yourself and for every member of your household. It might feel a little bold, but being ready for anything never gets old.

Here’s a couple kickass helmets that might just save your life:

Folding Helmet

$56.00

This collapsible safety helmet is designed to be space-saving and portable. It folds down to a streamlined shape for storage, but can be expanded out to a concave shape in under a minute. This is done by pulling a cord attached to the back of the helmet, which expands the panels until they provide a solid shield against falling debris.
