Project SPLAT for July!

 

 

For the month of July we are recommending alternate

 cooking sources, because gas & electricity may not be

available after a disaster.

 

 

 As an alternative cooking source, you can use your propane camping cook stove, or a gas barbeque grill. Just remember, your equipment is only as good as the fuel available to keep it running. You can even use an outdoor fireplace or fire pit if you happen to have one. Cooking with Dutch ovens on an open fire works well. Be cautious if you plan on using your indoor fireplace. Chimney damage could result in asphyxiation issues with smoke and carbon monoxide, as well as a producing a fire hazard. Also, we need to consider the need to evacuate our homes and to be without our current cooking sources for a month or more.

Relying on your backyard grill may leave you disappointed if it doesn’t survive the disaster, you are out of fuel, or had to evacuate. You will have to decide for your family what you think will work best for you. However, we have found an alternate cooking source that is relatively inexpensive, dependable, lightweight, and burns 50-70% cleaner than open fires; using 40-50% less fuel.

For this month CERT is offering the residents of Millard County the opportunity to purchase a Rocket Stove by StoveTec at a much reduced cost. A Rocket Stove is about the size of a 5 gallon bucket. They can use any burnable fuel source (ie: dry weeds, sticks, dry dung, dry grass, canned fuel, charcoal, coal, etc.). They are highly efficient; Perfect for the person who has to evacuate and live on their own for any period of time.

These are the same stoves being sold in the Earthquake, Hurricane and Tsunami ravaged & impoverished parts of our world.

We will be making an order of 50 Rocket Stoves to get a deal of $48.00 each, which includes shipping & handling.

If you go to the website: www.stovetec.net you can check out the wood-charcoal stove, which sells there for $69.00. Orders need to be placed by July 30th. You may order as many as you want, but they will be on a first come - first served basis. To place an order, and for order confirmation, email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Safe Tip

Keep written records of all furniture, jewelry and electronic products. If possible, keep these records in a safe deposit box, fireproof safe, or other secure place. Take pictures or a video, and keep purchase information and serial numbers if available. These help law enforcement agencies track recovered items.
