In a true TEOTWAWKI situation, a major concern for me and my family is electrical power. This concern isn’t centered on the ability to watch television, listen to music, or even cook food. Those are what I would consider the “perks” of having electricity in such a situation. No…our need is centered on another main fact of our lives…the need for medicinal storage. You see, my wife is type 1 diabetic and requires insulin in order to remain active, healthy, and…well…alive. Insulin is temperature sensitive medication and being unable to store it in ideal conditions puts my wife at a tremendous health risk…one I am not willing to take. We needed a refrigerator and a means to power it…period.
Why is this so important? Here are some facts around insulin storage. It is important to note that these findings are based on my own research and any conclusions you reach should be based on research you have done yourself. Never take someone else’s word for it. Learn the essentials for yourself.
