LTA and Globehuggers 999

When the queen visited the Wimbledon championships for the first time since her Jubilee in 1977, security was paramount for the organisers of the tournament. That’s why Wimbledon have chose our kitted grab bags to protect the public and players alike. With Israeli bandages as standard, two ways to charge mobile devices without resorting to batteries, and battery free news and light, these bags are ready for any eventuality.

For peace of mind, our kitted and bespoke grab bags can not be beaten. Each one is the product of years spent talking to and listening to our clients whether they be multinationals, military, resilience units or small businesses

The bags feature pull out see-through compartments so that you know where all your kit is and each bag contains a full contents list and map so that even someone using it for the first time can locate whatever they need in an instant. 

Oh, and while we were at the world's premier tennis venue Debi caught up with none other than the World number one, Rafa Nadal! So, guess who Globehuggers Emergency Supplies will be rooting for in this year's final?

Thinking of putting together a disaster pack?

Call us on 0845 388 1938 for advice on what to put in your survival kit or grab bag. We can offer empty survival bags for you to stock or custom made grab bags - its your call.

Business In The Community Awards

Globehuggers Emergency Supplies were the overall winners of the Climate Business Resilience Award at the Business in the Community Awards for Excellence 2012. The awards were sponsored by Sustainability West Midlands in partnership with the Environment Agency and supported by the West Midlands Climate adaption partnership.
Debi and David Massey collected the award from John Barraclough, an associate of Sustainability West Midlands, and Jon Baker from the Environment Agency at the BITC 30th Anniversary Gala Dinner at Warwickshire County Cricket Club. HRH The Prince of Wales, patron of the organisation, recorded a special message for all of the winners. Globehuggers Emergency Supplies won the award for their work following the major flooding in the UK in 2007. The partners carefully researched and brought a new product to market that helps thousands of individuals to adapt to the potential impacts of climate change and extreme weather. Their bespoke range of flood kits and emergency grab bags feature wind up technology and are used by Olympic venues, government, PCT's and blue chip companies.

We are thrilled to have our work recognised with such a prestigious award and would like to thank all of the organisations that made this possible and all of our clients over the last five years for their positive feedback and support! - Debi Massey Sales & Marketing Director.

Ladies Driving Challenge

Amy Youster & Debi Massey, sales and marketing director from Globehuggers Emergency Supplies, completed the Ladies Driving Challenge at the Fire Service Training College in Moreton-in-the-Marsh. During the day they drove everything from fire engines to 40 ton artic lorries and raised over £300 for the Firefighters Charity along the way.

When Debi discovered that her left foot was just for the siren it got pretty noisy!
 The Globehugger girls looking very pleased with themselves after proving that its not just boys who can drive shiny red toys!
 And they didn't just go forward! Here Amy reverses a 40 foot artic lorry and breaks the myth that women can't park.
 Debi particularly liked this model... (spot the traffic cop in the passenger seat!)
 The girls seemed to think that the signs for 70 mph meant they had to drive that fast!
 This American recovery vehicle was a real looker but an absolute monster to drive. Amy & Debi had to virtually leave their seats to press the clutch down!
 Parallel parking will be a breeze after this.
 The instructor said he'd never had a forklift truck tip in 21 years. Amy thought there was always a first time.
We told them to slow down! Here the firefighters demonstrate freeing an injured person from a road traffic accident.
