Flashlights and lanterns should always be kept on hand emergencies in case the electricity goes out. They can also save your life as a signal if you get injured by yourself. In the case of an accident or a natural disaster, a flashlight can help you find an exit, another person, or signal for emergency personnel. Head lamp style flashlights, rechargeable flashlights and waterproof flashlights are often used in search and rescue missions, where rescuers may be searching throughout the night and may also be in wet areas. Headlamps keep your hands free on the job. Headlights are used by construction workers, on-the-ground airline workers, and search and rescue personnel. A flashlight should also always be kept in your vehicle, in case of a flat tire or break down in the dark. Flashlights are a handy tool that should also be at the top of the list of camping supplies. A headlamp flashlight when camping can help you accomplish many hands free tasks and find your way to your tent safely. When camping, head lamp flashlights are very popular because they freed the hands for carrying other things, chopping wood, and preparing meals.
Head lamp style flashlights are increasing in popularity because of the freedom they allow. Hand held flashlights are available in many different sizes, from mini to industrial, and in different colors and lamp brightness. Emergency Lighting Centers have a base for recharging that can be centrally located. We also carry lanterns which are nice to have in darker hallways, outdoor venues and when camping. Lanterns provide a constant source of light for many hours. Lanterns operate on either batteries, kerosene, or propane. The biggest advantage of flashlights and lanterns is their portability.
