The ePOD is a compact, stylish, pod-like capsule containing various supplies intended to boost the chance of survival and escape during a home emergency situation. These can also be used in vehicles and in the workplace. If also used paired with a dFENCE defibrillator unit, you will have the closest thing to a small-scale universal emergency management system.

The ePOD can be wall mounted, stored on a shelf, or carried in your vehicle. For best results, it's ideal to have multiple ePODs installed at various points around the home, but even starting with only one will make your home a lot safer than if you have no protection at all.
It should be. Fire and medical traumas are the most likely life-threatening situations that can expose your family to danger. It's a sensible precaution to add safety items such as the ePOD from dFENCE that contain essential supplies to help you do a better job of surviving and protecting those you care about.
The ePOD contains essential items such as a survival first aid kit, fire extinguisher, fire blanket, LED torch and storage pouch. You may be wondering just how that storage pouch could be helpful in an emergency and the simple answer is that it can be used to hold all the things that don't come in the ePOD as standard but which might be immensely important to the survival of someone in your own unique household.
We're talking here about things like emergency insulin, antihistamines, EpiPens, heart attack pills, and all the various other medical supplies that not everyone needs but which may be absolutely essential for some people.
One other thing that comes with the ePod is our ePOD app (compatible with Android and iOS devices), which provides free emergency training along with other useful features such as batch messaging of your contacts to alert them by SMS that you're in trouble and need help.
Panic, disorder, and shock are the biggest killers in an emergency. If you can avoid those things, the chance of survival is greatly magnified. The more often you train and practice for an emergency, the more likely it is you'll be able to remain calm and in control. This will definitely make everyone a lot safer because it eliminates the main threats right from the start.
The first obvious step is to make sure everyone knows you have an ePOD, what it's for, and where it's located. Then use the free training provided to learn how to properly use the equipment inside. After that, it's an excellent idea to hold regular practice drills, so everyone knows almost by reflex how to get quickly and safely to the ePOD location.
Part of this practice should also include knowing if it's actually necessary to make it to the ePOD location. You can determine this by making it part of your practice for people to consistently call their name and location as they move through the house to either an exit point of the ePOD location. If everyone is closer to an exit than to the ePOD, it's normally the smartest thing to exit. Just make sure everyone is safe before you do.
If you have any doubts as to the location or safety of anyone, then you will need the items in the ePOD to buy the extra time needed to verify their safety. Then it's just a matter of waiting for help to arrive. If you've set up your ePOD app correctly, they may be just a matter of minutes.
Anyone that believes in home safety has likely experienced that feeling you get when the first aid kit you know you have is nowhere to be found and with each passing second, the person that requires help continues to feel pain. This is a horrible situation, particularly when the injured party is a loved one, and the likely response, once things have settled, is to make a decision to keep your emergency essentials in a dedicated place from now on.
