About Us

To be the most dependable and excitingly innovative manufacturer of First Aid and Emergency Survival Kits in all categories of Home, Office, School, Auto, Sporting Goods, Outdoors, Marine and Farm for the purpose of spreading the Good News, supporting ministries and missionaries of all nations, in their calling and election to care for orphans, help the poor, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, encourage, comfort and urge everyone to live lives worthy of God.


What started out as small family-owned business in 1991, Total Resources International (TRI) grew to become one of the leading manufacturers of First Aid Kits and Emergency Preparedness Essentials in the nation. For the past 25 years, we have worked hard to develop, manufacture and distribute premium products and services that provide smart, sensible solutions under the Be Smart Get Prepared brand. By embracing research, trends, practicality, functionality and innovative technology, our products address consumer needs, help secure personal and family safety, and promote overall wellness, which supports a good quality life. Be Smart Get Prepared products hit consumer categories across the board and can be found in Health & Beauty, Outdoors, Auto, Sporting Goods, and Industrial Hardware sections in mass market and specialty retail stores all over the nation.


Located in Walnut, CA, we operate in a 5-building, 7-acre facility with over 120,000 sq ft. With our own in-house Research & Development, Product Development, Marketing, Sales, Purchasing, Production, Shipping/Receiving, Quality Control, Inventory Control and Administration departments, we are able to control our brands and exercise our commitment to excellence in providing outstanding service. Dedicated to quality supply and support, our Management System, with regard to ISO 13485:2016 and 21 CFR Part 820.180 & 820.198, is Certified by UL.


Deeper than who we are and what we do, more importantly is why we do it. In 1995, TRI owners George and Merlyn Rivera established a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization called Vision HimPossible Ministries (VHM) to bring the company’s vision and mission statement to life. VHM supports ministries and missionaries domestically and overseas in the Philippines, India, Asia, South America and Mexico, and actively supports orphanages, establishes community outreach, leadership and livelihood programs, sustains feeding centers, and helps builds churches, learning centers and schools. A portion of all TRI’s after-tax profits supports Vision HimPossible Ministries. For more information or to donate, please visit https://visionhimpossible.org


Family owned and celebrating 25 strong years in providing premium First Aid Kits and Emergency Preparedness solutions that enable communities to “Be Smart, Get Prepared” and reach for a higher standard of safety and security. We care so you can prepare.
