Ever run out of the house
without your drivers license? Of course this realization doesn’t dawn on you
until you see the flashing lights behind your vehicle. You don’t feel very
prepared to face the consequences.
Unlike speeding down the highway and getting a ticket, flash floods,
hurricanes and earthquakes are not of your doing. However in the same sense you
do need to be prepared to face the consequences. Keep a home survival kit and
emergency blankets in the trunk of your car in case you get caught in an on -
road emergency. Keep enough spending cash handy just in case.
The water that comes from your kitchen tap may not be safe to
drink in an emergency disaster. In most
of our home survival kit packs you’ll find water purification tablets that can
be used to clean contaminated water. Do
you have a home 72 hour kit as well?
Keep a 72 hour kit in a easily accessible place in case of emergency. When some
disasters strike you may have to leave your home/town. A 72 hour kit will be of
most use at that time, having 72 hours worth of supplies in the time of
need. Ever have babysitters over? Be
sure to let them know where the home emergency kit is located. Write down your
emergency phone numbers so that they can keep you informed if any emergency
should arise. Always remember to keep you survival kit, home survival kit,
emergency kit and 72 hour kit all stocked and ready-to-use. Check expiration dates often and replace
necessary items. A home survival kit won’t
be of much use if things are out-of-date or missing. Our home survival kit as
well as all our other survival kits come with the necessities you need to
survive any emergency or disaster.
How to be prepared? That is a
good question. It is a good idea to
learn the steps of preparedness so you can be more self-reliant. Some
keys points of being prepared for an emergency or disaster is:
Having a disaster plan. When you plan a
business trip you feel more prepared for what comes your way. A disaster plan
gives you that same peace of mind because you are prepared even if you don’t
know what may happen.
Ask yourself these questions:
Ÿ Do you and your
loved ones know where you will meet if you get separated?
Ÿ Do you have an emergency buddy system (planning that
all goes as planned.)
Ÿ What do the kids do in case of a fire?
Ÿ Do they know the fire drill for the home?
Ÿ Do you have a home survival kit and 72 hour kit?
Ÿ Do all family members know where they are located?
There are many questions to
ask oneself in preparation for an emergency. Stay informed with your local
weather station. Know what precautions to take on your home. What hazards and
risks is your home vulnerable too? Are
you located in a common flooding area? Be alert to the weather conditions and
surroundings of your home. Better late
then never start preparing now. Having a disaster plan for you and your family
is your responsibility. Being armed with
a disaster plan for your family will insure you that you can make the best out
of any event that comes your way. Write down emergency phone numbers. Practice
your personalized disaster plan with
your family. Keep a written disaster plan in each survival kit. Make sure that every family member knows the
who,what,when,where and why of your disaster plan. Something that is very
necessary to every disaster plan is
having a home survival kit.
What is classified as an
