Are you and your family prepared in case of an emergency? A couple of power bars and a flashlight aren’t going to cut it – it’s time to stock your family with a fully supplied emergency kit. Having a well-rounded safety kit is important to keep you prepared in case of power outage or natural disaster.
Top tips for creating your own kit:
-Water (Recommended 1 Gal per person, 3 day supply)
-Food + manual can opener
-Battery powered radio and extra batteries
-First aid kit
-Hand sanitizer or moist towelettes
-Medicine / prescriptions
-Blanket or sleeping bag
-Paper and pencil
-> Use an old backpack & make a ready-to-go pack!
