A few months ago, I wrote about getting a Disaster Preparedness bag or Evacuation Kit together and have finally finished the project.
Perhaps the Presidential Proclamation will inspire those of us who still lack the basic kit and plan to get ready to respond to an emergency with self reliance.
A grab-and-go kit is also a must, Elsner said, in case people have to leave their homes or are stuck in their vehicles when an emergency occurs.
It's good to involve whoever is going to use the kit, including children, in assembling it. The eBook "The Bug Out Bag List: Survival Gear You Must Have For Emergency Preparedness" provides comprehensive details on a powerful checklist to make sure the entire family has a locked, loaded and life-saving bug-out bag.
Also note that you can print the entire guide in PDF formit's probably a good idea to print off a copy and keep it in your kit, especially the "what to do if" section, which offers helpful (and calming) advice for what to do in the event of an earthquake, flood, terrorist attack, contagious disease outbreak, fire, tsunami, and more.

Also batteries brich22 at earthlink dot net Rebecca LockOctober 1, 2013 - 6:38 pm Our family does already have emergency preparedness kits but my son just started driving so I am working on getting his car ready incase of an emergency. This has been a hot topic of conversation today, so I thought I’d share this disaster preparedness checklist with you (again). Make sure the needs of everyone who would use the kit are covered, including infants, seniors and pets.


Electrical Items According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, a basic survival kit should contain at least three separate electrical items: a flashlight and spare batteries, a battery-operated or crank-operated radio, and a cell phone and charger.
Head over to 72Hours.org and the site will walk you through the process of putting together your 72-hour emergency kit, and spread it around to everyone you know that may be affected by the coming storm or notit never hurts to be prepared. The kit includes mylar-packaged storable recipes that are easily prepared by adding water and heating.

I can even prepare it in a color coded so that I will know what to color I will pick up if I needed something in my kit or survival bag.
That means keeping in contact with someone outside the boundaries of the emergency, making a household plan, making your home safe, and putting together a disaster supply kit. Ask them to think of items that they would like to include in a disaster supplies kit, such as books or games or nonperishable food items, and to help the household remember to keep the kits updated. The whole kit is featherweight, with the saw and its carrying pouch weighing only 6.6 ounces. At least once a year though, I find myself in a situation where I do wish I had a kit all ready to go. The effort is part of JASAs Emergency Preparedness Project, which seeks to bring together Long Island residents of all ages to provide senior center members and homebound elderly with safety kits, practical information and resources in the event of an emergency, the group said in a statement.


But unless you know how to treat certain wounds, no matter what is in your first-aid kit, you're still helpless.
Items for Pets If you have pets, you need to have items in your emergency kit for their survival as well. Put together your emergency supply kit long before a wildfire or other disaster occurs and keep it easily accessible so you can take it with you when you have to evacuate.
The kit which should be kept in the vehicle could include spare glasses, extra medication, food and water, a change of clothes, blankets, flashlight, portable radio and spare batteries, he said. September is National Preparedness Month (sponsored by FEMAs Ready campaign) and when Briggs & Stratton offered to send me some Red Cross Emergency Preparedness kits to use and donate, I knew it would be a great time to share my preparedness tips with you!
You should also pack dust masks, feminine hygiene supplies, needed medications and needed medical equipment in a first-aid kit, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. First Aid and Other Gear In addition to having a basic first aid kid with gauze, ointment, scissors, a fishing kit, a reflective mirror and tweezers, you should be able to recognize the onset of health complications related to cold weather.
Disasters that require quick evacuation leave no time for gathering and packing supplies, which is why Get Out Of Dodge and its additional Workbook include extended practice drills and pre-planning steps.
