Last week for our 5th year Blogging Anniversary we introduced our brand new Emergency Preparedness Plan.
There’s still room for you to fill in emergency contact info and other important components of your family plan.
We continue to talk about the necessities needed to keep your car stocked and having a game plan for things you would grab in case of an evacuation. We included tips and facts throughout the whole plan to help you in your planning and purchasing processes. Instead of giving you just the one menu plan for the food in your 72 hour kits, we included several lists of menus depending on varying diets. After finishing the new plan, we decided to give it a test and printed it out before going through our 72 hour kits that needed rotating. GRAB LIST(S): Instead of having just one grab list (things you would grab if you have to evacuate) have multiple lists- one for each family member. And now, I’ll leave you with a picture of part of my kits sprawled out all over my family room floor.
Now a days everyone or every family has to be prepared on everything especially during calamities. Regarding rotation, some LDS (Mormon) families choose to rotate their kits on the same weekends as the Church’s semi-annual General Conference. In a short-term emergency, you are likely to seek services to meet the child’s immediate needs, such as medical, food, shelter, and so the information should be geared to that purpose. In a longer emergency you may be seeking out less basic services for your kids, such as speech therapy, or enrolling them in a new school.
Every family needs an emergency preparedness plan, even though we hope you never need them!


We encourage you to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in your home, business, and communities. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, which caused billions of dollars in destruction to the New York City and coastal New Jersey areas, it’s a good time to think about how prepared your home and family might be for a similar disaster. The single most important step to prepare for a disaster is to create a plan that addresses how you will deal with various situations, along with the special needs of your family members.
When an emergency hits, there are certain items that you’ll need to safely hunker down in your home, evacuate or find your way to safety.
Whether you just need an extra pair of prescription glasses or you’re on a ventilator, medical needs are one of the most important things to consider when preparing for an emergency. A solar or hand-crank gadget charger may not be ideal for charging your cell phone on a daily basis, but in the emergency, it could be the only thing keeping you connected to the outside world. Don’t forget about the furry members of your family when preparing for an emergency situation. Of course, you can’t plan ahead for every disaster, and as in the case of Hurricane Sandy, sometimes events that seem unlikely really do occur. If a hazardous substance emergency could occur at your facility and you plan to have any of your employees participate in the emergency response, you are required to have an Emergency Response Plan in writing and available for inspection consistent with 29 CFR 1910.120(q) (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response). The plan flowed very well, and we’re confident it will help you rethink (or start) your plan. Store all the stuff you would need in colder weather in a separate bag or container that you would grab and go in case of emergency during the winter. Knowing what to do in case of an emergency is your best protection and your responsibility. We’ve found 4 that will help you organize everything from your emergency contact information, insurance information and evacuation plan.


Your plan should lay out the ways in which your family will communicate with each other in the event of an emergency, the best ways to escape from your home, and how to shut off your utilities like natural gas and electricity. Not only is it smart to have backups for emergency situations or loss of power, but also in the event of a financial setback. Your disaster plan should include considerations for how your family will meet up in case you aren’t together when it happens. If you’re in the habit of doing this all the time it could really save you in a REAL emergency (like those don’t happen daily with babies on the go). We have to do it ourselves so that when emergency comes an earthquake, or a typhoon for example we are already prepared.
Some families who have more extensive food supplies in their kits might even go so far as to actually eat *only* the foods in their kits that weekend. I keep this info on a single sheet of paper for each family member and basically it is the page I grab when heading to the emergency department with one of the kids (which btw forces me to keep it current). Committed to providing you and your family with the best survival knowledge, skills and equipment. The Humane Society of the United States and the ASPCA both offer tips for pets including getting a rescue alert sticker for your window, arranging a safe haven and packing an emergency kit.
I think the best way to handle this is to scan the documents in to the computer (be sure to keep them clearly labeled), then transfer them to a CD or flash drive that could be easily stored in the emergency binder.
