Preparedness ItemsDisaster and emergency kits are tools that are going to help you maximize your comfort level in times of emergency. What are preparedness items? Emergency and disaster preparedness kits contain items like flashlights, candles, first aid, and multi-powered radios. They provide you with light, heat, and communication.
Where do you live? If you live in a large urban environment when a disaster hits your area, there is a greater chance that it will affect you directly because travel ability will be limited. Those who live in rural areas are somewhat sheltered just because of the location. But, that doesn’t mean that you are in the clear. If there is a disaster in a large city, where are those people going to go?
Disaster and emergency preparedness kits contain items ranging from needles and thread to a family first aid kit, from matches to a camp stove. It’s a good idea to keep your car’s gas tank at least half full and keep some basic tools in the trunk.
Prepare your family with items for emergency and disaster preparedness kits including:
- Family First Aid Kits
- Food supplies
- Water purification supplies
- Water storage
- Basic emergency preparedness books
Again, take inventory of what you already have. Disaster and emergency preparedness kits will help you work toward the goal of complete preparedness. Your family needs to have a plan in the event of an emergency.
