Emergency Preparedness- Week 1

With the tsunami and earthquake in Japan, and then the earthquake in New Zealand, I have been thinking about what I would do if something that devastating happened to me and my family . . . and I don’t think that we are quite ready! So, I dug out a paper that received years ago that broke down Emergency Preparedness week by week. It can be overwhelming to do everything at once, so doing just a couple small things a week is perfect. I will post something every Saturday or Sunday . . .So, here is week 1:

1. Obtain a suitable 72-hour kit container (backpack, duffel bag, garbage can with lid). Make sure you have one kit for every member of your family, even children. (If you have a baby/child in diapers, buy an extra pack this week)

    My hubby & I have been reading so many articles & books regarding this very topic so when I stumbled across your post I was really pleased to see someone has taken the time to write the process in stages!

    I will have a good read through your posts over the next few days & start to piece together my UK version of your 72hour kit!

    Thank you so much <3
