Make An Emergency Preparedness Kit For Your Home

If you live in an area that has hurricanes, earthquakes, big snowstorms or tornadoes; you should be prepared to take care of your family by putting aside supplies to keep you going. You do not want to wait for FEMA to show up and take care of you, take your own responsibility to do so and you will be much happier.

With hurricanes you could be without power for days or weeks. We live in a hurricane zone and got hit with two storms within a couple weeks of each other. Our power was out for four weeks total between the two. Fortunately we had enough food stocked up to help and we could buy stuff from a store in another area that had power. Our generator got a good workout during that time keeping the refrigerator going.

If you live were you can expect blizzards or ice storms, I know you could loose your power and be snowed in at the same time. Not only would you need a supply of food and water on hand, you would also need to keep warm. Extra fuel sources for whatever heating methods you use would be a must.

If you live in earthquake areas and you put away emergency supplies in your home. What do you do if you have an earthquake big enough to cause your home to collapse, hopefully when no one is in it? How could you get to your supplies buried in the rubble? Would you have an alternate locating to store extra items to get you by in this situation? Just something to consider as you do your planning.

Do your planning now so you are prepared for the possibility of an emergency. You do not want something to happen, but you will have peace of mind that you are prepared.
