Are you Prepared?

Sorry for your losses and speedy recovery physically and emotionally to all the people who have gone through the hurricanes recently.

Think about it.  You might not have been a hurricane victim, but are you prepared if you are ever in an emergency?

Whether it would be due an earthquake, tornado, hurricane, forest fire or flood and you were going to have to evacuate your residence that might not be there when you returned, what would you take?  Seriously think about it.

 

In an emergency, what items would you take?

Are you prepared to sit out anything for any length of time?

Do you have extra canned food?

Do you have a non-electric can opener?

Do you have food that doesn’t need refrigeration or electric or gas cooking?

 

I know I’d grab my purse with IDs and credit cards and if time permitted more important documents from a safe.

I’d also want key electronics:   cell phone, laptop, hard drive and USB sticks that have some data not on the laptop and cords for all of those.

And I’d certainly grab some clothes and jackets as well as water bottles.

Our cars always have flashlights, but that’s as prepared as we are if we weren’t home.

It’s one reason my father taught me from the day I was 16 and drove a car:

  • Never go below ¼ tank of gas
  • Always keep a spare $20 in my wallet in a separate section for emergencies.

You may think it will never happen to you, but you just don’t know.

The Girl Scout and Boy Scout mottos are:     Be Prepared. 

Are you?
