Emergency Preparedness Kit

This week, Swine Flu is in the news. It seems like every time we turn around, there is a new reason to "Prepare For The Worst".

Schools are starting to close. They say that it is not unrealistic to expect businesses to close also. They also suggest having a "Emergency Preparedness Kit".

The Government website, Ready.Gov, lists what you should have on hand for a "Basic Emergency Kit". You can find their recommendations here: http://www.ready.gov/america/getakit/ . This kit is a basic three-day kit.

Another Government website, Pandemicflu (maintained by the Department of Health and Human Services), http://www.pandemicflu.gov/plan/individual/checklist.html , recommends a two-week kit.

I've found these kits at Amazon and will share the links with you here.

Basic Kits:




The Ultimate - 4 Persons=3 days; 2 Persons=6 days; 1 Person=12 days includes: Flashlight, Emergency Frequency Radio + Batteries, 4x Emergency Blankets, Candles, First Aid Kit and Utility Knife.


Hope for the best - Prepare for the worst!
