Saved this for a Saturday project:
Today you are going to get out your Emergency kit (or start one) and keep a list of what's in it. You can also put expiration dates so you'll see when it's time to rotate items.
Here's a printable basic list to start out with- customize to your family's needs and preferences:
If you have a 72-hour kit, try to find ways to expand it a few more days (light sticks, food/water). Being as isolated as we are, it would take at least a week before any help could make a plan and reach us.
One more tip for your kit- use all those documents you scanned/copied earlier this week and save them on a USB memory stick. Also take pictures of the contents of your home and save them on there as well. Update every 6 months.
Is there a better list you've used?
What other ways have you gotten your family prepared for an emergency?
