Recently our area has been hit with a lot of really serious storms, including tornadoes. We never had tornadoes when I was younger but something has changed and our area is being hit on a regular basis. Because they are sort of a new phenomena for us,  most people  in my area don’t really know how to prepare for one. I don’t want to be caught off guard if we have any sort of natural disaster and need to fend for ourselves for a few days, so I began gathering items for survival kits .

At first I focused on health, medical, andfirst aid items. You can find fantastic deals for health products online. I gathered general first aid such as hydrogen peroxide, band aids, latex gloves, gauze, pain relievers and medical masks. I also packaged up some rags, matches and trash bags. The next items I am focusing on will be functional things such as a utility knife or Leatherman, plastic sheeting, eating utensils, changes of clothes, blankets, shoes and coats. Then I want to gather enough water to last each person at least 3 days, shelf stable foods such as peanut butter and canned goods, a battery powered radio and enough batteries to last several days. You can purchase Meals Ready to Eat, tents and weather radios, and use coupon codes to get discounts online for many useful products. This is a huge undertaking and you want to buy quality stuff, but not break the bank while doing it.

I don’t want to be caught off guard should a storm or other disaster happen. I need to provide for my family, make sure we are safe and taken care of. I urge you to look into finding a safe area of your home and gathering your survival kits to ensure your family’s safety should disaster strike. Stay Well.
