Include these items in your disaster emergency kit

Posted in Home, Life

Nothing can be done to prevent or control natural disasters and other catastrophes once they happen. What you can control is being ready by thinking ahead - and assembling these items:

  • Three day supply of drinking water
  • First-aid kit
  • Flashlight
  • Fresh batteries
  • Blankets
  • Copies of important family documents (including insurance policies)
  • Extra keys
  • Food that doesn't need cooking
  • Work gloves
  • Clothing
  • List of medications
  • Cash

Also, keep a traditional corded landline telephone available. They work during power outages when cordless phones are useless and cell phones can’t be recharged.
