Keeping Several Emergency Preparedness Kits Handy Is Important

emergency blue kitI like to be prepared in case of an emergency or a natural disaster. I like to be able to have the right supplies if something bad should happen and I try hard to be as prepared as possible. I think that everyone should have several kits handy for the different places where they find themselves.

I like to keep an emergency kit in my car, one at home, and one at the office as well. I love to be able to be ready for anything that might happen when I am out and about. You never know when an accident or a natural disaster will happen. I live in an area with the threat of many natural disasters so I need to be prepared.

I have emergency preparedness kits in several different places. What good is having one if you can’t use it when you need it? I know that I will have one within reach most of the time since I do have several of them. Having the right kits to be prepared for emergencies is something that may save my life. I like to have the right kits with me and I know that I can rely on them should something happen.

Having an Earthquake Survival Kit Is Important Around Here

1 earthquake survival kitSometimes all it takes to survive is to be prepared. If you live in an area that’s prone to certain natural disasters, it’s very practical to have a survival kit ready for when the need arises. Because when disaster strikes, it doesn’t wait for you. It just does its thing, and us as human beings have to make quick decisions on what to do in that sort of situation.

For this reason, I’m really glad that drills exist for kids in school. They practice earthquake drills all the time, here, so children know what to do in a disaster. But having an earthquake survival kit along with that knowledge really helps in conjunction. I’m pretty sure the classrooms are equipped with kits, so I’m not concerned about the kids. It’s the adults that need to get kits, since their homes don’t automatically come with one.

While my earthquake survival kit has not yet been used, I’ve only lived here for a few months. I’m still getting settled into the new community. But I’m sure an earthquake will happen sooner or later, and it’ll happen without warning. That’s just how disasters work, and that’s why survival kits are so important to have.

Store Freeze Dried Vegetables Away for Dire Situations

3 freeze dried vegetablesMy mom always told me to eat my vegetables. When I was a kid, I really didn’t care for them. But as I grew older, I started trying them little by little. And now, as an adult, I’m not afraid to say I’m just like my mother. Because now that I have kids of my own, they need to eat their vegetables, too. I turned out okay, at least!

But if an emergency situation comes my way, I still want the option of eating vegetables. I don’t want my kids to not be able to get their daily vegetable intake. So just in case, I have freeze dried vegetables stashed away in a large tub for emergency situations. It has a shelf life of 25 years, so I’ll be able to keep it for a while. It gives me solace to know that it’s there.

So while I may not have enjoyed vegetables as a kid, I now know how important they are to a person’s diet. They really are necessary, so I want my kids to eat them to grow up healthy and strong. That’s why freeze dried vegetables are a good thing to have. They’re there in case I ever need them, but I hope that I’ll never find myself in such a dire situation. Even so, it could happen.

Have Emergency Meals Stashed Away Just in Case

2 emergency mealOne of the most basic needs is having enough food and drinking water. Most of the time, we’re doing just fine with that. But if something happens and we’re put into a dire situation, who knows what could happen. That’s why I have food stored away in case of an emergency. Because if something unfortunate happens, you’ll need to obtain food one way or another. It’s much easier to just have it on hand.

The emergency meals I have really aren’t half bad, either. They’re great for emergency situations, and look pretty appetizing. If I didn’t know it came from a packet or a tub, I’d say it was freshly cooked and prepared in a way it normally could be. They’re great to have stashed away just in case you need them.

All in all, I’m glad I’m prepared for the worst. While I do expect the best out of the future, I know it doesn’t always work out the way I want it to. I’d rather be smart and be ready for anything that comes my way. With emergency meals packed away for a day when I need them, I know I’ll never go hungry even in the direst of situations.
