In the spirit of one item at a time when it comes to refreshing or starting your safety kit, here is the task for this week…
Start your emergency kit. Your kit needs to be stored outside your house and easy to get to. Home Depot is a good source, search under for outdoor storage. So this week get together:
- Water—one gallon per person, per day (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)
- Food—non-perishable, easy-to-prepare items (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)
So that’s two items but if when working on the one it’ll be easy to work on the other at the same time. Be safe! Be prepared!
