Emergency List

Saturday, August 27, 2011

While I'm not in the hurricane's path there are other things to prepare for. For any emergency:

first aid kit emoticon to include meds emoticon
clean, drinkable water emoticon
food supply emoticon
solar, crank or other flashlights that don't require batteries emoticon
matches in waterproof bags emoticon
food for the animals emoticon
water for sanitary purposes emoticon
paper supplies: plates, eating utensils, cups emoticon
and toilet paper emoticon all in waterproof containers

don't forget animal food/meds emoticon

wood for the woodstove, dry emoticon
generator emoticon

Clothes in waterproof bags (need to work on that one)

What am I forgetting?

    Wave, that's excellent advice. I always fill my bathtub with water, too. I just do. One of those things.

    Oh, I just thought of something else. Bleach for disinfecting things.

    Thanks for your comment!

    Sharp knife and at least a 25 foot rope... I don't know why, just thought I would stick it in there and duct tape. Can do a million and one things with duct tape~~~

    I thought of two more things. Blankets/Coats/Raingear (or is that already 3?) and of course, a working radio to get bulletins.

    I don't use my cell phone except for emergencies, but I imagine it would be a good idea to have charged batteries and backups for them.

    I still feel like I'm missing something important. emoticon
