Stock Up on Emergency Supplies

Storms and hurricanes. Tornadoes and thunderstorms. Floods and ManBearPig. Anything can happen these days. If you happen to live where such occurrences are quite common, you just have to be prepared for them. One thing you can do to help you survive disasters is to stock up on emergency supplies. The rule of thumb is to have at least supplies to last you four days. If you happen to have a storm shelter, make sure it’s well stocked. Here’s a checklist to guide you on things to stock up on.
  • Fresh drinking water (at least three gallons per person)
  • Battery operated transistor radio
  • Flashlight
  • Extra batteries
  • First aid kit (here’s how to pack a first aid kit)
  • Canned goods
  • Special food items (e.g. baby formula)
  • A camping stove
  • Can opener
  • Disposable utensils
  • Canned juices (replenishes nutrients and sugars, and hydrates)
  • Large zip top bags/Garbage bags
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Waterproof matches
  • Candles
  • Sleeping bags (or roll-up mattresses with blankets)
As another rule of thumb check your supplies monthly and replace items that can go stale or bad.
