It’s Never Too Late to Be Prepared For Survival Today

It’s never too late to be prepared for survival today, you just need to get started a little at a time. Sometimes it may seem overwhelming to be prepared for survival, I get it. But I also know life can bring a curveball, so to speak, when we least expect it. I realize we give gifts to our family and friends this time of year, but this year maybe you can throw in just one gift that can help a family survive a disaster, or maybe a job loss, a loss of a loved one, or an unforeseen emergency. We all know someone who can use a little help to be prepared for an unforeseen emergency.

Emergency Car Kits-Are You Prepared For Survival

Today I want to remind everyone to check their emergency car kits one more time before they take that road trip. Well, even if you are just driving across town it’s a good idea to have your emergency car kits looked at least once or twice a year. I  consider myself prepared for most things, but I have been known to let my “rotate the stuff” in those kits slide occasionally. Here’s the deal, if I have Benadryl in the house and my neighbor needs it, I give them the whole bottle. Of course, if I forget to write myself a note to pick up another bottle at the store, then I grab the bottle of Benadryl from the car and bring it into the house.

What Should You Have Ready When The Power Goes Off

Today it’s all about being ready when the power goes off. Yesterday, about 4:20 P.M. our little town in Southern Utah lost power for a few hours. I think it was off about 3-1/2 hours. I was sitting on the couch petting my dog and sipping some limeade, yes it’s full of sugar and tasted fabulous. I heard that sound of a “beep” when the power goes off. You know, at first, you think “is it just my house or is it more widespread.” I looked on my cell phone to check out the Washington City FaceBook page. They mentioned there had been a car accident and a power transmission pole had been hit. The city had a team of people trying to get the power restored as quickly as possible. That’s cool, I was glad it wasn’t a terrorist attack or something that would be longterm.

DIY Portable Emergency Toilets That Are Easy To Make

Today it’s all about emergency toilets. I may have mentioned this before, but every family needs their own emergency toilets. I will not share mine. Nope, nada. So, there you have it. When I teach classes I always mention to those attending that emergency toilets are cheap to make and they better make one because I doubt anyone will share a used toilet with them. Yes, it’s gross to talk about, but we all have to go pee and poo, it’s a fact of life. I love hearing from readers because someone always comes up with a new idea for me. You will see that several of those making comments use kitty litter with theirs, but I also suggest this product: Reliance Bio-Blue
