Do you want to know how to be prepared for any emergency or disaster? I have been reading the newspaper, hearing the news on the TV and radio about Syria. My heart is telling me to get the word out to remind people to be prepared for the unexpected disaster or emergency. This can be unemployment, medical issues, or right now it could be something even worse……

It’s hard to know where to start and a tight budget can make it even harder, but doing something is better than doing nothing.

Please get some water stored. TODAY! Please encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to do the same. Trust me, you will be glad you did. Please encourage the members of your faith to do something to be prepared for the unexpected. This message is from my heart to your heart……

How To Be Prepared For Any Emergency Or Disaster

Having emergency/food and water storage can give you peace of mind, so you can start by:

  • Buying one can at a time (if you had purchased $5-$20 worth of supplies every month last year, you would be farther ahead than you are right now.
  • Buy a large backpack for a 72-hour kit; fill it with one or two items at a time. If you can’t afford a backpack start using a box, or bag. Just get something and start working on those kits.
  • Buy an extra item or two when you shop.
  • Buy in bulk with other families/friends and split costs.
  • Buy it all at once if you can afford to.
  • Store what you eat and eat what you store.
  • Buy a variety of canned fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy, and proteins.  Make sure you are rotating them, and check expiration dates.  Canned goods are usually only good for one to two years.
  • Don’t forget non-food items such as Toothpaste, Toilet Paper, Tooth Brushes, Dish Soap, Shampoo, etc.
  • Rotate and replace—use some of your items at least twice a week and replace those items.
  • Grow a garden or join a produce co-op.

These are just simple ideas to get started to be prepared for the unexpected.

    canned food will be good for many years not just a couple as you stated. Home canned foods can be good for 25 years. Quality may diminish but at least it is edible and as long as food in metal cans is kept stored in the right conditions are concerned it will last a long time

      Hi, Lois, isn’t it funny years ago, there were no expiration dates on cans. We ate them if they were on the shelf, who knows how old they were. Linda

    Further thought. IF we are hit by an EMP our electric grid will be fried, Check out the site BLACKOUTUSA,COM. this is very serious ,Folks. Read and heed. . an EMP can be from an enemy exploding a bomb 20 miles up in the atmosphere, OR from the son. It has happened in the past. Or from terrorist attacks on our power grid This could send us back to the cave man days of living. Also see SURVIVOPEDIA.COM and find many more sites to visit. Good luck one and all

      Hi Lois, have you read “Lights out” by Ted Koppel. He interviewed people who had or were currently working for our government and pretty much we are so unprepared we will not be able to rebuild our electrical system for 20+ years if we are hit with an EMP. I wish they would pay the people less money and put into our infrastructure. Good luck to all, is so right! Linda
