Emergency Preparedness for Life 101

If you pay attention to the news, you might think the world is ending. Whether it is an eccentric preacher proclaiming the end of the world through biblical calculations or the mysterious end of the Mayan calendar in 2012, it is a good idea to be prepared no matter what you believe.

Not everyone is into the gloom and doom of the “end of days” people, but there are many incidents that will make you wish you were prepared. For example, earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, (really, any natural disaster), terrorist attacks and more. So instead of thinking that you should’ve, could’ve, would’ve, be prepared with these simple tips.

  • Get a 72-hour kit. If there is an earthquake, you might need to get by for a few days without the things you are very accustomed to. Water lines will be damaged, electricity will be shot and you will have to fend for yourself. A 72-hour kit is the best way to get started on your emergency preparedness. Fill it with food for 3 days (not enormous meals, but the necessities), water, first aid kits, a poncho, and some cash.
  • Have a little stock of cash on hand. No, no. I’m not suggesting that you stockpile your life savings in cash under your mattress, but think about this: if the power is out, no one will be accepting credit cards or debit cards. You will need something to bargain with, and that will most likely be cash. Keep a mixture of bills, preferably lower ones, and some coins as well.
  • Water, water, water. The most important thing you can stockpile in your home for emergency preparedness is water. You can go much longer without food than water, and your body needs clean water to function. Get buckets that are easy to fill and keep it a cool, dark place in your home. (Storage rooms in basements work great.) And make sure to cycle the water out regularly. Yes, my friends. Even water can get stale.
  • Invest of some serious survival gear. If you plan on cooking food, you are going to need a way to heat your water. You can get a propane burner that will allow you to heat and cook food for a few days. It is also wise to invest in a water purifying system. If you live next to a natural spring, river or lake, you are in luck. A water purifying system can make that water safe to drink, giving you more options and chance for survival. It might also be wise to invest in a sleeping bag and tent in case you are unable to safely stay in your home.
  • Stock your car. If you spend most of your day away from home at work, there is a good chance that disaster will strike when you are away from all of your emergency supplies. Make sure your car has a mini emergency kit inside with food, water and a first aid kit. Be smart and add a change of clothes in case your suit and tie won’t cut it in a disaster.
