If you’re a Type A Personality and need to have your list all checked off this blog’s for you. Ready.gov provides a handy little checklist of recommended items (hand crank radio, flashlight, batteries) to include in a basic emergency supply kit and additional items (sleeping bag, paper products, personal hygiene items) to consider adding to an emergency supply kit. You probably already have your basic needs set (water, food, first aid kit, dust mask) in case of an emergency along with the extras (moist towelettes, whistle, can opener) but this checklist will confirm you are as prepared as can be. It may even give you a few ideas to help you pass time before help arrives.
If you’re a Type B Personality and want to be prepared but are not so much into the checklist thing you are in luck. There are plenty of stocked first aid kits tailored to specific emergency situations. Anything from disaster first aid kits to earthquake first aid kits to plain old fashioned emergency preparedness kits. You can prepare you and your loved ones and just get yourself a grab ‘n go first aid kit. No stocking on your behalf needed.
