With the deep freeze going on east of us, I can’t help but think, “Is my family prepared if this happened here at home?”
Do we have enough food and water? Will we be able to stay warm?
My husband and I could manage, but now we have a 4 yo and a 1 yo to look after, so having enough food, water and warm clothes is essential.
Did you know that you should be prepared for 72 hours? It could take this long for emergency responders to get to you. Follow this link for more information about being prepared.
I am planning on putting together a “tote” chock full of the essentials that we would require to survive for a week in the event of a serious catastrophe.
I’ve poked around the internet and there are kits that you can purchase from companies like: Beesafe Solutions, 72 Hours, Costco, or you could build your own with this list provided by the Canadian Red Cross.
Beesafe Solutions has generously provided an Emergency Kit to give away to one lucky reader. Please enter via the Rafflecopter link below. The giveaway will run January 1st – 7th, 2014.
