Thursday was our Practical Preparedness class. During the class, we learned how to prepare for emergencies by creating an emergency kit, perfectly tailored to fit your needs.
First, we read a story about someone who barely escaped a dangerous situation and wished he had been better prepared. Click HERE to read his story.
Next, we learned about the Rules of 3's and how knowing this rule can help us better prepare.
Then, we discussed several items to consider adding to an emergency kit.
Communication & Emergency Contact Information
Water & Emergency Sanitation
Heat & Light
Food & Cooking
Clothing & Seasonal Gear
Tools & Repair Kits
Record Keeping & Finance
First Aid & Medical Needs
Babies, Elderly, Special Needs & Pets
Comfort Activites for Kids
At the end of the class, we sampled foods that are great for emergency kits:
Mountain House Freeze-Dried Meals
MREs (Meals Ready to Eat)
Emergency Meal Bars
