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
