Emergency Preparedness

72-Hour_Emergency_Kit.jpgI've been a volunteer on the Mercer Island Emergency Preparedness Team for two years now and I get asked a lot about how to be prepared in case of an emergency.  I would like to share with you how to be safe,  get supplies and have a plan.  I mean think about it for a second. Where do you spend most of your time? At home, at the office and in your car. Who are you responsible for? Yourself, your kids and your animals. So, where do you go from here? The best way to be safe during and emergency is to have prepared your home, family, vehicles and business before anything happens. As our fearless leader has said a hundred times " if the only thing you do is get an emergency kit" you're ahead of the game. So, that being said. GET a KIT for your house, car and work. Make a plan for your family and business. Kits - should contain 7 days worth of food/water for your family/pets. There is a wide variety of kits out there. Personally I like my kit to be travel friendly. (in a backpack) *Note: if you take medication, place 7 days worth in you kits. Put a reminder in your phone or calendar to change it out when needed.  Stay tuned there is more to come.....
