  • Even if you won’t be affected by this weekend’s nor’easter Nemo, it’s a good idea to build up your knowledge about winter storms.
    This Baby Steps post will help you know where to go to get reliable information on weather patterns, storm updates, and how to prepare.
    Baby Steps 1: Subscribe to our Twitter feed @bepreapred_com. 
    We try to keep our followers updated by retweeting feeds from FEMA, The Weather Channel, NOAA, CNN, and other storm-watch centers. If you don’t have a smartphone you can still get updates on your computer, or other mobile device, as long as you have access to the internet. Click here to get started.
    Baby Step 2: Find out what FEMA region you’re in. Visit FEMA’s website www.fema.gov.
    The FEMA website is full of reliable information. There’s so much information that it’s a little overwhelming at first. You might find it a bit difficult to navigate, but don’t give up. To find out what FEMA region you’re in click here and scroll down to your state. Click on the map of your region and you’ll be taken to specific information about FEMA in your area.
    Baby Step 3: Bookmark these sites for updates
    Here are the websites we use for up-to-date information about predicted and current storms.

    Baby Step 4: Read these informative pieces from our archive

    Baby Step 5: Contact us with any questions you have.

    We’re here to help so do not hesitate to get in touch with us! We’d love to answer your questions, swap ideas, point you to products, and help you prepare in anyway we can. Here’s how to get a hold of us:

    For our readers in Nemo’s path, be safe this weekend!

  • Welcome Survival Mom readers!

    Thank you for your many kind comments! We’re so glad you’ve stopped by our Facebook page and left a little love for us. Keep visiting us there (and here on the blog), because we like to do giveaways of our own.
    If you’re new to the world of Emergency Essentials, this post will give you a quick “tour” of the products, information, and resources we have to offer.

    The Emergency Essentials Website
    We want you to buy stuff not just because it’s good for business, but because we really believe that our job is to help you prepare. That’s how we help make the world a better place.  To help you out we have monthly specials—and between you and me, those deals are pretty good. This November we sold the YETI 1250 Solar Generator Kit (usually $1799.95) for $1399.95. Awesome, right?
    Prep School
    We really believe in preparedness education, so we started Prep School. (No, you don’t have to wear a uniform. You can access it in your pajamas if you want to!). Feel free to download, print, and copy all Emergency Essentials Prep School courses for personal, community, and other non-commercial use. (More modules coming soon!)
    Insight Articles
    Check out our Insight Articles; they are like an online library – actually, more like a treasure trove. They’re the El Dorado  of emergency information. The Insight Articles offer a ton of in-depth information on how to prepare yourself and your family for emergency situations. 

    The Preparedness Pantry Blog
    Our blog (where you are right now) features giveaways, tips, product reviews, recipes, musings, etc.  We also include current events and love to feature guest posts, so keep checking back here—or submit a guest article of your own.
    Our Twitter Feed
    We also tweet (ain’t it sweet?) so check out our feed. Here we feature preparedness tips, sale items, product highlights, etc.
    Our Pinterest Page
    We’ve got lots of great pins on our Pinterest site. We’ve pinned recipes, articles, gift ideas, gardening and storage tips, products, etc.
    Our YouTube Channel
    Our YouTube channel has helpful videos on how to use products. Especially popular are our recipe videos.
    The Be Prepared Forum
    We love to know what YOU think, what works for you, and what kind of products you want to see.
    Big changes are coming for Emergency Essentials. We can’t give you any details now (it may or may not have something to do with how we look), but check back in January. Heck, come visit any time!
    And don’t forget to sign up for our email list and free catalog.
    Happy Prepping!
