This weekend, take a few minutes and do one of these Prepping Baby Steps—none of them require a big time commitment, and you’ll feel great knowing you’ve done something to prepare for an emergency.
1. Buy and/or fill your water storage containers.
- Remember to buy food-grade water containers.
- Fill them with water that is safe to drink through a food-grade hose or from the tap.
- Store them in a cool area away from sunlight to prevent growth of bacteria.
Put a pair of broken-in, comfortable walking shoes in the trunk of your car in case you experience an emergency on the road and need to walk or hike to get help.
Most of us have extra items around the house that would be very useful in an emergency kit:
- Pain relievers
- Plastic zip-top bags
- Hard candy
- Flashlight + batteries
- Hand Sanitizer
- Energy or meal bars
Let’s hear it… what baby step(s) will you complete this weekend? Let me know in the comments!
