52 Weeks to Preparedness Week 18


WEEK #18

Follow this for painless preparedness that will get you going on the path to being ready for catastrophic events and that, at the end of the year, will leave you in the best position to thrive in the event of any emergency.

You can do this! The cost is spread out over a full year, plus you will have a year to work out your storage. Substitute where appropriate depending on personal needs/requirements.

Food Storage  8 cans of soup
Extra Item    2 months of laundry soap

72 Hour Kit    Fire extinguisher, jumper cables, low strap, 1 quart of motor oil, container of HEET (prevents gas line freeze up and removes water from the fuel system year round)

Family Prep    Beware of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.  CO is an odorless, colorless gas that can be deadly in large concentrations or over long periods of time in low concentrations.  It is a product of incomplete combustion. Check the furnace, flue and woodstove chimney regularly.  Be cautious with any open flame heating or cooking devices and never use charcoal indoors.  Install at least one CO detector in your home.
