Every Tuesday, we post specific items you should gather in order to supplement your 72-hour kit, your three-month supply, and your longer term storage. If you are new to our blog, don't worry! You won't be left behind. Just start up where we are and follow along. You will eventually have everything completed. Once the 72-hour kit is complete, we'll be putting together emergency car kits again (week by week). Once those are done, we'll gather the 72-hour kits again. So don't worry, just jump on in and join us where we are today!
This week for your 72-hour kits, add a first aid kit. You can spend as little as $10 on these, or as much as over $120! Shop around and determine what will be best for your family. Some kits are very large, which probably won't be a good option. Also this week, add copies of personal documents to your kits. Wills, copies of birth certificates, current pictures of your family members (to show people if someone gets lost), etc. You should also have copies of insurance cards, and perhaps even copies of patriarchal blessings. Also, it would be a good idea to send copies of these documents to a member of your family in another state/area, just in case you do lose access to everything in your home (fire, flood, earthquake, etc).
How's your three-month supply coming along? Don't forget medications and other OTC medicines that you may use. Also, even if you don't take vitamins now, you might want to store some in case your food storage diet doesn't supply everything you need.
This month for our longer-term storage, we're gathering BEANS!
