Starting out the third week in the 2014 National Preparedness Month.
“Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare”
Monday morning with the most important stuff!
This week’s theme is consistent with FEMA’s National Preparedness Campaign: Build an Emergency Kit
#15: Your essential emergency preparedness kit should include flashlights & a cell phone charger #NatlPrep #Prepared2014
Today’s tip is an easy one – flashlights and phone charger. It takes 10 seconds to include them in your emergency preparedness kit. Do it now.
Also-it seems like we lose power so frequently…so don’t be left in the dark (see what I did there?).
Candles are dumb because you stand the possibility of burning your house down and killing your family. During an emergency, gas leaks are common. Obviously. Candles and a gas leak is a recipe for explosion. #Kaboom Soooooooooo DO NOT USE CANDLES.
Maslow’s hierarchy of needs have grown and now the base layer includes WiFi and phone power. Consider having a charging cable that has the ability to plug into a wall receptacle/plug or a USB charging point.
