Flashlights (not just flashlight) are key components of your preparedness kit. But there are soooooo many kinds of flashlights to choose from. Keep in mind that handheld ones are important, but headlamps are AWESOME!
Headlamps are GREAT flashlights too bec they allow hands-free operation when gathering things to safely evacuate #NatlPrep
Planning with items like this is a great way to bring light to a dark situation. Yes, pun intended. Hands free makes life easier…esp in a disaster.
When writing up your families’ preparedness plan, don’t forget to include flashlights and a rugged headlamp!
Before you hear “I got a headache!!!!!” – everyone should have planned to keep extra medications in their emergency preparedness kit. And I know, you got the case of the MUNDAYS – so for sure we might have a few headaches.So make sure your planning includes extra medications for everyone in your family.
Make a medications list and plan to maintain an extra 3-5 days of your meds in your emergency preparedness kit. #NatlPrep
Never know when you might have to use some meds.

Another great day in Georgia talking about preparedness to various pros.
Special thanks to Glynn County (GA) EMA Director Jay Wiggins for hosting the class…
…and special thanks to Laura Ginn who coordinated efforts on behalf of everyone in City, County, and State of Georgia.
Glad to see so many participants here to learn but more importantly, share information and challenges and success stories they found within their community. Espically when it comes to senior care and supportive care – these issues need to be talked about openly and various members of family and staff need to be aware of challenges they may face when disaster strikes.
Aside from www.ready.gov program – there are a ton of other agencies to follow to ascertain great and trusted information.
