ARE YOU READY FOR AN EARTHQUAKE? IF NOT GET READY NOW!

With the horrible images coming from the devastating earthquake in Mexico filling our screens, we need no more graphic reminder that we could be next. We have prepared a quick rundown of the top items you and your family may need to survive a disaster.

We are using Amazon as the go to site but there are many websites and stores locally that can also help you stock up on the supplies you’ll need to ride out virtually any emergency. Full disclosure; Amazon provides us with an advertising fee for products you may buy from these links. There is no extra cost to you.

WATER

After an earthquake water becomes an immediate need. The 2 basic options are filters and storage. A variety of filters from straws to larger units are available.

Water storage containers can give you more longer term options.

Packaged water is also a great option for needs immediately after a disaster. You should consider these for your cars and offices too.

FOOD

After water, food will quickly become an issue in most disasters. Many long shelf life options exist that you can put away and forget about until you need them.

FIRE EXTINGUISHERS

After an earthquake fire department resources will be stretched thin and the water supply may not be flowing. Having good fire extinguishers is a good idea whether for disaster or everyday use.

NATURAL GAS SHUT OFF TOOL

It’s important to know where your natural gas shut off is and how to turn the gas supply to your home off. A wrench or gas shut off tool will be needed.

LIGHTING

A back up plan to provide lights when the power fails will be crucial to surviving a disaster. While candles can be used, they add fire risk. Good LED lights can provide a safe and somewhat longer term solution.

RADIOS & VARIOUS SUPPLIES

You’ll want to have at least an AM/FM radio to be able to get news, as well as many other items to make survival easier and more comfortable.

This is by no means meant to be an exhaustive list of the things you need. It is meant to get you off to a quick start. It’s impossible to know when an earthquake or other disaster is going to happen. THE TIME TO PREPARE IS NOW!
