Emergency Preparedness; Evacuation Plans

January 28, 2016 @ 12:34 pm posted by

I live on the Florida West coast and have an area in my home for emergency hurricane supplies.  Most of you the items you mentioned are in my kit with the exception of cash which is an excellant idea and I will now keep $500 in small denominations in my safe labeled “Emergency Cash Only.”  Emergency preparedness planning for your unique situation is like a cheap insurance policy.

Ice storms and emergency preparedness.

@ 2:18 am posted by Sam

After nearly 5 days without power due to the devastating ice storm last winter a simple emergency kit would have make things easier.  Simple things like a flashlight and an emergency crank radio.  I did not have a portable radio but it sure would really have helped us understand what was going on.  You always want to have some drinking water and some food and some simple things that make sense like a first aid kit.  Don’t learn the hard way get some emergency supplies today.

Adequate Emergency Preparation – Medical First Aid Kits

January 26, 2016 @ 5:17 pm posted by

medicalfirstaidkitsemergency-emergencyanddisastersupplies.jpgWhether it’s an earthquake, fire, flood, or other natural disaster, it’s important to be prepared if things go bad.  Keeping extra water, food, and medical supplies on hand is always a good idea.  You should have at least two first aid kits or medical supply boxes.  We suggest one in your car and one in your house at all times.  It’s hard to prepare for a disaster, after all, you can’t know all the minute details until the disaster is upon you.  But it’s a good idea to have your supplies readily accessible and/or even have extra supplies outside your home, like in your car.  You should also set a meeting point with family and friends.

If you prepare for an emergency or disaster beforehand, you will be much calmer and able to address the situation should the unthinkable occur.  Being prepared is not just about having the right planning and supplies, it’s about abstaining from fear.

How to protect your data before an emergency.

January 18, 2016 @ 3:18 pm posted by

Its smart to find ways to protect your data before an emergency.  Its a good idea to have a copy of your important emergency contact information in your emergency kit.

Also, your important pictures , financial information, etc… should be secured as well and be portable and/or secured in a second location.

Below are a few of the most common ways to back up and store your data.

Use a USB flash drive to store your important data.

Put your important dats and pictures on a CD/DVD

Buy an external hard drive and put your data on there.

Use an online backup service.

Update your hand written lists, forms, etc…

Emergency Evacuation – Emergency Lighting

October 5, 2015 @ 9:31 am posted by

The thing we found out when we did a practice complete building evacuate was that we were missing proper traffic control people and tools, both in the building and out in the parking lot.  If it had been dark the sitauation would have been even worse.    People tend to panic in an emergency situation and proper crowd control in the building and in the parking lots is key in a total evacuation situation. 

 Emergency LightEmergency Wand

What we did was to enlist more floor captains and we supplied each floor with emergency wands and lantern flashlights.  The wands work great for directing people and cars and really what you want to get is the biggest flashlight or lanters you can find.    Get your emergency lighting before you need them.

I like the emergency backpack kits the best.  Backpacks make carrying your emergency supplies so easy and it leaves your hands free to do other things. ready to roll emergency kit Like everything else you have to consider your unigue situation and the emergency supplies you need.  A good backpack or emergency bag may work the best for you.

Put your emergency supplies and lists in plastic bags.

June 22, 2015 @ 10:35 am posted by

I would suggest that you keep your emergency lists, plans, backpacks, emergency supplies, and other gear all together and in plastic bags or have the plastic bags readily available.  The idea is to get everything, and I mean everything, basically water proof.

Bucket Emergency Kit

May 7, 2015 @ 3:12 pm posted by

Bucket Emergency KitAn emergency kit in a 5 gallon bucket that can serve as an emergency toilet is a great idea.  We were able to put additional emergency supplies in our bucket and we use a backpack were we could add additional supplies.  The toilet lid keeps everything covered, clean and dry.  The kit is ready to go, portable, and everything is nicely assembled should the need arise to fully evacuate.
