Is your family prepared? Do you have an Emergency Disaster Preparedness Kit? A Family Disaster Plan?
I have been putting off making an emergency disaster preparedness kit for quite some time. But since the recent earthquake and tsunami warning close to our area, it has made it very real so I thought it was about time I organized my emergency kit and preparedness plan.Here is what I include in my Emergency Category in my Household Binder:
- Family Disaster Plan
- Before/During/After Earthquake Information
- Emergency File
- Emergency Disaster Kit Purchase List
- Health - Immunizations, etc.
- CPR Instructions

There are many ways and places you can store your emergency supplies. Some store their supplies in backpacks or even rolling suitcases and store them in a closet close to the front door.
I saw a large storage chest on sale at Walmart in the automotive department (see picture below) and knew it would be perfect for our emergency kit! I have decided to store ours in the garage.
So now that I have the storage chest, what now?? How do I start, what do I store inside?? I had all sorts of questions, which is why I had been putting this off for so long!
