Emergency Packs Should You Have One For Home Or Office-jessica rabbit

UnCategorized Wherever you live, it’s important to have a 72-hour emergency pack in your home. The kit may become necessary in all kinds of emergency situations, including natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, and tornadoes, as well as chemical and toxic accidents. While there is no need for paranoia, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. In case of an emergency, utilities and services that you take for granted every day, like clean water, natural gas, and electricity, may be contaminated or unavailable. Sometimes roads become impassible, making evacuation not an option. If you are involved in a disaster resulting in structural damage, you may need to stay in a "safe room" until rescuers can pull you out. Whatever the case, if you are trapped somewhere during an emergency, it’s crucial to have on hand the supplies necessary to last 72 hours (and in some cases, up to two weeks) until things return to a normal state. The first thing to remember is that you’ll need sufficient food and water for each member of your family; if you have pets, be sure to remember them too. If there are small children or elderly members in your family, gather any special supplies for them as well. You’ll also need sanitation supplies to avoid illness. If you have no running water, you may not be able to wash anything. Finally, you’ll want to have on hand certain tools and supplies to stay safe from what is happening outside your home. It’s vital that each family member knows where to find the emergency pack, and how to use it in an emergency situation. Make sure everyone works together to create the kit, so that even young children understand how to use it. Make sure to have an escape plan if the roads are passable and evacuation becomes necessary. A well put together emergency pack can be loaded into your vehicle in an instant. But what if you spend as much or more time at the office as at home? Just like it may be difficult to evacuate from your home in an emergency, you could also find yourself stuck at the office and away from your safe room and emergency pack. Make sure to keep your 72-hour survival supplies in a drawer or cabinet at work. If you work in an office with a large number of co-workers, you won’t want to be the only one with extra food and water in an emergency. On the other hand, it’s not necessary for everyone in the office to have their own flashlight and emergency toilet. In the same way that you involved all of your family members in creating your home emergency pack, it’s a good idea to involve your co-workers in creating group kits for the office. To do this, calculate how many people can be sustained with a general kit. Ensure that there are enough supplies for everyone, but don’t waste space or money with redundant supplies. Keep in mind that you want to increase everyone’s chances of emergency survival, since there may not be utilities or a means of escape available. Preparing a 72-hour emergency pack ahead of time can mean the difference between life or death for you, your loved ones, and your co-workers. It’s impossible to know just where you might be when disaster hits. The best course of action is to prepare and plan ahead for wherever you may happen to be. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
