Most people don’t think this could happen to them. But, whether it’s a tornado, structure fire, flood, or getting caught in an ice storm on the road, someday you will need your emergency kit. Over many years, I have personally assisted in putting together thousands of packs of emergency gear that our Kiwanis organization (Texas and Oklahoma District) have delivered to people who lost their homes or were stuck in shelters. I have learned what most people need to have with them in such an emergency. You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars putting an emergency kit together. Most, if not all, of the items can be found in your home or apartment. Take a look at my emergency kit list. Visit my website at www.tincross.com if you need additional items that will make the first 24 to 48 hours easier to manage if you should need to leave your home or find yourself in a shelter for a few days.
Dan Sullivan with www.survivalsullivan.com has added the first article (of hopefully many) to grace the new Tincross Blog section “Great Articles!”. Thank you Dan for your contribution. Check out Dan’s website for great information on survival medicine, urban survival, and survival skills.
I’ve been adding new websites to this section as I read the material they offer. There are hundreds of great websites from users that follow me on Twitter and it takes a while to read through everyone’s website/blog and pick out some to link to here. Being prepared for natural disasters is everyone’s business. But, if you have a friend or family member that is “emergency preparedness” deficient, then visit my website and pick up an emergency kit as a gift. I’ve got many to choose from including kits that are perfect to include inside backpacks, luggage, or just to throw in the car when planning to travel for some distance. After getting caught in that Arkansas ice storm last winter that shut down parts of I-40, I can guarantee that having an emergency kit with you is very important and can be life-saving! Go to www.Tincross.com to see this great gear.
