Needs during emergency

December 3, 2017

The recent world is often hit by natural disasters. We just heard about how badly the damage caused by Haiyan cyclone in the Philippines. Then our own homeland was shaken by the explosion of Sinabung and Kelud volcanoes that swallowed some lives and covered the streets and houses with thick ashes. In an emergency situation like this, we should not feel panic if we have made preparations long before. There are several things you need to prepare and teach your family. Disaster does not always come from outside the home, it could happen in your home. One of the preparations you can do is to do the exercises with the whole family. Teach how to use fire extinguishers. This tool should be checked annually by an officer so that when necessary this tool can work properly. Keep listening to the radio, television or the sound of the bell that warns you of dangerous dangers. Prepare your Prepper Readieness bag containing important papers and if possible some valuable items and clothes that can be brought so that any time any announcements to evacuate you are ready.

Ensure that families who are outside the home also hear about warnings of danger. Make contact with the phone or if you need to pick up a child from school. In the family, the meeting does the exercise of natural disasters. Set up meeting places so that when you are separated from other family members you know where you should go looking for them. How long do you have to wait and where you and your family can go if you have to evacuate. There are some things you need to provide at home to deal with emergencies. Not only for threatening dangers but also for the likes of dying lights, shops shut down, street chaos, and so on. Commonly serving at least two years in the kitchen, canned meat provides an important protein. Using a vacuum packaging pouch will provide shorter shelf life but will last at least six months, says Diane Van, USDA manager of meat and poultry. Try to keep at least three water supplies a day – a person needs at least one gallon per person per day. Electrolytes and carbohydrates in these bottles will help when the body loses fluid and returns the lost body fluids once the water is scarce.
