Being ready for when disaster strikes doesn’t mean having to build a shelter that could withstand the Apocalypse. It just means using some common sense to insure your and your loved ones’ safety.
Floods, fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, power & water outages – they all happen. You have to be prepared for when they do. Even though I live in an earthquake zone, I kept putting it off. But no more. I visited the eFoodsDirect website and quickly found out that I could get most of my emergency supplies there, from just this one store.
First, I did some research. In a nutshell, here’s what I discovered I needed to do for proper disaster preparation:
Prepare a disaster supplies kit
Develop an evacuation plan
List actions you can take to protect your property
Assemble and secure important documents
So what did I do? Everything on the list. It’s essential that you have at least 3 days worth of food and water on hand at all times. I bought the “2-Week Family Grab and Go” kit just in case and saved a bundle with my discount code. It all looks pretty tasty and includes breakfast, soup, entrees, grains, drinks, and even desserts that will stay good for 15 years. I’m sure my kids getting to eat chocolate pudding will be a great stress-reliever.
They have tons of options when it comes to the amount of food supply you want, everything from a week to a year. Good to know. Besides food, their site also has other items and complete kits that you need to have in an emergency. Trust me, their list is extensive and makes a lot of sense. It had many things on there that I never would have thought of but now can see would be invaluable in an emergency situation.
To tell you the truth, I now feel much better knowing that I’m at least minimally prepared. One less very important thing to worry about because when a natural disaster is imminent, you have to act quickly, so it's important to do everything you can before it strikes.
Don’t wait until you need an emergency kit before realizing you need it. Because then it’s too late, right? Realize you need it now, and get it now. Pretty simple. Hopefully, you never have to use it, but just in case...
