Are you emergency ready?!

With the impending storm/hurricane looming, we thought we’d point you in the direction of a great DIY Emergency Preparation Kit.  Use this guide to create your own 5 Gallon Emergency Readiness Kit.  It includes general supplies, hygiene supplies and first aid supplies.

What this bucket doesn’t include is food.  Sticking with things in jars/buckets, here’s a guide to create your own Food Supply Kit in a jar.  Have your kids help with this.  This could also be useful in long car rides or for camping!

Finally, we can’t forget about our beloved fur-babies!  Here’s a how-to for creating a Pet First Aid bucket.  We’d include water, food, treats, and doggie poop bags in this bucket to round out their full readiness.

Anything you would add to any of these buckets?  What do you do to prepare for a storm?
