Item of the Week

Posted by imawheatwatcher on November 10, 2011

Every Thursday I will post an “Item of the Week” to assemble our Preparedness kits. Don’t worry if you have just started and we are half way through the list. This will continue on a loop so we will eventually get back to the beginning. Start when you can, do what you can, and we will become prepared.

Right now we are gathering items for: School Student Backpack- Zip Lock Emergency Baggie!

This week we are gathering 1 7X8 size zip lock bag to place emergency items in. I believe  that is a quart size bag.

If you have children in school please, please, PLEASE check with the school and see what their emergency plan is. Some schools have kits for all the students and some don’t. Plus you will want to know what the routine will be to pick up your kids after an emergency or during. For instance, I know this year my daughter’s school is working on kits for the students. I don’t believe they have a plan yet, but I also haven’t dug around to find out.

I will be making one of these kits for my husband. He goes to UVU and it didn’t occur to me that he would need one. I know he has a good car kit but there is a big chance that he won’t be in his car if something happens. And yes he does have an office kit too.

    I’ve made these for my kids too but then found them hidden in their rooms later in the school year (I made them at the beginning of the school year last year) Not very useful there! I’ll try again another time 🙂
