Item of the Week

Posted by imawheatwatcher on March 29, 2012

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: Food for 72 hr. kits

This week we are gathering 3 fruit rolls or fruit leather. Real fruit leather is preferable to Fruit Roll-Ups, but either would work.

*Each quantity is for EVERY food kit you are making.

This week we are gathering 2 granola bars for each person you are making a kit for. Buy bars made with whole grains for the most energy. Look for bars with vitamins and protein, but don’t worry if they have a high amount of fat. High fat foods are not going to be a concern in an emergency. One good option is energy bars.

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

This week we are gathering 1 blow whistle with lanyard to hang on the backpack. Make sure it is plastic. If you get a metal one and it happens to get wet it won’t work.

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.
