Preparedness Tip of the Day

September 13th -- Preparing for emergencies needn't be expensive if you're thinking ahead and buying small quantities at a time.  Make a list of some food that:
  • Have a long shelf-life and will not spoil (non-perishable)
  • You and your family like
  • Do not require cooking
  • Can be easily stored
  • Have a low salt content as salty food will make you more thirsty
Keep the list in your purse or wallet and pick up a few items each time you're shopping and/or see a sale until you have built up a well-stocked supply that can sustain each member of your family for at least three days following an emergency.
