Spring is here!

It’s that time again..not only does April showers bring May flowers, but it also brings some pretty severe storms!!  Are you prepared and organized in case of an emergency?  A few ideas to make sure you and your family stay safe this spring season. 

Just like a first aid kit, you should prepare an “Emergency Safety Kit”  with some of the following items.  

1.   Non-perishable food such as canned meats, veggies and fruits, bottled water and dried nuts, fruits and cereals. 

2.  First Aid kit with all the bandages, scissors, gauze, rubbing alcohol, peroxide, ointment and Tylenol/aspirin. 

3.  Bathroom Supplies: medications, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, paper products, etc.

4.  Extra Clothes:  Sweatshirts, pants and socks.

5.  Blankets, pillows and sleeping bags.

6.  Flashlights, batteries, radio, candles, matches, duct tape and rain gear.

7. Items for children and pets, ie: food, toys, diapers, leashes and games such as a deck of cards.

Take the following items and store them in a large clear plastic container, easily accessible in a time of emergency!
