					How To Your Family In Emergencies

Thought Hurricane season 2005 with Katrina and Rita was bad? Well get ready for 2006 as it will be
equally as bad or worse.

As an emergency preparedness consultant featured on CNN and Fox News, I can assure you that if you
are not prepared you could meet the same fate as hundreds of people did during Katrina. NO scare
tactics just the truth!

First of all you need to have a water supply on hand for at least one week for each member of the
family. We suggest one gallon per day per family member as the MINIMUM! Sure the people in New
Orleans were surrounded by water but it was totally unfit to drink.

Next you need a supply of food that can be protected from rising water. You need to put it in LARGE
plastic waterproof containers. You should have food for at least a week in the form of MREs and
typical staples like peanut butter, jelly, honey, crackers, and can goods of baked beans, vegetables,
soups, Spam, tuna, sardines, Vienna sausages, salmon, chicken, etc. Don't wait until the hurricane is
upon you to get these items!

Next you need for EVERY member of the family to have a Preparedness Travel Backpack with:
clothes, a pair of sneakers, socks, underwear, a protective hat/cap, good quality poncho, an individual
NASA blanket and or sleeping bag (these are folded so tight in their packages that you can easily get
them in the backpack)and most importantly ID packets as described in my FR** Emergency
Preparedness Guide at

You will need a well equipped first aid kit that also can be kept in one of the backpacks along with an
emergency radio that can be manually wound up. Put in a LARGE supply of matches that have been
waterproofed. SEVERAL flashlights that feature the new LED lights that can be either shaken or
wound up. Also make sure to have a supply of FRESH batteries of every size that you will be needing
NOW not later!

If you are traveling by vehicle, that vehicle should have FDA approved plastic containers for your
drinking water and several other ones for your vehicle to keep it from overheating. You need GOOD
quality plastic 5 gallon GAS containers filled up NOW. Keep a supply of oil and transmission fluid in
the car along with several cans of those tire inflating aerosols. If you don't have a high quality tool kit
for your vehicle get one NOW! Also have some form of emergency flashers available.

Also make sure and have a family tent in the vehicle. How many people did you see during Hurricane
Katrina that had to wait for FEMA to provide tents?

Certainly you have fire extinguishers at home. Well do you also have one for each vehicle? If not, get
then NOW!

You are going to need to have your food supplies mentioned above in BIG plastic containers that can
be moved to the vehicle without taking the time to stock it up. Do that NOW!
