Emergency Preparedness Checklist

         Over the next few months I am going to focus on emergency preparedness and getting things other than food ready. There are so many things we need to do to be prepared other than having a 72 hour kit and a long term and short term food storage.
         How many of us think about our shelter, how to repair our car if there are not any stores open and available or repair something in our home?
         The following topics will be my focus and if anyone else has tips or ideas to share please do so!

*Food Gathering
*Heat Sources
*Emergency Power Source
*Automotive Maintenance/Minor Repairs
*Large and Small Tools
*Water (potable and non potable)
*Alternate Methods for Washing clothes
*Personal Hygiene/Bathing
*Important Documents/Records
*Scriptures, Books, Journals
*First Aid
*Money/Exchange (Items to barter)
