Be Prepared!

The two bags containing the emergency kit

(Am I the only one that hears the title of the post as sung by Scar in The Lion King?)

There have been a few severe earthquakes close by (within 500Km for sure) in the last couple of weeks and it gave us the impetus to get off our butts and get ourselves an emergency earthquake kit.

We have just received the kit we ordered. It is a 4 person, 72 hours emergency kit. We bought it from Costco and you can go see the contents of the kit here.

Since the “big one” is due to hit anytime (anytime being anywhere between now and 200 years from now), we had always meant to be prepared and now we are a little bit better prepared than we were before.

The kit also comes with a suggestion sheet which recommends, in part, to make copies of all your valuable documents and save them with your emergency kit.

We certainly feel better about our preparedness now that we have these. We just have to get something prepared for our cats now…

Good night!
