We see it in the news much too often...a family is devastated when Mother Nature strikes...hurricane, tornado, hail, flood etc.   The truth is,  we can't prevent bad weather, but we can prepare ourselves if and when we may need to survive on our own after a disaster.   The answer is simple, and the solution is very inexpensive...build yourselves a DRK...disaster recovery kit!  Here's the basic contents, as recommended by FEMA,  the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

  • Three-day supply of non-perishable food.
  • Three-day supply of water - one gallon of water per person, per day.
  • Portable, battery-powered radio or television and extra batteries.
  • Flashlight and extra batteries.
  • First aid kit and manual.
  • Sanitation and hygiene items (moist towelettes and toilet paper).
  • Matches and waterproof container.
  • Whistle.
  • Extra clothing.
  • Kitchen accessories and cooking utensils, including a can opener.
  • Cash and coins.
  • Special needs items, such as prescription medications, eye glasses, contact lens solutions, and hearing aid batteries.
  • Items for infants, such as formula, diapers, bottles, and pacifiers.
  • Photocopies of credit and ID cards.
    All articles above are intended to help you and your family deal with the aftermath of a disaster.  Note that FEMA recommends you have copies of credit and ID cards.   Good advice;  however,  with a copy of The Legacy Drawer binder in your disaster recover kit,  you and your family will be totally prepared to deal with the follow-up action needed following a disaster of any kind.
