National Preparedness Month is an observance each September to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time.

Water Storage 

  • Vinegar gallon jugs, pop bottles, water filters such as the zero water pitcher and extra filters, water filter tablets, or you can go with something more expensive, but remember you will want to filter sediment, etc., first.

Food Storage

  • Dehydrated meals, freeze-dried meals, canned goods, don’t forget treats.
  • Being prepared with ample food supplies alleviates panic during crises and allows individuals to focus on other critical aspects of their emergency response. 

Medical Preparedness

  • Training, Kits, specialized things related to your personal issue. Have it on your phone and maybe in your wallet.
  • Homesteading and farming are one of the highest rates of injury. The statistic is sobering.  Have kits, plans, and training in place. Tractors, cuts, broken fingers, eye injury, chainsaw, livestock kick, bite, scratch.

Power Backup

  • Have some no-power options for cooking, water, and lighting as well. Generators with extra gas, batteries, etc.
  • Fridge and Freezer Alarms

Livestock Care Plan

  • Huge for those who live near natural disasters but we all should have a plan. Crates, trailers, etc..

Emergency Sanitation

  • Personal sanitation supplies – What supplies do you need to stock to meet basic sanitation needs?
  • Shower/bathe – How will you be able to shower or bathe when the water supply is limited?
  • Disposal of human waste – If sewer systems fail, how will you dispose of human waste without creating a health hazard?
  • Disposal of solid waste – What are you going to do when the garbage man stops taking away your trash each week?

Bug Out Bags

  • These aren’t just for crazy preppers, these come in handy.  A family member goes to the hospital, your home needs to be evacuated, fire.
  • Pre-packed emergency kits designed to sustain individuals or families during evacuations or when on the move during disasters. These bags typically contain essentials such as food, water, first aid supplies, clothing, personal hygiene items, flashlights, and communication devices. Bug Out Bags ensure that people have immediate access to critical items when time is limited or when they cannot rely on their usual living spaces.

Bug Out Locations

  • Predetermined safe locations where individuals or families can retreat to during severe emergencies or when evacuation from their primary residence is necessary. These locations may include secondary homes, community shelters, or designated safe zones. Establishing Bug Out Locations ensures that people have a planned destination to regroup, find safety, and access necessary resources when their regular living area becomes unsafe or uninhabitable.
