Best Disaster Survival Kits

by Gardenbella

Are you prepared when it comes to surviving a disaster? Do you have supplies including a medical emergency kit and would you know what to do should you have an emergency?

You never know when a disaster might strike and you will need to evacuate your home or office. Do you have the right supplies available and close by so you can survive until help arrives?

According to statistics, 83 percent of all Americans live in areas vulnerable to natural disasters, but only 16 percent of people say they're prepared," according to Leslie Fastenberg, founder of Ice-Qube Preparedness Solutions. Are you one of the few people who are ready for a disaster, know what you need to do and have a plan?

Being prepared can mean the difference between surviving or not especially if you or a family member is injured. One of the best ways you can be prepared is by having any number of disaster survival kits handy. You should have one in your car's trunk as well as one in the home and one at your work. This is especially true if you live in an area that is vulnerable to earthquakes, tornadoes or flooding.

Buying an already assembled kit is probably the easiest solution for most people. There are a number of different types on the market and you can buy ones for one person or for a family of four. Are you prepared?

Planning for an Emergency

Emergencies and disasters can occur any time without warning. The more you are prepared for them, the better you will be able to act, minimizing panic and confusion when an emergency occurs.

Start by asking these basic questions:

  • How well prepared is your family now?
  • What procedures do you already have in place for an emergency situation?
  • What potential emergency situations could occur?

After a disaster or emergency situation, emergency services (fire, police, and medical) may be disrupted or unavailable for some time. It may be necessary to provide immediate care for an injured person if medical professionals cannot be reached. It is important to have a complete first aid kit and first aid training.
