At least keep your shoes by your bed

Labels:

This is from one of my original posts back in April on Prepare to Survive in California; however, it still applies. It has been edited for content.

Have you put any food or water away for at least 3 months? Do you know what that really looks like?
If an earthquake strikes, does your loved ones know what to do if you can not make it home from work for a few days?
Do you keep a small bike or extra walking shoes in your trunk or at work incase your car wont start after an EMP attack? Are you REALLY physically and mentally ready to walk home from work?
Do you have batteries for the kids flashlights? Do they work? Do you have extra?
Do you know what foods your family will eat or not eat during an emergency situation?
Does you family know how to turn off the gas to the house?
Do you have water, a hose, a water pump, and nozzle if you need to put out a fire in or around your house?
Do you have a pair of boots or shoes next to the bed (and a flashlight) if there is another earthquake at night? (You dont want to be stepping on broken glass and mirrors with you bare feet)
Have you run an earthquake drill recently to see how well you family can take care of themselves until you get home?
Do your loved ones have access to pepper spray or a weapon to defend themselves if they have to? Do they know how to use it?
The next time you get low on food in your fridge, (on the weekend) test yourself to see how well you can live by turning off the gas and electric to the house... and take notes. You will be surprised at the results and afterwards, you can go shopping an pick up stuff you REALLY need.

What else do you need to do to help take of your family while you are waiting for FEMA to show up?

The list is great! Right down to that last line about waiting for FEMA to show up. I'm as patriotic as anybody I know, but I don't expect my government to bail me out of anything including disasters. Government should have two jobs: ensure our rights and national defense. The rest is just icing on a very nice cake.
