Emergency!! Emergency !! Basic Emergency Kit Items

So this weekend we had a mini Stormaggedon on our hands where people lost there power ( and marbles) for up to 3 days . This should be a huge wake up call that we are in the Danger Zone .. and we aren’t too prepared for what would follow if the big earthquake would hit !

 


So maybe take the time to get a small kit together for you and your family  so you can survive up to 72 hours .  Here is a list of things that you should put in to your Survival kits
