Preparedness: We now have it.

Back when we lived in San Francisco we had a small collection of items put together as our “just in case/disaster preparedness kit.”  Basically it was a collection of random first aid items, water, a blanket and some water tablets.

One of the recent items on my list of things to do was to revamp the old kit and put together something a bit more extreme, so building off what we had and poking around a few online sites this is what we now have.

  • Batteries 12 AA (8)
  • Bungee cords
  • Candles
  • Canned Water
  • Crank Flashlight
  • Duct tape
  • Dust masks
  • First aid kit
  • Freeze Dried Food
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Lantern
  • Moist towelettes
  • Multitool
  • Neoprene gloves
  • Notebook
  • Plastic sheeting (5mm)
  • Rope
  • Sanitary napkins*
  • Sharpies
  • Soap bar
  • Staple gun and Staples
  • Tarp
  • Toilet paper (3)
  • ToolKit
  • Toothbrushes (2)
  • Toothpaste
  • Trash bags
  • USB power charger
  • Utility knife
  • Water purification tablets
  • Water Space blankets (2)
  • Ziploc bags
  • Zipties
  • Plastic bucket and lid with
  • Bleach
  • Crowbar

Everything is now tucked neatly away in the large Pelican case especially obtained for this (or in the case of the bleach, in the 5 gallon bucket.)  Added bonus: now that this project s complete, the case is now no longer in the foyer but stowed within easy reach.
