Your emergency preparedness.


Is your gas tank full?

Is your pantry stocked?

Do you have bottled water?  Flashlights?  Matches?  Blankets?

Do you have cash in case there is no way to access your money?

Do you have basic knowledge of first aid?

Do you have a place to go if your area is evacuated?

Do you have an exit plan if your car won't start?


"Not a matter of if, but when," they say.  Maybe "they" are blowing smoke.  Or maybe we should be prepared.  Are you?

Most ppl don't have the resources to run out and buy extras such a food stocks, and full tanks of gas or have backup plans, we have no choice to take it day by day not necessarily that we dgaf

Dh and I are hard core prepers!

We have home canned food, water, and supplies that will last our family of 10 for about 6 months! We have livestock, seeds, and a permanent water source! We also have plenty of guns and ammunition!

We are prepared with food and gas always, and I'm a money-hider. Depending on the emergency, we are prepared. If our house were to flood...that would be a different story.

My dh got into prepping a few years back, and now I think we could probably go about 60 days or so with the food and water we have on hand. Always have had a secret stash of money.. You never know when you need bail money.
He even bought me a camping toilet so I don't have to shit in the woods. How nice huh lol

Is your gas tank full? No

Is your pantry stocked? We don't have a pantry. We live in a tiny apartment that was built in the 70's so we only have enough room to buy enough food to last us 2 weeks. On the plus side, all our food is easily prepared in emergencies so we would have 2 weeks of food to eat.

Do you have bottled water? No

Flashlights? No

Matches? No, but lighters

Blankets? Yes

Do you have cash in case there is no way to access your money? Nope

Do you have basic knowledge of first aid? Yes

Do you have a place to go if your area is evacuated? Yes but I doubt our area would be evacuated.

Do you have an exit plan if your car won't start? Why wouldn't my car start? It starts every other day, I don't see why it wouldn't now.
