Get your family together for a fun night. Whether you hunt for the items in your house or at a store, make it fun! Included in the scavenger hunt are strips of paper you can cut with the name and image of the item – that way young kids can get involved too! Cut up the strips and assign different family members different items. Make it a race and see how quickly and fun getting prepared can be!

When you’re all done make sure you store your kit in a safe place you would have quick access to in times of evacuation. Click on the image to download your scavenger hunt kit today!

Also – don’t forget to fill out your family plan and get your evacuation plan including car kit in order!

    I recentally went out of town, 60 miles, and teriffic storm blew up, knocking out electicity for hours. I was in a motel. the only light I had was a small flashlight, with some light still left. learned my lesson. carry glowsticks, even on short trips. will also invest in small fan that runs on batteries to hold on my face. Lesson learned!!

    This is fun – we did something similar when we checked our kits last fall. (We check them in September and March.) I gave each kid a “let's pretend” assignment and they'd race to bring back the items.

    For example, let's pretend that:
    - The power has gone out and we need a flashlight and glow sticks.
    - We have to evacuate with the pets so get the dog leash and the cat carrier.
    - Somebody hurt their foot and we need a band-aid and Neosporin.
    - We need to listen for storm warnings so get the portable radio and extra batteries.

    They had fun, we laughed, and it was light-hearted, but they also did a great job. After we did this game, I let them go through their 72 hour kits and pick treats that they would like to eat, such as their beef jerky or fruit snacks. (Then I made a note for myself of what I needed to replenish.)

    We will do this again in the spring, and I will also check to see what food items need to be rotated in our kits.

    ok ok I'll get off my tail and start building a 72 hour pack. It is a good idea, just in case.
