We have slightly modified the Getting Started section of the website to include some general emergency information. If you have already begun the BabySteps, you may have missed this information. Before you really delve into your food storage program you should have an emergency plan in place for your family (including a disaster supplies kit and your 72 hour food kit). We wrote an article to help summarize the types of things you should include in your emergency plan. If you would like a quick summary, you should print out the Emergency Checklist that Julie put together. Just follow through the checklist and by the time you reach the end you should have your emergency plan in place. It is very helpful!
