We had no idea the earthquake in Japan would strike when we scheduled to do this post a couple weeks ago. We are very humbled and saddened by the events that are happening over there -and also recently in New Zealand. We send our love and prayers to all those who have been affected by the recent earthquakes and storms.
Having said that – it’s time to get to work everyone. When we first started the blog, we made our Emergency Preparedness plans and lists. We suggested making a grab list of items you want to get, and Emergency Binders where you store all your important documents that you could grab in case of and emergency and go. We made a72-hour food kit whose contents could all fit in a milk jug. The food, along with a list of supplies made up our disaster kits. We have been wanting to improve upon the 72 hour food kit for a long time. Last year we made a file of more ideas for foods, but we want to offer even more ideas for people with different dietary needs, and preferences.
When facing topics like this we know who our best resource is…
We know a lot of you have faced actual emergencies, have been around longer then us, and have great ideas when it comes to 72 hour kits. We are asking you to submit your FOOD CONTENTS LISTS. The more detailed you can be the better!
These are the categories we’re hoping to fill, please indicate which categories your kit falls under. We actually get asked pretty often for adaptations. If you have a category we haven’t thought of – please send along your ideas. We’ll gather all the data and compile it into usable handouts and blog posts for everyone to SHARE!
72 Hour Kit that Requires No Cooking
72 Hour Kit Gluten Free
72 Hour Kit that Requires Little Rotation
72 Hour Kit Healthy Options
72 Hour Kit Kid Friendly
Since we know how easy it is to get distracted and forget to do things we had every intention on doing, we’ll give you a little incentive to share your kit ideas. How about we say to everyone who emails us with a list of what’s in their kits – we enter your name into a drawing to win a 24 single use pack of Insta-Fire. How perfect would Insta-Fire be in a 72 hour kit?!?! Email your list to firstname.lastname@example.org BY MONDAY MARCH 21ST to qualify!
