It’s a new month and we are excited to announce the “Get it Done” Challenge for April. Have you been procrastinating getting your 72 hour kits put together? Do you have kits but haven’t opened them for several years? Would you like to expand on your kits and make them better? Well this month’s challenge is for you!
Having spare clothes for your kids in a 72 hour kit won’t do you any good if they are 4 sizes to small. Having food that is expired and/or inedible won’t keep you alive for very long either. While either of those options is better than not having a kit at all, it’s probably best to update yours! Your April challenge is to do at least one of the following THIS WEEK:
1. Create a 72 hour kit for each member of your family
2. Swap out seasonal or outgrown clothes and replace food items in your 72 hour kits
3. Find a few ways to supplement what you already have in your 72 hour kits
Download our complete Emergency Preparedness Plan for a basic guideline on what you should include in your kits.
Also, our April newsletter contained TONS of tips on how to build, rotate, or expand on your kits. Check out the newsletter at THIS LINK and make sure to subscribe to our BabySteps Checklists if you want to receive all of our newsletters.
