Once you have the essentials covered, add personal hygiene and sanitation items to the kit — large trash bags and cans, toilet paper and household liquid chlorine laundry bleach. As hilarious as it was, I  think it was really smart for my dad to make sure that our house always had an emergency plan and that we always put safety first.
I’m challenging my west coast friends, especially those of you that live along the San Andreas fault to get prepared. Not related to earthquakes but the beginning reminded me of your skirt that had to have the pockets sewn because they were a safety hazard :)! Earthquake Kits - Earthquake Survival KitIt may seem hard to believe that Memphis could be hit by a large magnitude earthquake, but scientists predict that we could have a big one in the next fifty years. See the full-page poster version that appeared in the Winter 2012-2013 print edition of the newspaper.
The California Emergency Management Agency advises that the first 72 hours after a disaster are critical.
Your kit should be easily accessible and have enough supplies for you, your family and pets to survive for at least three days. The American Red Cross advises using 16 drops of bleach per gallon to sterilize any water that’s not bottled.


The American Red Cross distributes an iPhone app called Shelter View, for finding out when and where shelters have been opened in your area during disasters. But there were some qwerks that I’m just curious if any of you experienced growing up.
I thought if I called it sexy I could at least get some of you to read this boring post…lol! Starting a kit can be really daunting at first, but you just have to start somewhere. Electricity, gas and water may be unavailable and first responders will be busy focusing emergency services on the most serious crises.
The California Emergency Management Agency breaks down kits into: essentials, sanitation, safety and comfort, cooking and tools and supplies.
If you already have a kit, go check it out and make sure that everything is in working order and that nothing is expired. If I were in California you might have finally inspired me to put together my earthquake kit! It’s a typical Saturday afternoon and you are doing your chores, all of a sudden you hear someone making a loud alarm sound and yelling  “THIS IS A FIRE DRILL!
There are some great resources out there on how to put a kit together but the truth is that there isn’t a one size fit all kit.


All across the board what seems to be most important is making sure you have nonperishable food and water for at minimum of three days, but if you want to take safety 101 from my dad you should have enough food and water for 30 days. Again, I know that sounds super daunting but this isn’t the time to spend a bunch of money putting together gourmet healthy meals, you will just need sustenance. Or tell me this, did your dad ever interrupt your slumber party to tell your friends that they need to move away from the door because they are a fire hazard. Supposedly you can buy a case of 48 Top Ramen for about 10 bucks at Costco (watch out for the salty packets though, those will just make you thirsty).
I’ll tell you where I was, I was at home with my family with a stock pile that we had built up all year (1999)!
