Survival from earthquakes and other natural disasters can depend on your level of preparedness.
Most people are not prepared at all, very few have taken the steps to put together Disaster Survival Kits. These are just some of the key items that need to be in your 72 hour Family Survival Kit and your Emergency Car Survival Kit. We never sell, share or rent your personal information to any third parties under any circumstances. In Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri and Tennessee Tornadoes are rampant and this year’s tornado activity has been extremely high. Even if you live in a particularly disaster-prone place, you probably don't have a disaster kit--most Americans don't. If you do have one, there's still a good chance you might not find it quickly during in an emergency. The Second Aid Kit is about the size of a large dictionary, so in theory, it can stay in your living room rather than getting stuffed in a drawer or thrown in a garage. Inside the kit are the basics necessary to survive comfortably until help arrives a few days after an earthquake or hurricane or tornado: Water, food, first aid supplies, towels to give yourself a makeshift shower, a "toilet kit" that makes a portable toilet, and a book with detailed information on what to do. That's why a new kit from Japanese design firm Nosigner exists to be easily accessible. Just 40 hours after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in 2011, when thousands of people died and hundreds of thousands more were forced from their homes, Tachikawa launched OLIVE, a crowdsourced wiki of instructions and suggestions for dealing with the disaster. For now, the kit is only available in Japan, with Japanese instructions, but the design team hopes to soon make it available in other languages. 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 :)! If someone you gift a kit winds up in an emergency situation, know that your preparedness can help save his or her life or the life of someone else.

So make it a priority to get your family prepared with the  essential resources to survive.
It is generally packed in mylar pouches and the water has been purified and then sterilized.

It's small enough to fit on a bookshelf, and it looks good enough that you'll actually want to keep it there." class="">That's why a new kit from Japanese design firm Nosigner exists to be easily accessible. 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.
Whether you buy one fully made or diy, you should have one on hand for conditions like your mother faces. A lack of medical supplies, emergency food and water, fire extinguishers will mean their disaster will become an even greater catastrophe.
A radio will give you contact with the outside world to determine the extent of your disaster and what steps you may need to take next. While there are many items that are no-brainers, here is a list of items you may not have considered. 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!
This Christmas, I decided to give her the gift of preparedness and make her an emergency car kit. Below, is a great infographic explaining why these items are important and useful to keep in your underground shelter or panic room.
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.
She lives in northern Vermont where snowy winters create dangerous driving conditions and I realized she has very little in her car to help during an emergency.
They glow for 12 hours with no risk of fires like candles and are safe for children to handle and have a 5 year shelf life. Also, check out some of our Pinterest links on a few of preparedness items so you can see how they may look in real life. 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.
You must have trauma dressings, burn dressings, splints and more to make a real difference. American made light sticks perform better have a longer more reliable shelf life and are made from safer chemicals as opposed to Chinese made. 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).
They also don't create an unnatural thirst like crackers, cheese or peanut butter might do. 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)!
