Last Saturday, after writing my first article on disaster preparedness, I was walking to get a tea with Hudson.
Just 3 houses up from us, across the street, there were about 20 people outside under a pop-up tent. It turns out, they were the neighborhood CERT team (Community Emergency Response Team) and the city of Berkeley was running a full 6.9 earthquake simulation.
I went and got Ann and we spent most of the morning running drills, asking questions and meeting our neighbors. Luckily, in our drill, the batteries were charged and I was able to get them to work with the other radios, but it was a pretty powerful lesson that taught me I should do a dry run with just about everything and make sure I know where everything is and if it works. First things first, with water, we have 5 gallon water jugs that we keep in various stages of filled. Here are some additional things we have that are related to water — and most importantly clean water. Katadyn Hiker Pro Microfilter Water Filter — I bought a pump water filter so I can gather standing water to then disinfect. Katadyn Gravity Water Filter — This filter can clean a lot more water than the pump filter, you just need a bucket to collect and pour it into the top.
WaterBOB Bathtub Water Storage Container — This item is great for emergencies that you know are coming. 5 Gallon Collapsible Water Container — This container could be used for a variety of reasons. Iodine Water Treatment Tablets — You never know if your water contains harmful bacteria. Water Bottle S-Hook — Use these to hang the bottle off of your bugout bag or belt buckle for hands free travel or search and rescue. 40 Days of Organic Food — I purchased this pre-assembled kit that contains grains, beans, rice and other food goodies. These two items should be sufficient for the three of us for at least 40 days, maybe more, but in case it’s not, here are two auxiliary plans. First, we have a garden, so this will provide us with some food as long as we can keep it watered. Here’s a collection of what we have at the house or what we have gathered in case we have to go somewhere else. Coleman 1-Burner Stove — Now that we have a larger grill, this is a secondary burner, or something we can take on the go.
Waterproof Storm Matches — If you need to light your stove or grill or start a fire in the rain, these are great to have. Wood Chip Fire Starters — If you need something to help start that fire with the fire starter, these will do.
Magnesium Fire Starter — Finally, if for some reason you lose a fire starter or need two or you are better at using one or another, you have this one to go with.
After moving into a bigger place and getting a new grill, we definitely now have more room for an extra large propane tank and additional portable ones. This category is to cover some things that aren’t completely medical, but are helpful in some more acute emergency situations.
Various Supplements — Because of the nature of our work, we always have a ton of supplements in the house.
Colloidal Silver Liquid — This is anti-bacterial and can be used for internal or external infection. All additional medical supplies come later in my series here, but these can be used for acute medical reasons.
On top of that, participating in the CERT exercise made me feel better about our situation, since it seems like everyone has at least water and ways to cook and prepare food.
In an emergency situation, I can imagine our neighborhood banding together, not fragmenting, which assures me that we’ll likely be able to share resources.

I have several buckets of emergency food from Costco, a lot of it is not gluten free which I need to be but I figure it’s important to have a lot of food to give away to those less prepared. I also have a limited supply of #10 cans with: freeze dried fruit, quinoa a few other things. I think I need more #10 cans of raw related grains and sprouting seeds as well as sprouting flats and maybe some bags of soil. I don’t want to be a total nut case but then again, I have always been the type of person to be prepared. I have a gas burner thing in back, haven’t bought the portable tank for it yet cuz i wanted to hook it up to my big propane tank i have for heat and cooking.

I have my eye on a bucket with a filter on top that will filter any kind of water (no matter how gross) I think 900 times.
