Disaster Preparedness Checklist For Home
In times of disaster like earthquakes, flood, hurricane, tornado or any emergencies that your family could be at risk, your family should be prepared. So here are are the top 4 emergency preparedness checklist that can help you when real life-threatening emergency occurs.
1. First Aid Kit is your top priority
Why is the first aid kit number 0ne? Because injuries to your family and children can’t wait. Food and water can wait, but the pain from injuries cannot. We suggest our “Real” First Aid Kit because it includes, CPR mouth barrier, trauma dressings, sterile burn dressing, sterile water, splint, paramedic scissors and more. In a disaster hospitals are full and ambulances and firefighters are overwhelmed. You must still have the ability to care for your family when no one else can. You must be able to treat life-threatening injuries immediately. This kit will handle CPR, Severe Bleeding, Shock, Burns, and Fractures.
This kit is number two because we take our cars everywhere. So you should always be prepared with Food, Water, First Aid, Warmth, and Flashlight. This kit has it all. Get one for every car in the family.
Following a large-scale disaster such as an earthquake, fires will be numerous and spread quickly. All fires start small. The best defense is an ABC fire extinguisher. You can find them at your local fire extinguisher company or a big box store.
You must have the ability to control your own Gas, Water and Electrical utilities. A Utility Shutoff Wrench gives you the power to turn off Gas Meters and Water Meters. Electricity can easily be managed at the Electrical Panel by simply switching the breakers to the off position. Everyone in the family should know where the gas meter is.
Emergency Preparedness Checklist For Your Family
Be sure to store all important documents like birth certificates, passports, legal papers, insurance policies, etc. as well as cash – in a fire-proof safe or safety deposit box.
As much as possible, all family members should know how to shut off utilities and learn first aid care and CPR.
