Emergency Supplies for Home – Why You Need Emergency Supplies and Tools

Have you ever been in a tornado, hurricane, flood, wildfire or any other type of natural disaster or emergency? If you have, you know the feeling of utter helplessness that pervades you, your friends and neighbors. Some people have an adequate warning period as in Hurricane Katrina. Others have little if any warning as is in the case of a tornado.

Some parts of the country are more well-known for their natural disasters and people have an opportunity to do some emergency preparedness. Tornado alley in North Texas and Oklahoma comes to mind. The Mississippi River basin in the Midwest is an area that seems to get flooded every spring.

First responders and other emergency personnel are overburdened in a time of emergency and cannot always help individual families when they’re more concerned about the bigger picture. The burden of caring for your family in an emergency falls on your shoulders.

Recently the Gulf Coast and the East Coast seem to have been magnets for storms. Super storm Sandy is an excellent example. People knew it was coming. They had days of advance warning and yet literally thousands of people were stuck without electricity, food, water and shelter.

People who have been through natural disasters and various emergencies know full well the value of planning in advance. You cannot cover for every contingency but there are certain things that you can do that will help ensure the personal safety and well-being of you and your family when disaster strikes.

We would highly recommend that you have a good multipurpose flashlight to help when the electricity goes out. One that comes to mind is also a powerful stun device that can provide help as a self-defense tool.

Then there are emergency food supplies that are available for anywhere from a week up to several months. “These ready-made gourmet meals have an incredible shelf life of up to 25 years, thanks to a specialized packaging process of storing them in airtight nitrogen flushed Mylar pouches.”

Food is frequently the biggest issue in an emergency. These food supplies are easily stored for transporting in an emergency.

When you’re in an emergency there is no such thing as good luck. Someone once said that good luck comes to those who prepare for it. You can prepare, to a certain extent, for emergencies. You would be irresponsible if you didn’t.

Prepare an emergency response plan for your family that include emergency supplies and emergency tools.
