Gifts of Preparedness

Posted on December 5th, 2014

Feeling stuck when it comes to gift giving ideas this year? Give the gift of preparedness! Emergencies can happen at any moment, and having some simple supplies on hand can go a long way to help protect friends and family members. So once you’ve tackled something they want, why not give them something they need?

Here are ideas for gifts that are both unique and potentially life-saving:

  • Home or work disaster kit items like a first aid kit, bottled water, blankets, flashlights or a pair of “go” shoes
  • Practical items like flashlights and batteries can go in stockings along with the goodies
  • Enrollment in a CPR or first aid class. Visit redcross.org to search for local training courses.
  • NOAA weather radios with extra batteries
  • Car Kits: emergency flares, shovel, ice scrapers, flashlights, fluorescent distress flags, a blanket
  • Battery powered lamps
  • Fire escape ladders
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Smoke/ carbon monoxide detectors
  • Solar-powered cell phone charger
  • Hygiene comfort kit – shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, body wash, wash cloth, etc.
  • A waterproof backpack –filled with duct tape, cereal bars, a whistle, batteries, a rain poncho and work gloves (click for here additional “go bag” ideas
  • For kids, put together books, coloring books, crayons and board games they can keep on hand for power outages.
  • For animal lovers, put together a pet preparedness kit with emergency food and water, bowls, a leash and toys.

Lucky Patcher Apk for Android: In most of the Google Play store games there are locked levels, coins purchases or gems purchases which help a lot to accomplish the objective of the game but then they are available by completing various tasks or previous levels which is sometimes boring in that intense moment.
