Emergency Preparations

 Be Prepared for Emergencies:

Homeland security guidelines for emergency preparedness and those of other agencies often have commonalities.

Being prepared does not have to cost a lot of money and being prepared is using common sense.

So now that the spring is here can the storm season be far behind?  Some of the things you can do that will allow for both homeland security and weather emergencies to be covered include: flashlights, water, canned food, medicines, pet needs, infant needs (DIAPERS!) and elder needs, portable battery operated radio.

There are more things but the idea is to let common sense rule.
