Emergency Preparedness Month

September is Emergency Preparedness Month and according to the CDC, you need to prepare now. Many of us caught on to the bandwagon of stockpiling goods and emergency supplies on a regular basis. However, many who are not well stocked might find themselves in desperation should any type of emergency present itself.

Here in Alabama, we must remain on guard during tornado and hurricane season. My house may be placed far enough inland that a direct hurricane impact to the state might not be as catastrophic as it would be on the Gulf coast, but these storms tend to spawn off enough wind, rain and sporadic tornadoes on occasion that we sometimes are on the front lines as well.

On the CDC's website, you can find many articles on how to prepare for disasters during the calm before the storm in September. They recommend you keep at least 3 days worth of food and water in stock as well as batteries, flashlights, a can opener, etc. We also like to keep things like charcoal and lighter fluid should be be out of gas or power for a few days.

There are several companies who have began businesses based on the idea of emergency preparedness like Wise Food Company. I have used their products and have some of the smaller items in stock now right in my pantry. Right now you can even ask for a free sample to be shipped right to your door.
