Preparedness Tip Wednesday: Winter Ready Prepared


ARE YOU WINTER READY PREPARED?


We are heading into colder weather which means the chance of ice storms for us in the DFW area and snow storms for our readers in other states. Winter storms can cause  power outages or for roads to be closed due to the weather,  have do done anything to get you prepared? Have you thought I’ll get ready tomorrow? Today is YOUR tomorrow! Get ready today and save yourself some headaches later!
Maybe you aren’t even sure where to begin or what to do to “Be Ready.” First you need to decide what type of emergency you need to prepare for: hurricane/evacuation, earthquake, snowstorm/ice-storm, windstorm/power outages. Ice storms, windstorms and power outages are the most common in the DFW area. We have had ice storms that have closed schools for a week. Because we don't have the equipment necessary to make our roads safe many people were stuck at home during that time. The stores don't sell ice melt salt and snow shovels are hard to come by as well.
Will you be traveling this winter or most likely at home? Do you have small children or pets to be concerned about? Do you have anyone on special medication that requires electricity or refrigeration? How will you provide the electricity or refrigeration? solar power or back-up generator? Does your neighbor have an alternate heat or power source you can use?
If you were without power for 24 hours, could you “survive” with temps in the 40’s (or lower)? What about 48 hours or more? Do you own a can opener that DOES NOT require electricity? Do you know how to make a simple cook stove from things around your house? Does your gas grill have gas? Does your charcoal grill have charcoal and lighter fluid?
The first thing I would do is take a quick stock of what you DO HAVE and make a shopping list from there.
MUST HAVES:
Photos of entire family together or each family member separately (easier to locate)
Toilet paper, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, baby wipes, feminine products
Baby food, pet food, specialty diet foods
Heat Source and alternative heat source
Foods that can be easily prepared with little or no heat
Cooking Source- gas grill, backyard firepit, fireplace, hobo stove, sun oven or homemade alternatives
Pinned Image
Water- lots and lots of water (buckets filled for your toilets and baths)
Flashlights, batteries, candles, matches, canned heat (Sterno), firestarters
Cotton swabs dipped in wax become instant campfire starters. Lightweight. Great for backpackers.
Layers of clothing, blankets/sleeping bags
Waterproof place for important documents or copies of documents (SS, ID’s, insurance)
Car Chargers for cell phones
Gasoline for your car
FOOD LIST:
Soups-Ramen Noodles, Chunky Campbell’s
Peanut Butter and Crackers
Nuts, Canned Fruit, Fruit Leathers, Dried fruit, Jerky

EMERGENCY KIT IDEAS

There are 24 hr. kits, First Aid Kits, Mini Car Kits, and 72 hr. kits. I found tons on the web and will share some of my favorites that I found and pinned onto pinterest.

10 DAY CAR SURVIVAL KIT
I really like this 10 day survival pack for the car since it is all contained in a hard cased cooler and will fit into most small car trunks with a few blankets or a tent!
A 10-day supply of dehydrated food and drink mixes, medical supplies, and cooking equipment fits easily in a small plastic cooler.
The list of supplies in this emergency kit are very doable if you add a couple of things to your grocery list a week or keep an eye out for sales and coupons. You can substitute similar items from his list and still have a very usable kit in the car.
FAVORITE 24 Hr. KIT

Preparedness Tip Wednesday: Water Storage


How to Store Emergency Drinking Water

Storing emergency water is extremely important. As I've done more research, I decided to put together a new handout to keep in our emergency binder. I'm not an expert, but you may find this information useful. I've written so many times about water on my site, that some of you may be tired of hearing about it. But, you can't live without it. And neither can I.

Hopefully you will find something useful in this post. You can also find information from your local water company, or the link at the end of this post. Much of my information can be found in the FEMA handout.
Emergency Drinking Water.pdf

How Much Water Should I Store? 
• A 2-week supply for each person.
• 1 gallon per person per day, or 14 gallons per person. This is a minimum! Store more for infants, elderly, ill people or people living in hot environments. (I store 4 cases per person in our family for drinking, and additional water in containers for food preparation and hygiene.)
• Plan to use water for drinking, food preparation and hygiene.
• Never ration water. Drink amount needed today, and find more tomorrow.

What Are The Best Water Containers? 
• Commercial bottled water with an expiration date is the best way to store water. (I write the expiration date on the plastic of my cases with a permanent marker. And stack the newest expiration date on the bottom and the oldest on top. Then restack as more is purchased.)
• However, if storing your own, use a food grade container such as a plastic soft drink bottle. Not plastic milk containers. Remember to label the date.
• Or a container similar to this blue 5-gallon stackable container which weighs 40 lbs. when filled.
TheReadyStore.com

• Consider how you will empty and refill your containers.
• (I use other containers for food preparation and hygiene, and bottled water for drinking.)

How Do I Prepare & Fill My Own Containers? 
• Don’t use a container that has held toxic chemicals.
• Clean bottles with dishwashing soap and water. Rinse completely
• Add solution of 1 t. non-scented liquid chlorine bleach to a quart (1/4 gallon) of water. Swish solution in bottle so that it touches all surfaces. After sanitizing bottle, rinse out the sanitizing solution with clean water.
• Fill bottle to top with regular tap water. (If water utility company treats your tap water with chlorine, you do not need to add anything else to the water to keep it clean.) If the water you use comes from a well or water source not treated with chlorine, add two drops of non-scented liquid chlorine bleach to each gallon of water.
• Tightly close container using original cap and being careful not to touch (contaminate) inside of cap with fingers.
• Write date on outside of the container so that you know when you filled it.
• Replace water every six months.

Where Do I Store My Containers?
• Store in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight.
• Best temperature is 59 – 86 degrees (U.S. Pharmecopiea).
• When there are extreme hot and cold temperatures in the winter and summer months, bring water inside.
• Keep water containers away from solvents and gasoline, paint thinners, household cleaners, etc.
• If storing on cement floors, raise containers with 2 x 4’s.
• Store it where you can get to it easily after an earthquake.

Where Are Safe Home Sources of Water? 
• Safe water sources include water in your hot-water tank, pipes, and ice cubes.
• You should not use water from toilet flush tanks or bowls, radiators, waterbeds, or pools/spas.

Where Are Safe Outside Sources of Water? 
• Be sure to treat water according to the instructions in the brochure listed before drinking it.
• Rainwater, streams, rivers, and other moving bodies of water. Ponds and lakes and natural springs
• Avoid water with floating material, an odor, or dark color.
• You should not drink flood water.

How Do I Treat Water? 
BOILING 
• Boiling is the safest method of treating water. In a large pot or kettle, bring water to a rolling boil for 1 full minute, keeping in mind that some water will evaporate. Let the water cool before drinking.
• Boiled water will taste better if you put oxygen back into it by pouring the water back and forth between two clean containers. This will also improve the taste of stored water.
CHLORINATION 
• You can use household liquid bleach to kill microorganisms. Use only regular household liquid bleach that contains 5.25 to 6.0 percent sodium hypochlorite. Do not use scented bleaches, colorsafe bleaches, or bleaches with added cleaners. Because the potency of bleach diminishes with time, use bleach from a newly opened or unopened bottle.
• Add 16 drops (1/8 teaspoon) of bleach per gallon of water, stir and let stand for 30 minutes. The water should have a slight bleach odor. If it doesn’t, then repeat the dosage and let stand another 15 minutes. If it still does not smell of bleach, discard it and find another source of water.
• Other chemicals, such as iodine or water treatment products (sold in camping or surplus stores) that do not contain 5.25 to 6.0 percent sodium hypochlorite as the only active ingredient, are not recommended and should not be used.
DISTILLATION 
• While the two methods described above will kill most microorganisms in water, distillation will remove microorganisms that resist these methods, as well as heavy metals, salts, and most other chemicals.
• Distillation involves boiling water and then collecting the vapor that condenses back to water. The condensed vapor will not include salt or most other impurities.
• To distill, fill a pot halfway with water. Tie a cup to the handle on the pot’s lid so that the cup will hang rightside-up when the lid is upside-down (make sure the cup is not dangling into the water), and boil the water for 20 minutes.
• The water that drips from the lid into the cup is distilled.

Preparedness Tip Wednesday: DIY Crisco Candle

We have roughly 12 hours of natural light from the sun and the rest of the time we simply flip a switch and out pours a flood of artificial light. But what happens when the switch doesn’t work anymore?
Since the advent of electric lights, candles have become more of a decorative item than a tool. But anyone that has ever been caught in a blackout knows the real value of a candle.
You can purchase many “survival candles” that last 12-120 hours, but did you know that you can create a candle that will last for up to 45 days using something that you probably already have in your kitchen?




ITEMS NEEDED
1 Can Crisco (the large cans are the ones that get the 45 day life span)
Image
1-3 Wicks (need to be longer than height of can, cut to match)
Image
INSTRUCTIONS
1)  Open a can of Crisco. The bigger the can, the better.
2) Insert the candle wick into the center of the can of Crisco. If the can has a large diameter, multiple wicks can be inserted. Leave a quarter of an inch of wick showing above the Crisco to make sure the flame is a manageable size.
One of the first things you need to decide is if you want a candle that will burn brighter or one that will last longer. For a longer lasting candle you will use only one wick and for a brighter candle you will use anywhere from 2-4 wicks depending on the size of the container.
Regardless of how many wicks you decide to use or the size of the Crisco tub that you choose, the directions are the same.
3) Even out the top of the Crisco so the candle is smooth.

4) Light the wick and enjoy the candle.
Image

As a caution: the container of the Crisco is made of a paper material and as such may catch on fire if you place the wick too close to the outer edge of the tub.


Believe it or not but the product know today as "Crisco" (the name is derived from "crystallized cottonseed oil") was developed in 1911 by Procter & Gamble to replace the expensive animal fats used back then to make candles! It was the first shortening to be made entirely from vegetable oil. But because electricity soon began to replace candle light and because the product resembled lard, Procter & Gamble started selling it as...food. Tasty huh.

Preparedness Tip Wednesday: Hurricane Sandy and other natural disasters



Due to the current weather situation with Hurricane Sandy we are doing Preparedness Tips Wednesday on Monday...I hope you guys don't mind.

I just talked to family that lives in Pennsylvania. They are suppose to be hit by Hurricane Sandy. They said the stores are all out of food and supplies. They are not allowed to drive anywhere and they know that they will be without power for a minimum of one week but are told to expect 3 weeks. Are you prepared to sustain yourself in the event of an emergency for a long period of time?


Remember that you need electricity to run your refrigerator so all the perishable food items will go bad quickly without the use of your fridge and freezer! How will you cook your food without the use of your oven/stove/microwave? If you have kids or pets you don't want to have an open fire that they can access. A Sun Oven is the perfect way to cook, boil, steam, dry or dehydrate whatever you need!

The Collapse of Civilization: A Doctor’s Thoughts

Source
After reading THIS article I thought it was a very important topic to share with all of our readers who are trying to get prepared in the event of an emergency.

"After gathering food and building a shelter, most people in the preparedness community consider personal and home defense to be the next priority in the event that our civilization collapses. Certainly, defending oneself is important; you will have to be prepared to defend your life, but have you thought about preparing to defend your health?

In a situation where power might be down and normal methods of filtering water and cleaning food for the table don't exist, your health is as much under attack as the survivors in a zombie apocalypse movie! Infectious diseases, such as dysentery, will be rampant in situations where it will be a challenge to maintain sanitary conditions. Simple shores, such as chopping wood, may lead to minor cuts that could get infected and, if left untreated, become life-threatening. In the Civil War, a lot more soldiers died from infectious disease that battlefield wounds.

It's important to know that there are illnesses that will be difficult to treat if modern medical facilities aren't available. It will be hard to do much about those clogged coronary arteries; there won't be cardiac bypasses preformed. However, by eating healthily and exercising, you will give yourself the best chance to avoid or minimize some major medical issues. In a collapse situation, an ounce of prevention is worth, not a pound, but a ton of cure. That goes for dental health, too. 

When I say to obtain medical knowledge, I am also encouraging you to learn about natural remedies and alternative therapies that may have some benefit for your particular medical problem. I cannot vouch for the effectiveness of every claim that one thing or another will cure what ails you; suffice it to say, that our family has an extensive medicinal herb garden and that it might be a good idea for your family to have one, also. Many herbs that have medicinal properties don't need full sun or premium soil; most of them grow like weeds, so a green thumb is not a prerequisite for success."

Almost half of the people that live in American take at least one prescription drug medication for a verity of different reasons. Now imagine what will happen when those drugs are no longer available! Some people could continue on with their day to day lives but for a lot of people this could mean BIG problems! While your first aid kit should cover basic pain relief with aspirin, antihistamine and antacid, keep an emergency supply of perscription medications for each family member (and instructions) in your personalized medicine kit. Remember to update and rotate these medicines as necessary. Also, don't forget inhalers or EpiPens, if needed.

Preparedness Tip Wednesday: Car Kit


Welcome back to Preparedness Tip Wednesday where we share a tip with you to help you get prepared in case of an emergency. For other Preparedness Tips check HERE and HERE.
I found this post on Pinterest and I thought it was important enough to re-post it for all of you to read. 

Everyone knows that having food and water storage is crucial in the event of an emergency, but gas storage is of almost equal importance. I always stress the importance of never letting your gas tank get below the half way mark, it cost the same to fill up the top half of the tank as it does to fill up the bottom half. If you live by that you’ll be grateful that you have that fuel if you need to bug out and gas is hard (or impossible/expensive) to come by.
"Even if you do keep your gas tank full (or near full) at all times, you may need more gas than your tank will hold if you need to get out of Dodge to your designated bug out location or your pre-arranged stay with an out-of-town friend or relative. This is one reason it is so important to have a number of filled gas cans ready to use...
Plastic gas cans or “Jerry Jugs” are readily available, and cost a lot less than metal cans. DO NOT store gasoline in containers that are not intended for that purpose!

5 gallon plastic gas can
Five-gallon cans are recommended. Gasoline weighs a little over 6 lbs at 72 degrees F (slightly more at colder temperatures) so a 5 gallon container will weigh a little over 30 lbs, which is fairly manageable to carry around with you.
How much gas you should keep on hand is largely dependent on how much space you have to store it. There’s only so many cans that you’ll be able to fit in your vehicle along with your other essential items. Store as much as you can, but not to the detriment of food, water and other vital supplies.

Hey looters! Come and get it!
It’s important to note that gas will become a valuable barter item in a post-collapse scenario, but it will also make you a target for thieves and looters. So make sure you keep your gas reserves stowed away out of sight. If your plan is to strap your gas cans to the roof or outside of your vehicle, you might as well put a sign on your car that says “Free Gas”, because that’s ostensibly what you’re doing. If you’re carrying gas in the back of a pickup truck, keep it covered with a tarp, or better still, put a lockable cap/camper shell on the back of your truck to protect your belongings. This won’t completely stop a determined thief from stealing your gear, but it could deter him or delay him long enough for you to do something about it.
Proper gas storage practices are essential for safety as well as keeping your gas stable and viable for a maximum length of time. A properly sealed can that is designed for storing gasoline should not leak vapor, but it’s still recommended that you store gas in a well ventilated area. Keeping the gas can out of the sun and excessive heat will minimize the expansion and contraction of the can. Add a fuel stabilizing product like STA-BIL or PRI-G (PRI-D for diesel) to the gas for long term storage and it will keep the gas fresh for 12 months. Just as with food and water storage, make sure to mark the cans with the storage date (the date that the fuel stabilizer was added). As your gas storage approaches the 12 month mark, pour it into your gas tank and refill the can with fresh gas.
So don’t neglect storing gas in your preparedness plan. Even if nothing disastrous happens, with the way gas prices have been fluctuating over the last year, buying gas while prices are relatively low means you won’t get pinched as hard when that roller coaster peaks again.
As a final note, make sure to check with your local fire department about any fuel storage regulations in your area."

Something a lot of folks forget in the event of a crisis is hygiene will be very important as infections will be easy to come by. Some things frequently left of lists are:Soaps - especially antibacterial body soap, dish soap, and laundry soapToilet paper, Feminine suppliesAntibacterial ointments, antibiotics, hand wipes, and antisepticsTooth brushes and tooth pasteIn particular reading the notes of someone who survived the Katrina hurricane, one of the things he emphasized was having antibacterial hand wipes as running water was not prevalent and being able to clean your hands was important. Something that may be good to have on hand is something like Purell Sanitizing Hand Wipes that can be found in individually wrapped in a 100 count box on Amazon for $1.49 right now.
