Set Your Clocks, Check Your Stocks

With constant threats such as pandemic flu and tornadoes, families should always be prepared for the worst possible event.  This includes setting clocks, going through emergency plans with families, and stockpiling emergency supplies. 

 Some emergency supplies can include simple things such as flashlights and batteries, matches, a utility knife, garbage bags, and paper cups and plates along with plastic utensils; however, some things might not seem so obvious, things such as having a 3 day supply of fresh drinking water and a 3 day supply of non-perishable foods. 

First aid items such as bandages and antibacterial ointment are in most purchasable first aid kits, but items such as prescription and non-prescription medications also need to be considered when forming a first aid kit.
