Frugal Emergency Evacuation Kits

The weather this month has really been frightening. We’ve seen earthquakes, tornadoes, and even a Hurricane in the United States alone. When natural disasters like these occur, we need to be ready. We need to have an Emergency Evacuation Kit for our family so we can quickly get the things we need and get to safer ground. Other names for these kits are 3 day kits and 72 hour kits. These kits help us to be prepared for the unexpected. If we don’t take the time to get some stuff together, we may forget to take important things like medicines when we are given a short amount of time to evacuate. You may think this will never happen to you, but these types of storms can come when we least expect. It will give you peace of mind to be prepared.
