Is Your Family Prepared for an Emergency?

It breaks my heart to see all the news about the massive earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan yesterday, but it also makes me realize that my family and I really aren’t prepared for an emergency.

Don’t get me wrong. Yes, we have first aid kits, but I don’t know where they are. And even if I did, I’m pretty sure I need to replenish some of the bandages, ointments and other first aid supplies.

So I went to the Red Cross site and saw this First Aid Kit for $25. They also have emergency radios and fully-stocked 3-Day Emergency Preparedness Kits to take all the guesswork out of what items to pack. If you’re like me, pick up some of these supplies for your family’s safety, and while you’re at the site, do yourself a favor and read up on their emergency preparedness tips.
