So how can I prepare for a crisis?
The problem with a disaster or crisis is that no matter how many warning signs you may see, it is usually impossible to predict the scope and length of an emergency.
Like all good guides, Outdoor Geek Inc. starts by providing you with an in-depth crisis preparedness checklist that highlights the essential items you should have in your home.
Their advice is designed to make sure you’re completely ready for any possible situation (regardless of the length of time the emergency may last or the size of it) by highlighting a few key areas where you can effectively plan ahead.
Some examples of this include:
So you don’t hinder any rescue workers, you should define the escape routes you and your family can use in case of a sudden emergency like a fire.
Point of Contact
Designate a friend or relative who lives nearby (or abroad if you have the connections) to be the link between your different family members in the unfortunate situation you are separated.
Teach your children from a young age the important emergency service numbers and have them placed in an easy location so your family know exactly where they are if the need arises.
Having The Basic Equipment
There are several items that are extremely useful for a number of crisis situations, such as:
- Drinking water (you should have at least 4 litres available per person per day)
- Spare Batteries
- Whistle to signal help
- Tin Opener
- Power Bank (to charge small electronic devices if the power fails)
- Wet Wipes
- Trash Bags
- Non-perishable food (like rice and tinned preservatives)
Along with these items, you should also make sure that you stockpile everyday necessities like toilet paper, prescription drugs, personal hygiene items, any essential medical equipment, cookware, and sleeping items (such as a blanket and pillows.)
Where The Equipment Should Be Kept
As you don’t know when or where the crisis will take place, it is a good idea to make sure you have the essential items and equipment stored in several different areas.
Outdoor Geek Inc. suggest leaving a small supply box at work (containing food, water, and medicine for at least 24 hours), your vehicle in case of stormy weather (or if a natural disaster occurs), and at home (this is the place where most of your supplies will be and it is important that your family also knows the location.)
