Mid-Summer Night's Dream

Yes, I know. More dreaming. But, it's summer. And, it is hot out, so this is a good time to sit down with a cool beverage and sort out the stuff in your emergency kits. I will try to make it easy for you:

For Home, Car and Work or School...
___Check the integrity of your bin. Cracked? Water tight? Need a new liner?
___ If anything is bulging, rusted or beyond its expiration date, toss it.
___Check an adhesive bandage. Is it still sticky? If one is bad, they probably all are. The hotter the climate, the more likely they will go bad in a year or two.
____Is your phone, contact and insurance information still current?
____Give your wind up flashlight/radio a good cranking.
____If anyone has "grown" since the last check, replace the clothes.
____Replace the water in your large bins or drums. Your lawn needs the water anyway.
____Use the helpful checklist for emergency supplies at for more kit ideas.

Don’t stress that you can’t do it all at once. In fact, do a little every day or two for a week and get the whole family involved. You will be up to date in no time.

Enjoy your summer and sweet dreams.
