The Filter – March 2022

Get a Kit that Fits

Spring is arriving! While the weather will be beautiful most days, the season also has some stormy days. Keeping a few items stockpiled in your home and car will help your family live comfortably if the power goes out or roads become impassable!

Basic items:

  • Water (one gallon per person per day; minimum of three days’ worth recommended)
  • Nonperishable food items like canned goods
  • Manual can opener
  • Flashlights
  • First-aid kit
  • Cellphone with chargers/battery backups
  • Weather radio
  • Batteries

Make the emergency kit your own with items your family specifically needs or wants. Prescription medications, pet supplies, and books, games, or puzzles are all great items to include!
