Using a fire drill as a model for a quick evacuation plan for your family, place the event in perspective. We need to think about who needs to be involved. Appoint older children to buddy with younger ones or to be in charge of pets. Schedule a family meeting to discuss the drill with the older children that are not going to be frightened by the subject. A four year-old may not understand the concept where a 13 year old will. Take care not to unnerve the youngest members of you family with these discussions. Put your escape plan on paper and talk about what to do and how to get out in the event of a fire, flood, or any situation that requires you to leave your home.

Some folks reaction to food storage is thinking they have to buy 300 pounds of wheat and sit on it for 20 years. We have to select and consume a balanced diet the best we can no matter what. Though man cannot live on bread alone it is a large portion of what we need to set aside. Choosing a nutritionally balanced diet in times of additional stress will adequately supply the body's defense and energy systems with proper nutrients from healthy grains, vegetables, fruits, proteins, and dairy items.
Using the USDA's guidelines to build an adequate storage for nutritionally balanced meals, our preparedness goals can be locked down with a set of pre-determined portion servings and sizes within each group.
Using the maximum serving sizes and portions figure what you want to add based on the number of family members, time goal, and specific calorie needs per day. A helpful nutritional calculator link will help determine what your personal needs are for your daily diet. A food calorie calculator link is shared for the calorie counts in the food you are consuming.
The page, Healthy Survival Foods, also details the needs for a day and a 28 day month for a single person's storage needs.
Tips on home production and preserving methods is included as well.

IF you are in Las Vegas, contact me about sampling or setting up your own work at home business!
I want to talk to everyone I know about getting together a 30 day supply before they move onto a larger time goal.
If you are not in the area I will still help work with you on this! No purchase necessary! I am happy to help!
I work in an industry that is seasonal. When winter rolls around we are at our lowest income for the year. Having a few goodies and supplies set aside for this is a way to make ends meet when paychecks are barely meeting our needs.
By budgeting throughout the money season, so to speak I am able to be prepared for the lean times which unfortunately is around the time of year when we really want to be spending money, namely holidays!
Preparedness doesn't just include emergency kits and food storage. It relates also to household goods.
Try stocking up in several ways. Buy extra sundries (toiletries) through out the year as well as other items needed to run your home efficiently, i.e. cleaning products and basic paper staples.
Keep a storage of 3-5 bottles each of shampoo and conditioner in a file box. In this box place extra bath soap, tooth paste, and razors. Hair spray and other cosmetic items store at least 2 of.
A prudent reserve isn't strictly money in a savings account. It is also foods and house-hold goods.
Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Pinterest, Stumbleupon in these places I am lost at the moment. All these applications. Trying to get them set up baffles me sometimes. Like preparedness would a new comer.
And there is so much out there on survival readiness I am sure if I hadn't been into the preparedness stuff as long as I have I would be lost in the set up. Where would I start?
I am thinking back to my days in a hurricane prone city. When we first moved to Florida it was really beautiful. We were not aware at the time of the storm season in the late spring. We had moved in October 1987 after the hurricane season had ended. Imagine moving from a desert to a tropic zone. Thankfully when hurricane season rolled around we didn't have to dig very far for information. There were survival guides available at the supermarket and every where we went it seemed. They had lists of survival supplies and suggestions to help us get through a serious storm.
We learned from our friends and neighbors how to throw a hurricane party! You had to make the best of it. If the storm was bad enough it could mean a serious calamity was on your doorstep.
Life's crisis aren't always storms. No matter the bad occasion, make it work by getting prepared. In a hurricane area you are aware a disaster is on it's way. The technology that is used to track storms these days is top notch. You can follow it through it's entire wake, if you are not in the center target area. The only thing these tracker's can't tell you is how badly your home and family might be affected by it.If only all emergencies and crisis could be tracked like hurricanes. We might be in better shape if we had a little bit of a warning. Don't wait for the warning signs. Get going on your Survival Recovery!
Preparedness 1 2 3
Creating a food storage and survival recovery plan takes a little research, some idea of what to plan for and a little guidance from someone who has been there, done that. What we have here is for a beginning prepper or a budding survivalist.
There is a lot of information on the subject but what they forget to tell you is how they got started!
This is where you can begin. By breaking down the basics into easy to understand terms and directions, you can assemble the necessities as quickly as your budget will allow. Take your time and carefully consider what you need to target first.
I would suggest a first aid kit and a 72 hour kit. From there, the page on grains would be a good step in the food storage area for your survival recovery plan.
