Weekly Assignment, Food Storage and Emergency Preparedness Ideas (Week of January 20th)

Hi Carson Ward Family, Family and Friends,


When things are calm we become complacent with things that have happened before, like natural disasters and other emergency situations in our lives. It amazes me how many times, when hurricane season comes upon the South and East coast of the United States, people are running frantically to the store for supplies (water, canned foods, flashlights, batteries, boards/nails to seal up windows, etc.), when they know this happens every year. What not always be prepared? Why do they let the supplies they gathered either get used and not replace them, or throw them away? Why do they do this?

We are continually admonished by our prophet and church leaders to be prepared. We always need to be on the look out and be ready for what ever may come our way. Not just when the storm is on the horizon.

"The greatest events that have been spoken of by all the Holy Prophets will come along naturally as the consequences of certain causes, that unless our eyes are enlightened by the Spirit of God, and the spirit of revelation rests upon us, we will fail to see that these are the events predicted by the Holy Prophets." George Q. Cannon

"The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it." Proverbs 27:12

Let us each prepare better and continually rotate our food and water storage and our emergency supplies. Do not become complacent, thinking all is well! Things can change quickly!

Weekly Assignment: 72 Hour Individual Emergency Food Kits

This week add the following:

1) 3 hot chocolate drink mixes for each family member's food kit: Place the 3 hot chocolate drink mix packages, along with the 3 granola bars and 3 juice boxes, and 3 small boxes of raisins in a large zip lock bag with the family member's name on the bag. Hot chocolate usually comes in a box of 8 or 10 packages.

Emergency Preparedness:

What do we need to do? So far the past few weeks I have talked about electricity, lighting, and emergency medical supplies. This week I will discuss shelter.

Shelter is a very important part of emergency preparedness. What if you could not stay in your home or you had to evacuate to an unknown place? What if it was very cold, as many of us have experienced the last several weeks, or it was hot? You will need some type of shelter to protect you and your loved ones from the elements of nature. Many of the "Sandy", and other disasters, victims could not stay in their homes. Please see the "Shelter" posting under "Postings" on the right for ideas.

Besides our 72 Hour Emergency Preparedness Backpack Kits, we carry a small tent and a quilt in our car. You never know when you might be away from home when a natural disaster or emergency situation arises and you will need shelter.

New Solar Fuel Less Generator Company: I just discovered a new company that carries the solar fuel less generator for a great price. This one even has a wind power system. Yes, you may say it is expensive, which it is compared to a gas generator, but you do not have to store gas or worry about trying to purchase gas when the pumps do not work or there is none to purchase. And you can use it inside your home and it is quiet while running. It is powered by solar panels and/or the wind power. Check it out at the link below.
