|May Wellness Activity|
|Are you prepared?|
We all hear this a lot lately … there must be a reason …
For the month of May, the Wellness Committee is focusing on emergency preparedness. We are encouraging you to put together a basic emergency supply kit. This sounds like a great idea! Right?
You ask … what do I put in a basic emergency supply kit?
Additional items you may want to include:
Prescription medications, glasses, infant formula and diapers, pet food and extra water for your pet, import family documents, cash or traveler’s checks and change, emergency reference materials, sleeping bag or warm blanket for each person, complete change of clothes (considering all types of clothing), household chlorine bleach, fire extinguisher, matches, feminine hygiene supplies, mess kits, paper cups and plates and utensils, paper towels, paper and pencil, and if you have children – games or other items to occupy their time.
