Does your giving support #OKready?
Still looking for holiday gift ideas? What better way to say happy holidays than to give the gift of preparedness to your family and friends? The onset of winter is a critical time for safety preparation. Several items that are critical in emergencies also make good gifts to store in a disaster supply kit. Download FEMA’s “Preparedness on a Shoestring” activity module for cost-effective ways to create disaster kits on a budget. Many of the items may be found around your home including:
The gift of preparedness can mean more than the basic supply kit! If it becomes necessary to boil water during an emergency, consider giving a tea kettle as a gift. Tea kettles are better at boiling water than pots and pans because they are enclosed and the metal interiors allow for more even heating. A solar charging unit for charging and powering electronic devices would also make a good stocking stuffer. They range in size from pocket-size to fold-out panel and are powered by the sun, making them useful on clear days when electricity is unavailable.
