Life's Everyday Emergencies

Admittedly, I'm a little bit behind here on the blog. Our little girl has been a bit difficult and sleep has been very limited. I'm also coming to the end of my maternity leave and it's hitting me hard.

Anyways, back to blogging.

Being prepared for life's everyday emergencies is just as important as being prepared for a catastrophic disaster.

Here are some of those everyday emergencies to keep in mind:

1. Natural disaster

2. Power outage

3. Car break down or accident

4. Health issues

5. Job or income loss

Having a small food supply, bottled water and any necessary first aid items in your home and car at all times makes these emergencies a lot easier to handle.

Additionally, having some savings in the bank or currency at home can making weathering an emergency possible.

These events are all more likely to happen multiple times in an individual's life than a catastrophic event. So, while you're building up to being prepared for the worst, get prepared for the everyday.

Even think of the small things, like those nights where getting to the store to pick up dinner isn't possible or you come home to find out there's nothing to cook. This can turn an average day into some what of an emergency for your family. But you can keep your family first by having simple plans and supplies in place.
