Power4Patriots announced today that it has published its first-ever guest blog from a customer. The blog post, titled “Be Prepared” is More than the Boy Scouts’ Motto, is written by a West Virginia woman whose house burned down recently, destroying virtually everything in it.
Although she had some emergency items stored in a separate cabin on her property, she regrets not having stored much more, including the items listed below.
Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, will be launching soon to help people be prepared for a crisis.
The key learning revealed in the guest blog post is that having all of one’s eggs in one basket is not a good idea. The guest blogger, who is also a contributing writer for Two Lane Livin’ magazine, recommends that people storing emergency supplies pay heed to the way they store them. When she went to her cabin following the house fire to remind herself of what she had stored there, she realized that items she had placed in air-tight containers were in great shape, but other items such as cot mattresses had been chewed through by mice.
Below is a partial list of the items the guest blogger recommends storing in a second location:
Coffee is not always listed among the types of foods and beverages that should be stored for an emergency, but staying awake in a crisis could prove to be essential. Coffee could also be an important bartering item following a disaster. Check out this Power4Patriots blog about including coffee in an emergency supply.
