Safety and Preparedness - Pandemic Kits!

Pandemic Kits
Even though there is no immediate
threat of a pandemic, it's important to be prepared.
It's better to get prepared BEFORE
the emergency, than to try and prepare
DURING the emergency.
It's also A LOT CHEAPER.
When we are in the middle of the emergency
we are at the retailer's mercy and supplies are limited.
If we plan ahead, we can price compare
and purchase a little at a time.
Here's a link to a Pandemic Kit:
It's one of the best lists I've seen, and it's
broken down into smaller purchases.
(Many of the supplies are available at the Dollar Store.)
You may be surprised to find that you probably have
a lot of the supplies already.
Take a few minutes to put the supplies you have
into a tote or duffle bag.
You're one step closer to being
 Prepared NOT Scared!

  1. In a true pandemic you are looking at a disease that is so easy to contract that it is likely everyone will be exposed to it. There are four possibilities: 1)You will never show any symptoms and be fine. 2)You will get sick and get care and recover. 3)You will get sick and ignore it and recover. 4)You will die from the illness. Your article suggests that there is a 5th possibility, that you can avoid contact and never get exposed to the disease. This is very unlikely. Maybe if you live on a remote island in the Bering Sea you can avoid exposure. But if you live in modern society you WILL be exposed and you will experience one of the four possibilities. Simple as that. The mask won't prevent exposure even if you wore it 24/7. Washing your hands won't prevent exposure. Staying in your home won't prevent exposure (unless you live in a bubble). If it's there you will be exposed. That is the difference between the bug that causes a pandemic and the everyday bugs you can protect yourself from. That is why it is a pandemic don'tch see.
