While our comprehensive kits try to offer the basic survival necessities, we understand that each disaster situation is slightly different. Sometimes, you might need something as small as a spare flashlight, and other times, you might need a large tarp or a pop-up canopy for shelter purposes. At More Prepared, we carry high-quality emergency supplies that you may need on hand in a disaster situation. Explore our site for radios, first aid supplies, brightly colored emergency vests, biohazard protection materials, and much, much more.
Different Types of Emergencies
Emergencies can happen to an individual or a group of people. They can pose a threat to health, wildlife, or the environment, depending on the circumstances. Natural disaster emergencies include earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires, floods, and so on. Other types of emergencies can include blackouts, disease outbreaks, oil spills, and biohazard situations, which is why it is important to always be prepared with an emergency preparedness kit.
How to Stay Safe
Keeping yourself, your loved ones, your school, and your pets safe during an emergency depends on what type of emergency you are experiencing. If you are caught in an earthquake, be sure to follow the “drop, cover, and hold on” method to protect your body from falling debris, and teach young children how to do the same. In the event of a flood, do not attempt to drive through high waters, as this is what causes most injuries during flooding. If you are in a tornado, hurricane, or other extreme storms, be sure to stay indoors, as far away from windows as possible. If you don’t have a storm cellar or basement, try to remain in the middle interior area of your home for the duration of the storm, or until officials tell you that it’s safe.
