OK, so I was meant to post this back in October and I just plum forgot. Christchurch just had another major earthquake, and that has freaked me out. Finally, the reminder email for being prepared.
So, you’ve had way more than 3 weeks to get your stuff together for emergency survival. How did you do?
Original post here, a bunch of people asked for reminders in the comments.
get back up batteries for the torch and a bigger, meatier torch might be nice too. Yes, we got a new torch and a fancy survival pack for two for Christmas. It has water purification tablets, space food and heaps of good stuff.
Transistor radio? Conceivably not necessary if we have access to the car, but we should probably not rely on the car. I think survival pack had a wee radio with it…must check.
– Landline phone that doesn’t need electrical power. We only have a flashy called ID phone that relies on the cradle being connected to mains power. – Didn’t manage this one.
Couple more things for the first aid kid (esp wipes, gauze, etc) – Sorted.
– Alternate method of cooking. We have a little wood burner BBQ but not so much fuel for it. – Didn’t do this either, but we’ve got heaps more canned food and water in the house, and that makes me feel better about things.
How about you, those that commented back in September?
