OK, so it’s been two weeks since the big one hit Christchurch and we all said we’d get our emergency supplies together.
I still need these things: A way to cook food, like a camp stove maybe, or stock up on wood for the BBQ.
Phone which doesn’t rely on mains power, this should be easy to remember since our fancy digital phone is on its last legs, it won’t stay charged at all.
Can opener! We’ve totes broken our can openers as well, so should be easy enough to remember. Next time we’re at the supermarket we will can opener it up.
One of my workmates pointed out this morning that your survival kit also needs to have cash money in it. Power’s down that means there’s no EFTpos or ATMs, shop owners that are still operating will want you to pay with cash. No one carries cash any more so it’s worth stashing $100 or so in the emergency kit.
