I recently read a blog from Walt Mueller, a youth culture expert living in Elizabethtown, who decided that he would ride 50 miles on his bicycle to celebrate his 50th birthday.  By mid-day, Walt was in a Hershey hospital with multiple broken ribs, a punctured lung and a broken collarbone to name a few of his injuries.  Although on the upswing from his late July accident Walt does have some very long days.  You can read more of Walt's story here: The Center for Parent and Youth Understanding).

As I reflected on Walt's blog I was reminded of a couple of things:

  • First, the unexpected sometimes happens--normally when I least expect it.
  • Secondly, have I adequately prepared for emergencies (finances, supplies, health insurance etc.)?

What about you?  Have you prepared for potential emergencies?

The following "Emergency Kit" tips are courtesy of a resource from the National Home Builders Association.  I encourage you to consider preparing your own Emergency Kit.

Prepare an Emergency Kit

In the event of a disaster, local officials and relief workers may not be able to reach your home immediately, so you should have an emergency kit on hand.

Basic services such as electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment, and telephones may be cut off for days, or even weeks, so you should be prepared. The Federal Emergency Management Agency recommends stockpiling at least three days’ worth of food and water for your family. Their website www.ready.gov offers a list of items to include in a basic emergency preparedness kit, as well as guidelines on food and water storage and protecting yourself from airborne contaminants.
