Your first step to be prepared is to an buy emergency kit.
It’s a great start, but it’s not sufficient for all of your needs beyond the first three days of an emergency. To extend your supplies to last you two, four, eight weeks or more, you’ll need to buy more products.
The same company you buy your emergency kits from should have an ever expanding line of products to choose from. New and cutting edge tools and supplies may improve your state of preparedness, but if you buy from a ‘stale’ company, you won’t know that more options exist.
