Be Prepared with


Emergency situations occur everyday. Whether it’s an earthquake, tornado, flood, fire, hurricane, storm, or another disaster, you need to be prepared. Being prepared for such emergencies can make a significant difference in your chances of survival. The time to be take action for Emergency Preparedness is now, not when a disaster strikes!

It is ideal to store enough food and water in a safe place for each member of the family. Some might feel that food and water is the only necessities a family will need during an emergency. This misconception can lead to a miserable ordeal and can certainly lesson your chances of survival.

Yes, food and water are important, but what about flashlights, matches, blankets, water purification tablets, toiletries, radio, cell phone, etc.? How about a written emergency plan that can be sprung into action if the need arises? Your children need to know where a safe haven is to meet with you if you may get separated.

If my children are in school, my son and daughter are to find one another if deemed safe and wait together until my husband or myself, come to find them. They are in good hands, the school has several active plans in place and will do their best to care for all of the children.

It’s important to keep calm during an emergency situation. If you lose your cool, so will the rest of your family. While I understand that this could be a stressful and frightening time, think about your children. Children feed off of the emotions of adults. If you are stressed out, they will be as well. It will be tougher to keep everything together if you don’t keep your head on straight. Stay calm and reassure your family that they will be ok.

I’d like to share a company that I recently discovered while browsing the internet. sales a variety of survival products for the home, office, school, and more. I am so impressed with this company, I’ve decided to take the product I received and share it with my son’s Boy Scout troop. It was a pleasure speaking to the owner of He is willing to speak with anyone who has concerns and/or questions about the products.

I received the two (2) person Deluxe Honey Bucket Kit and have to admit, I’ve never considered having a “portable potty” during an emergency. Have you? This does make sense, where would you use the facilities if a disaster situation arose? The honey bucket consists of the bucket and a sturdy, plastic toilet seat in the shape of a traditional toilet.

The only thing that I wish was different, is the food bars. I'd like to see them in individual wrappers (They are available for purchase individually). I haven't opened any of the food bars and cannot tell you how they taste. However, I've been assured that they are delectable.

I’d like to share a tidbit of information about some of the products I received in my kit. If your family needs additional items, they are readily available for purchase. Organizing your bucket, provides extra room for similar products. Or, you can purchase an additional, empty Honey Bucket to fill. It doesn’t hurt to have more than one kit in an emergency.
