Quote of the Day
Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
The month of September is National Disaster Preparedness Month and National Preparedness Month!
A Ready Made Emergency Kit, is the easiest way in my opinion to prepare for a potential natural disaster. A survival kit can be purchased ready to go with the majority of the emergency supplies that you would need, in order to be prepared.
Additional emergency supplies can be added in addition to a ready made survival kit, but this would give you the basics.
Find out more information about an Emergency Kit from Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website!
