Inventory Blankets and Warm Accessories • October Prep Challenge #2

Fall brings cooler temperatures, so your October week two prep challenge is to inventory blankets, and warm accessories like beanies, mittens, and gloves. Then put a few of these warm items for your 72-hour kit. Which warm clothing items you need will vary depending on your climate, but in an emergency when the furnace is off you will want warmer accessories.

Inventory Blankets and Warm Accessories

Many of us have blankets and quilts, but have you ever taken an inventory of them?

  • Look throughout your home to see if you have enough blankets, beanies, mittens, and gloves to keep everyone warm during the winter or a power outage.
  • How much is enough? Just think of your baby, children, or grandchildren in a 45-degree house and you’ll figure it out.
  • If you have lots of visitors, have lots of blankets.
  • If your child’s favorite blanket gets dirty during a disaster, is there another one to replace it?
  • Wash your blankets and warm accessories and store them where everyone can find them.

Add Warm Accessories to Your 72-Hour Kit

As you inventory blankets and warm accessories, you’ll be ready to face the cold.

Best wishes, stay healthy and warm!
