Our third preparedness challenge for November is to add emergency tools to your 72-hour kit. To make this simple, I selected items you can find on sale during the holiday season. You may already have some of these at home. If you ever need to evacuate, camp out or camp in, these tools could prove useful. Keeping them in your 72-hour kit will help you find them quickly.
Add Emergency Tools to Your 72-hour Kit
In an emergency, you may need to fix something or free someone. Gather a few emergency tools to help you. Or perhaps buy these items for someone else for Christmas!
- Consider getting a multi-tool or a Swiss Army knife and some carabiners. While shopping, think lightweight and useful. I like the ones that have scissors on them.
- You’ll find competitive prices at hardware stores, dollar stores, the men’s gadget section in department stores, and Walmart.
- Attach a few carabiners to the outside of your 72-hour kit so you can hang something important when needed.
- Find more ideas on useful equipment at Preparedness Challenge: July Week 1.
If you don’t need anything this week, focus on gathering more food storage.
Best wishes and be thankful,
