Preparation key in emergency situations

“Am I ready for an emergency?”

That’s the question you may be asking yourself after yesterday’s tsunami warning.

There’s also the risk of an earthquake as well as smaller emergencies that can spring up like a house fire. Carmichael says the first step is a three-day emergency kit:

Your kit should include things like clothes, non-perishable food, water and a wind up flashlight and radio. That way you’re prepared for something like the power going out for an extended period of time or a lack of services.
