In the wake of Hurricane Sandy's push along the East Coast, we're thinking emergency preparedness in any form. Stay on top of your family's safety by keeping a backpack-sized emergency disaster kit stuffed with the essentials like a first aid kit, a flashlight, water, and other geeky items like these.
Although Japan is the most earthquake-prepared country in the world, here at Sugar, our hearts still go out to their people. And while you may be pondering ways to help, also consider ways to improve your own emergency preparedness plans in your home and in the office.
You should have at least three-days worth of supplies per employee stored in the office. An all-purpose first aid kit ($13) is a no-brainer, but you should also stock up on Mainstay 2,400-Calorie Food Bars ($5 each) and water purification tablets ($5) in case you get trapped in the building. A Self-Powered AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio ($30) and 12-Hour Lightsticks ($1 each) will also come in handy if the electricity goes out. Find other useful supplies for an in-office survival kit up above and here.
