Link Up

It's Thursday!  Time for another great link!

This week I am highlighting  They have TONS of information about emergency preparedness.

The reason I chose this one this week is that they have some great guidelines for preparing for a pandemic.  Here's a quote from their website:


U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt has said “What happens before [a pandemic] is far more productive [than what happens after one starts] and individual preparations on a household basis are key. 
It’s not just state and local governments – every tribe, business and family needs to talk through a pandemic plan.”

This site also has really great resources including CERT supplies, search and rescue supplies, fantastic first aid kits, defibrillators (no kidding) and my personal favorite, their 72-hour kits.  If you are having a hard time figuring out what to put in YOUR 72-hour kits (I know you have them!) then this site can give you a lot of great ideas as well as the reasons why!  They also have a space where you can create your own 72-hour kit from their products.  Cool huh?
