Xi Safety & A Household Emergency Action Plan

Posted on

Nobody ever thinks a disaster can happen to them. It was only a few summers ago that we had the Big Calgary Flood and the SNOWTEMBER storm dump about a meter of snow on us Calgarians September 2014. We all tend to see disasters as something that happens in other parts of the world such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados and even wars.

But how may of us are truly prepared? The old Boy Scout Motto of “Be Prepared” comes to mind. I can recall the big Y2K mania that occurred up to when midnight struck at the turn of 1999 when all sorts of calamities were supposed to befall mankind. Even ourselves got caught up in the all the excitement and put in a supply of food and water. Midnight struck and nothing! But we had lots of extra grub and supplies for the season of camping that year.

Seriously, you should be able to take care of yourself and your family for 72 hours with an emergency kit, stored in a waterproof container and wheeled, preferably. You might have to stay in our home without electricity, heat or water, or you might even have to evacuate your home.

Items such as food that doesn’t require cooking and wont spoil comes to mind such as granola and protein bars, nuts, dried fruit and canned fish are all good sources of protein and carbs. You will need at least 2 liters of water per day per person as well.

Equipment such as a manual can opener, flashlight and radio (battery or wind up), candles, lighter, waterproof matches, plastic sheeting, pens, paper, duct tape, whistle or some means to attract attention. You’ll need to ensure some means to wash, have a first aid kit, toilet paper, bleach, feminine supplies.

There might also be special needs such as infants, elderly, people with disabilities, prescriptions, pet items and others.

You should also have a list of emergency contacts (names and numbers), some extra cash in small bills, copies of important items such as passports, insurance documents, birth certificates and possibly medical plan cards.

The good folks over at Calgary Emergency Management Agency CEMA http://www.calgary.ca/CSPS/cema/Pages/home.aspx?redirect=/cema have some free info for every Calgarian. Drop in and tell ’em Xi sent you.
