Emergency Preparedness Kit - 72 Hours|
One of the new things that I want to pay more attention to in our home this year is our level of preparedness for emergency situations. This was not a decision that I made out of panic and fear, but more because I felt empowered by being able to help my family, friends, neighbours and community by being prepared.
Part of emergency preparedness is to prepare for natural disasters, job loss, power outages, etc. but also for when the furnace breaks in your home, your car won't start and you are stuck in the cold. It is all about being prepared and able to help yourself and others :)
If you have not looked into emergency preparedness then it might seem overwhelming, but we are here today to make things easy. Let's start with a small essential 72-hour emergency kit.
Did you know that many of the products we make at Forever Bee is also perfect in your emergency kit? We have put together a Forever Bee Preparedness Package to add to your kit.
The Forever Bee Preparedness Kit includes:
1/2 lb Bee Pollen
500g Raw, Unfiltered Creamed Honey
Beeswax Pillar Candle
10 x 1 oz Beeswax blocks
Honey - it is great for emergency wound care on burns, cuts, sore throats, coughs, etc. It is also a great source of carbohydrates and nutrients in an emergency situation. Mix a tsp of honey in a bottle of water with a pinch of Himalayan sea salt - it is a perfect electrolyte drink to help with hydration.
Bee Pollen - this is a super food that contains all your vitamins, minerals and over 40% protein. When you are low on food, make sure to have bee pollen in your kit.
Beeswax Candles - these candles are long lasting, they don't drip and don't smoke. They also last a very long time. All emergency kits should have at least one pillar candle that can be used as a light source, heat source and also a cooking source.
Beeswax - pure beeswax is not necessary in a 72-hour kit, but should be part of your long term emergency kit. With beeswax you can make your own body products, waterproof your shoes, seal your food, make your own candles, etc.
Lippy Balm - ideal for keeping your lips from drying and cracking and you can also use it on your cheeks and hands in an emergency.
We have put together a very useful list of items for your 72-hour emergency kit. This kit can be assembled in a 5 gallon food-safe bucket and be kept at home or in your vehicle when you travel.
