My first project on our project of emergency preparedness was about procedures and things I should know. I found a lot of good links.
It seemed that beprepared.com had a lot of good information a wide range of situations. I went there for most of my researching.
I really liked this list of what to do during and right after an earthquake. Since I didn't grow up in earthquake country, I didn't know a lot of this information. My brain always thinks about tornadoes and thunderstorms.
I love this link to a bunch of different checklists for emergency preparedness. It includes lists for the situations, kits, plans, and much more. I spent quite a bit of time on just this page.
A list for making an emergency and evacuation plan. We used this checklist to make our emergency evacuation plan. I'm sure I'll add more to it and will have a little binder that includes much more information about our family and home.
I also found an article from Your Own Homestore about some thrifty ways to prepare for an emergency. These were some really great ideas that I hope to put into action soon.
Let me know if you've seen any other great resources for getting the basics and essentials ready for emergencies. I'm still a little overwhelmed with everything I've found. But I'm hoping breaking it down into smaller steps will help me conquer the intimidation I feel.
