Here's another tip for your "planning for an emergency" kit.

Week 6 - Get a portable radio and extra batteries for your emergency kit.

Week 7 - Learn about hazards. Know the hazards in your community. Find out if the area where you live is vulnerable to landslides, flooding, interface fires or other threats such as hazardous material spills. Also do a home hazard hunt to make your home safer. Secure appliances and heavy furniture and move beds away from overhead objects like heavy mirrors and windows.
