Disaster Prep List

Mal Solo
The list author says: "Here is a list of things you should get before disaster hits. Not everything needs to be purchased, lots can be gathered from household items. Just make sure they work! These are not the end all be all products, just some good examples for each category. Make a laminated copy of important phone numbers and addresses. In addition, make sure you have about $100 in small bills and important medications with you."
