The Friday Five - Blizzard Edition

How many times have I told you to be prepared with just simple things you have around the house and on your possesion to be prepared at all times.  Today on "The Friday Five" from Gina she talks about five simple questions to ask that may help to survive the upcoming arctic blast.

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a fantastic week.

 Today my family and I are preparing for Super Storm Nemo, which is forecasting to be blizzard like conditions here in the New York Area. I am making sure I have all of my prescriptions filled, enough water, food, and gas in the car in case something should happen to my house and we need to evacuate. I always try to be prepared for emergencies because you never know when something could happen.

Here are five questions you should all ask yourself...

1. Do you have an emergency plan?

2. How many days worth of supplies do you have?

3. What do you put in your emergency kit?

4. Do you have an emergency contact list?

5. Do you have enough food, water in the house, and gas in the car?

JDRF has resources and emergency forms to help you prepare for natural disasters and other emergency situations that can be found here: http://www.jdrf.org/index.cfm?page_id=104014

The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has a Diabetes Emergency Plan, available online at http://empoweryourhealth.org/diabetes-emergency-plan with a list of crucial items you should keep on hand to stay safe and healthy during an emergency.

By taking a few minutes to answer these questions and by having a plan ahead of time, you could prevent a potentially stressful situation and make your life much easier should there be a natural disaster where you live.

Please share any emergency tips you may have with me in the comments section of this post.

Please stay safe to all of you, if you are going to be affected by the storm.

Have a great weekend, and Happy Friday!
