BE A HOARDER

Again, on any normal day we'd never tell you to hoard, but under these special circumstances, we think it makes sense to stock up on food and supplies. Non-perishables like canned soup are preferable for obvious reasons - we recommend the ones with the pull-tab tops in the unlikely, but still horribly frustrating event that something happens to your can opener. As a green website, we still have to push for a Brita or other water filter as a first resort before bottled, but we definitely encourage you to start purifying tap water and saving it in containers right now. You should also make sure you have: batteries, a first aid kit, a whistle, iodine tablets, personal hygiene items, a phone that does not rely on electricity, and child care supplies. Check out more details on how to prepare an emergency preparedness kit here.
