It happens more than we realize, living in the Adirondack Mountains, a dangerous Noreaster storm bears down on the area. Just after we arrive home, we find ourselves without power and phone service. The Boy Scout's creed, "Always be prepared". Just a few months earlier, we purchased our new SaverKits, and MedSaver Kits. By taking the time to prepare in advance, we have changed our outcome by having the comfort of knowing, our family is ready!

It is difficult to know what you will need, but professionals have given us a great starting point with these 8 Survival Items.

1) Professional MedSaver Kit - We choose to have the (medium size) emergency medical kit. It comes in a handy wheeled duffel bag, and contains everything from the simple items used for cuts and insect bites, to much more advanced items. These cutting edge life saving items include (ActCel), a hemostatic gauze which is used for bleeding control. Also included is the American College of Emergency Physicians First Aid Manual. A comprehensive guide to treating emergency victims of all ages in any situation.

2) The Saver72 - This SaverKit has more ...
... food and water than many 72-hour kits. There is an LED flashlight, which is more reliable than those with regular bulbs. The Dynamo powered radio means you don't have to worry about dead batteries, and three 12-hour light sticks provide a safe comfort reading area for three nights. You could shop for all of the products for an emergency supply kit that the Department of Homeland Security recommends online, or you could get the Saver72 by SaverKits.

3) Water (2) Types- We can't live without it. Being prepared with Mainstay long shelf life water is a must. These U. S. Coast Guard Approved water packets with a "No Oxygen Transfer", keeps water fresh. Pre-Measured packets keep the water easy to dispense. Each case has 60 packets of water, making it east to store. With a 5 year shelf life, this gives you the protection you need.

WaterSafe is a large, food grade, plastic bladder that is placed in the bathtub first and then filled with potable water. FDA approved, food grade materials are engineered with superior liquid packaging technology, with a bladder that has a clear, three-layer, non-barrier lamination, designed to provide strong seals. This water container can be used for extra safe drinking, bathing, cleaning, flushing, and comes with an easy to use pump.

4) Mountain House 7 Day Emergency Food Kit (2) - A complete 7-day food unit of freeze-dried foods consisting of three (3) full meals per day. With a well planned Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, all you have to do is boil some water and it's a delicious meal ready to eat. With a nice verity of different foods to eat and a long shelf life, ready to eat when you are.

5) Black - Decker Electromate 400 - Portable Power - Having the extra power with a Dual 12 volt DC accessory outlets, and Dual 120 volt AC outlets provides up to 400 watts of household AC power. Power your cell phone, computer, TV, Light Duty Power - Garden tools, games, while making a fresh cup of coffee. Each unit has 4 ultra bright LED area lights, and a built-in inflator with analog pressure gauge to inflate vehicle tires and sports equipment. This can instantly jump-start most vehicles anytime, anywhere.

6) Coleman Remote Control Pack-Away Lantern - This Family-Size lantern is easy to operate and has a remote control transmitter that operates up to 50 feet away. The bright 15-watt fluorescent spiral U-tube provides an extra bright, white light with a reflector that directs light upward and outward for more efficient illumination. On low power, it can run for up to 24 hours. When it's bed time, just click the remote control, and it's lights out.

7) Multi-tool - Is a must have for any situation. This easy to use tool-kit fits neatly into a nylon case that slips onto your belt. Where ever you are, you'll have a needle nose pliers, standard pliers, large knife, small knife, can opener, wire cutters, Phillips screwdriver, large, medium, small screwdrivers, file, fishhook remover, bottle opener, and a fish-scaler.

8) Cobra CB-Radio - Having a way to communicate with the outside world let's everyone stay informed during any type of emergency. This 40 channel CB radio with 10 weather channels gives you communication between cars and truckers. You also have a 24 hour emergency frequency that is monitored by law enforcement for any real emergency.

This is just your start up list. We added some specialty items like a Philips Defibrillator, The Survival Handbook by DK Books, and any extra medications needed. Don't forget to plan for your pets; they are in your care too. Finally, hope for the best, but plan for the worst! When disasters strike, they don't always let you know when and where, so it's up to you to be ready.
