Disaster Preparedness Handbook
Most of the government agencies are now recommending that we have a 7 day supply rather than a 72 hour kit. This unique handout shows you how you can put a 7 day supply in a water tight bucket, gives suggestions for additional things you may want in your 7-day emergency kit and a list of "nice to have" as well as items for your car. It also shows you 51 ways you can use a trash bag in an emergency. Well worth the read:

10 Basic Steps to Preparedness

STEPS ANYONE CAN DO TO GET READY
Once you have that accomplished then you are ready to prepare for a longer emergency.
Your next goal should be to have a 1 week supply, then a one month supply, etc.
When you store food the most important thing you can do is to store the things you eat now.
Many people have learned from hard experience that children will not eat strange food even in an emergency.
The second most important thing you can learn about food storage is to rotate your food.
If you are storing what you currently eat, that makes storing food much easier.
When you buy a re-supply just put it in the back of the shelf and use the old first.
If you feel overwhelmed with trying to get a year's supply, try doing it in little steps.
Start by setting the goal to just get a one week supply.
You can do that by simply buying a little extra each time you go to the store.
If you are going to buy 2 cans of corn, buy 3 and put one aside for your week's food supply.
Another thing you can do is go to the stake dry pack canning facility.
Gig Harbor Stake Preparedness Curriculum
This curriculum was designed to be taught similarly to how “Teachings for Our Times” is taught. Each Bishop may call a member of his ward to teach each topic using the talks listed below as study materials. Each class offered will be taught by the Spirit and will adjust to the needs of those attending. The Stake Welfare Preparedness Committee would like to teach the first six-week course in each ward to prepare and train the Ward Food Storage and Emergency Preparedness Specialists (train the trainers) to take over this course and offer this training throughout the year. The Bishopric is welcomed to teach any classes they feel would benefit their ward or delegate to ward members as so inspired.
