There are a few earthquakes around my area and over the years it has gotten more frequent. I've finally made a small emergency kit which is placed outside in a big garbage can. I've tried keeping necessary things inside but have not completed it. Do you have emergency kits prepared for a disaster?

Hi dear, Geographically we are in a little bit stable conditions and never take place an earthquake situation nearby areas for ever. But it can happen at any time as per our earthy conditions. In fact I have no precautions for the same or not taken any immediate measures for any kind of natural calamities. As you mentioned here, I think I can take care of some other things if it may affect our area. However, you have reminded all with some kind of f/a precautions. Regards, Thank-s

That's great you are in an area that is stable... but what about for other disasters? My home is right by a fault line so we have been getting quakes often this year.

Hi, that's true. I put stickers on the things that need to be replaced in there with the date so I will know how old they are. I am going to make sure to update it every 6 months or so.

I used to know how old things were, but then I used to be a lot more on top of things...

Hi LORE We don't have eartquakes, but in a home accidents may happen any time, like somebody getting a burn in the kitchen, a fall in the bathroom, the children are more prone, they can get wounds, so we too keep a emergecy first aid kid ready always at a convenient place in the central place in home.. Thank you so much for the discussion. Professor ‘Bhuwan’. . Cheers have a lucky day ahead. God bless you. Welcome always.
