Back-To-School Preparedness

 

Back-to-school season is here! You’ve enjoyed a long summer of relaxation, camping, and quality time with the family- now it’s time to put on those thinking caps and get back to studying.  We’re prepared at home and on the road, but have you thought about emergency preparedness at school? Schools are usually equipped with supplies, but making sure you’re prepared with your own supplies is very important.  Stay prepared by assembling a mini locker, desk, or backpack prep kit. Check out our suggestions on what to pack!

 

The Walking Dead TWDZPAK

Don’t know where to start? Our TWDZPAK has the perfect combination of items for emergency prep and everyday use; the custom water bottle comes with a light stick, emergency whistle, space blanket, poncho, and bandages.  You can use these products as a great starting point in building your school emergency kit and use the water bottle for everyday use! The custom water bottle is perfect for all day hydration and It even comes with a custom carabiner to attach the bottle to any backpacks or bags your kids might use for school.  

 

Emergency Drinking Water

Just in case an emergency situation results in a water shortage, and the water in your TWDZPAK has been consumed, it’s important to also have extra emergency drinking water in preparedness kits.  Although schools usually have a water reserve, when it comes to preparedness, one must never rely on others.  Adding drinking water to mini prep kits is a must.

 

Emergency Food

You never know how long an emergency situation will take to get resolved. It’s important to include food items like energy bars and rations in school prep kits in order to promote alertness and energy until help can arrive. Also, be make sure to keep an eye on product expiration dates to ensure freshness of the food items.

 

Emergency Contact Info

Including a card or sheet with all up to date emergency contact info is extremely important.  While schools have family contact information on file, in the event of an emergency, they might not have the time to access that critical information. Having that information ready in their prep packs could help speed up the rescue process.



Build you prep kit and stay prepared this back-to-school season!
