Tip #2 - Preparing for emergencies needn’t be expensive, plan ahead and buy small quantities over time. Create a list of foods your family regularly consumes, these should: Have a long shelf-life and be non-perishable (can goods are an ideal choice). Do not require cooking. Meet nutritional needs. Can be easily stored. Have a low salt content (salty foods increase thirst). Ease of access and portable. At minimum you should keep a 2 to 4 week supply of foodstuffs on hand at all times.
