- Home Depot Says, “Let’s Do This!”
September 1st marks the beginning of National Preparedness Month. National Preparedness Month is sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and aims to promote education and awareness on how people can prepare and respond to all types of emergencies. So how can you get started preparing for an emergency? It’s as easy as finding your way to the nearest Home Depot.
We all know that The Home Depot is a home improvement wonderland, so it’s no surprise that you can find everything you need to prepare for an emergency.
The Home Depots across tornado alley carefully consider the facts about whose storm shelters to sell in their many stores.
They have it all…from glow sticks to generators. So let’s review the basics when it comes to basic emergency preparation.
I like simple. Apparently The Home Depot thinks the same way. They provide great options with items like Ready America’s Grab ‘n Go 2-Person Backpack Deluxe Emergency Kit. This kit contains items like ponchos, blankets, first aid items, duct tape, hygiene items, drinking water, survival multi-purpose knife, and a really cool phone-charging flashlight! Whoa! How much easier can it get? Need more or less? These kits are available in one person, two person, and four person versions. The Home Depot even provides an emergency kit for pets! Five-year shelf life dog food, water pouches, rawhide bones, and a pet carrier are just some of the items provided in this pet-friendly version.
