as a result, we decided that we would put together kits for every family member. one full kit for the home with a full first aid kit, supplies and a few food items and one backpack for their car with a basic first aid kit, space blankets, fire starters, protein bars, rope, multitool, etc. we told them that next time they hit costco, they ought to get some extra food supplies and put them in the home kit. they were the most expensive christmas presents i've ever bought my family.

but at the end of the day, my wife and i feel better that we are not the only ones prepared in case of a disaster.
