In case disaster strikes this holiday season, the Federal Emergency Management Agency wants you to be as prepared as possible. Still looking for an extra holiday gift or two? The agency has provided a list of suggested purchased which can even be given as gifts, for families to keep their homes safe. Some of those include: disaster kits with food, water, medications, clothing and blankets, NOAA weather radios, battery powered lamps, foldable ladders, and much more.
In a statement, FEMA Regional Administrator Phil May says, “In the southeastern U.S. alone, there have been 15 presidentially declared disasters and two major wildfires in 2009.” May their recommendations could help save a life, or prevent disaster.
