All to many injuries occur during the Holiday’s and often times the key is preparedness Here are some things we all can do to protect ourselves according to the Division Of Emergency Management.These also make just great for gifts for the Holiday Season.

Emergency Wx. Radio

I believe in these 100%. I have one for the car, home, and even one for the boat. Great for the fast changing Northland weather.

Winter Survival Kit

Mandatory here in the Northland, and surprisingly inexpensive. You can make your won in a few minutes.

Cell Phone Adapter

I also have one of these, for my vehicle and for Mrs. Rayman as well. They charge you phone fast too.

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

If you use your fireplace or stove for heating, a carbon monoxide detector is a must. A good source of brands to purchase is your local fire department. A great gift that could save your lives. Also, the fire department can come out and check your home for carbon monoxide detection, and suggest the proper placement of all detectors.

Fire Extinguishers

I’ve been in a house fire, and that experience mad a believer our of me. We have one on each floor. Again, your local fire department can aid you in recommending some.

Foldable Ladder

It sounds crazy I know, however if your main level exits are blocked, you can always knock out a window and get your family and pets out with one of these.

Pet Disaster Kits

Lets not forget about our pets. We have 3 dogs, and they need food and water too. Another good investment is a carrier for transportation of the pet in case of fire or disaster. They’re also great for taking the pets to the vet. Don’t forget leashes.

Battery Powered Flashlight and Lamps.

Often times power outages can be lengthy. Candles are o.k., but a battery powered lamps throws much more light.
