Out with the old/In with the's back to's what to do!

One of the best tips I share with my CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) class members is to recycle item they already own. Minimise spending money, but still get you and your family prepared. As your children, grandchildren, neighbors, kids in church, nieces and nephews head back to school and we buy new school supplies, do not throw away the old backpacks. Take the old backpacks and use them as "GO" bags for your family.
Another tip for your back to school shopping is take advantage of school supplies being on sale and include these items in your families disaster supplies. (notebook, pens, markers, index cards) all of these things can be used for documentation and triage tags.
