From 8 to 108...Each One Teach One...We Are All Connected...The World Village

Residents and friends of Pledgerville Senior Citizens Villa in Pacoima, CA. gather to learn the basics of disaster preparedness. With a focus on having a 7 to 14 day emergency supply of medications, preventing post disaster injuries (put on shoes, drop-cover and hold, securing non structural items around house/apartment), water and food supply that supports dietetic needs (low sodium, no sugar and packed in water), our meeting was very productive.
One of the FAQ's I get (frequently asked questions) is where to get the specific flashlight/radio combo that is in my "GO" bag. There are many great products on the market, but the specific one that I have is: The Power Station
The company I purchased it from is Quake Kare and in searching the web site, I could not find that specific product, but they have others. Click the link to see the web site as well as a few other preparedness suppliers.
I hope this is a good start, but there are many other great places to get preparedness supplies.

Ready Set Go Kits ( is also a good source for affordable pre-made emergency kits. They even have kits for pets!
