Emergency Preparedness Newsletter
As the leaves start falling off the trees, we begin to see an array of colors being displayed with gorgeous hues and intensive tones. But this change of season also reminds us that a very cold Winter is just around the corner. With that being said, let us remember that preparing for what is to come requires some work on our part.
Due to all the disasters that have occurred in nearby countries, states and islands, we need to consider these disasters as a warning. We need to begin to prepare ourselves for a Winter we have no idea what may bring. We feel that by starting small we could eventually grow bigger. Let’s start by clean out our medicine cabinets. Here are some ideas we could consider in stocking our medicine cabinets for this upcoming Winter.
Chest, sinus, & headache cold medications
Vick’s vapor rub
Headaches & sinus sprays
A household vaporizer
A heating pad
Eye & nose drops
& your own health medications
These are essential medications that may be needed throughout the Winter. Allergies are going crazy right now and making sure you have allergy medications and allergy sprays on hand allows us to function throughout the day. So try to stock up on these medications as soon as possible before November.
Another thing we need to also remember is making sure our Shingles, Pneumonia and flu shots are up to date. Many Pharmacies are there to give you any of these shots as well as your personal doctor. And most of these shots are covered by your health insurance.
Emergency Preparedness is so crucial. God gives us all the tools and He only asks that we prepare and take care of ourselves.
God Bless, Millie Torres
