GTFOOD and Disaster Preparedness for dummies

The DVD Disaster Preparedness for dummies is not bad for the first level of mulling over natural disasters.  Probably the most valuable reason to watch it is when one is debating (as I am) of what to put in a GTFOOD bag.  Phoenix is not likely need to flee (no hurricanes, tornadoes, minimal earthquake threat, and why in the world would a terrorist care about AZ?)  But a good “Get the F out of dodge” (GTFOOD) bag is the first level of the stockpile kit, or as I like to call it  “How to make a home into a compound.”

What stuck out for me from watching the DVD:

What to start packing: Think the basic needs of life, water, food, clean air.  Good things to add is basic medicines, flashlight, a crank powered radio, gloves, change in clothes and shoes.

Use that flashlight, avoid use of matches or candles when you are not sure about gas leaks.
