Be Emergency Prepared with ACDelco

We live 1 hour north of Pennsylvannia and just this year we felt the aftershocks of an earthquake, experienced hurricane Irene's fury and shoveled out 6 inches of snow just a few days before halloween.

Any old storm seems to cause a power outage in our neighborhood so we always have flashlights handy.  After hurricane Irene, I got serious regarding emergency preparedness for my family.  Here's a list of things to have handy in your home - set a box aside with these contents thats easily accessible in case of an emergency.  Make sure to keep checking the food for expiration dates.

•Canned goods and nonperishable foods that do not need cooking:
◦Canned meats and fish
◦Canned fruits and vegetables
◦Canned soups and puddings
◦Canned fruit juices
◦Dried fruit and nuts
◦Bread, cookies and crackers
◦Peanut butter and jelly
•Manual can opener
•Bottled water (1 gallon per person/per day)
•Prescription medication (2 week supply)
•Extra eyeglasses
•Pet food/supplies
•Water purification tablets (halazone)
•Disposable plates, cups, and utensils
•Infant care items
•Copies of your insurance & bank documents
Flashlights + Camping lanterns + extra batteries
AM/FM Radio + extra batteries

AC Delco has a few items that work really well in the emergency preparedness kit

 The ACDelco Storage Box contains 25 Alkaline Battery (12-AA, 8-AAA, 2-C, 2-D, 1-9V), 2-AA Aluminum Flash Light and AM/FM Radio.  The box is small and very portable and works well for the kit.  Its a good idea to have a radio as power outages may may render your cell phone, televisions and internet access inactive.  At $15.61 + shipping at Amazon this is a small price to pay in an emergency.
