Good Deal on Emergency Kit at Buy.com

smart fixes

OK, have you got an emergency kit for your home and car yet? You should have one! We have had some winter car mishaps, and have had power losses from time to time– an emergency kit is cheap and, believe me, it’s very, very convenient when you need it. You can also have all the individual “stuff” and place it in a big box, but a kit is nice because it’s compact, and because family members are less likely to “borrow” a tool from the kit and never put it back. Not like that has ever happened here. :-p We can never even seem to keep track of our flashlight…

ANYWAY, a kit is very important. It’s good to have one in the car for winter, and in the house year round.

A car good kit includes:
A hand-crank battery-operated flashlight
A hand-crank battery-operated radio
Antibiotic ointment and bandages
Aspirin or ibuprofen
Compass
Waterproof plastic zip bags, with one bag filled with matches
Whistle
Small, portable shovel
Flares
Small blanket
Small amount of cash

A good home kit includes:
A hand-crank battery-operated flashlight
A hand-crank battery-operated radio
Antibiotic ointment and bandages
Aspirin or ibuprofen
Waterproof plastic zip bags, with one bag filled with matches
Whistle
Fire extinguisher
List of emergency telephone numbers and contact names
Small amount of cash

Buy.com has a great First Survivor Emergency Kit. It’s only $17 and the shipping is free. It also includes a handy Mobile Phone Charger with Dynamo Hand Crank Power Generator.

Also, this is the time of year when you should check to make sure you have operating smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in your home. New laws have been passed in various municipalities. Here in New York, carbon monoxide detectors are now mandatory for all dwelling places, both new and existing.

It does not take very much time and effort to provide for safety in the home and car. And Buy.com has made it easy on the budget, too. They have great prices on smoke and carbon monoxide detectors (ooo and on radar detectors, too! heehee). Some manufacturers have come out with combination detectors, too, and Buy.com carries them.

Stay safe this summer! šŸ˜€
