So what are you preparing for? What scenarios are you prepared for?
Let’s look at a few test cases and see how prepared you would be. From minor inconvenience to zombie apocalypse.
Grade 1 Preparation – Minor Disruption
This is your most basic preparation scenario. Chances are that you still have electricity and possibly water but you are either trapped at home or have to bed down for a few days.
You need food to last you and everyone in your house for 3 to 4 days. You should probably have a supply of drinking water just in case, at a minimum of 2 litres per person per day.
Between your refrigerator, your freezer and your kitchen cupboards you should have enough food to keep yourselves going in comfort.
