in light of the recent tragedy in Japan, and the fact that Oregon pretty much has the exact same kind of fault just off its coastline
, I was thinking it would be smart to make a disaster emergency kit. there are the obvious things that places like the Red Cross suggest
, but I am trying to brainstorm and think up other would-be-needed items.
for instance, assuming that service wasn't interrupted, i could imagine that my cell phone would be vital to have. but that would only be good for as long as the battery was good, so i'd need my charger as well. i also know that i get pathetically weak and headachey when i don't have coffee, so maybe some instant coffee or caffeine pills would be good (though perhaps the adrenaline of a disaster trumps caffeine withdrawals?)
what else? I admit that I'd probably be pretty useless in the case of an emergency or disaster (luckily my girlfriend is a hard-core nature survivalist and trained in CPR!!!)
