Making an On-The-Go "Emergency" Kit

Have you ever been away from your apartment and realized you really could use something you left at home, like a jacket or some hand sanitizer? We’ve all been there.

While it’s impossible to take your Quarters apartment in Lady Lake, FL, with you wherever you go, you can make your own “emergency kit” to take with you so that you feel more prepared no matter what life throws your way. Everyone will have their own preferences on what to keep in their emergency kit, but a few handy ideas include:

  • Money – It’s usually a good idea to have some spare money tucked away somewhere, as well as loose change to spend on things such as highway tolls.
  • Umbrella, rain coat, and boots – Florida can be a rainy state, and not much is worse than getting involuntarily drenched with mud and rainwater.
  • Bottled water – Although it might be tempting to bring soda, carbonated beverages are notorious for “exploding” and getting everywhere. Also, drinking water is necessary for when you need to take oral medications.
  • Bandages and disinfectant – We’re all vulnerable to getting a little cut now and then. Ease the sting by having a few bandages and anti-bacterial ointment ready to patch yourself up.
  • Scissors – Almost nothing is handier to have around than a good pair of scissors. Keep an extra pair with you in the event you need them.

These are just a few of many items you might want to consider keeping in your own personal “emergency kit.” As time goes on, you can add to or subtract from the kit so that it’s always up-to-date with the items you need for those just-in-case scenarios.
