LA unprepared for terror attack

A new study released yesterday by the RAND Corporation, UCLA and LA County says that just 1/3 of the residents of LA are prepared for a terrorist attack, and the most prepared are the African American and Latino populations. The study found that 37% of Latinos and 31% of African Americans had emergency supplies compared to 21% of whites and 19% of Asian Americans.

If you don’t have an emergency kit in your car and your house, please spend some time preparing one before a major disaster hits. It will be money well spent. Here are some things that would be good to have in your emergency kit:

  • Food (I prefer MREs)
  • Water
  • Battery powered AM/FM Radio (Ham radio if you have one)
  • Flashlight
  • Sleeping bag / solar blankey
  • Extra batteries
  • Cash
  • Any prescription drugs you need
  • First Aid Kit
  • A warm jacket
  • Backpack to keep it all in
  • Pistol & Extra Ammo (totally optional)

I am sure I have left some things out of that list, and obviously you don’t need a weapon in your emergency kit, but you never know.
