Even if you have never been in the aftermath of a earthquake, tornado or hurricane, you know that these disasters and others happen frequently. All to frequently for most people’s comfort. Most people have some type of emergency supplies in their home should the unthinkable happen and that is good. However, what about your office or place where you work? Do you have some type of office survival kit in case an emergency happens at work?
The truth is that most people spend 8 to 10 hours or more at the place where they work. This means that the chances are good should a disaster occur you may be at work rather than at home. Yet most businesses have no emergency office survival kits to help their employees ride out an emergency until help arrives and they should.

There are office kits designed for the larger businesses that include shelter, food and a light source should you need it.
Emergencies such as natural disasters and terrorist attacks can occur at any time. Being prepared to face such situations is the most important thing.
September is national preparedness month in the U.S. Drawing up a plan and keeping a stock of survival supplies for an emergency can help you and your family prepare for unexpected events.

Hurricane Preparation Tips in 2010 – What Your Family Must Bring and What to Avoid Without Exception
Each and every year thereís a deadly season of hurricanes that devastate the Americas. The dreaded hurricane season 2010. Typically these deadly hurricane nightmares have more destructive energy than 1000 nuclear bombs. I was stunned to hear this for several reasons. But more on that later.
First I will cover the critical hurricane preparation tips I recommend based on my experiences. First I will cover the common sense basics. Then I will progress to some really savvy tips I either learned or gleaned myself since last year. Finally, I have a few surprises that may in fact be very forward thinking. This is due to ironically a holistic healing visionary named Glen B. Stewart (myself).
Hurricane preparation tip – Be sure to make a detailed list of all the critical items each of the family members must have on a daily basis. For example any prescription medications. Of course consider other possibilities such medication for allergic reactions like bee stings.
A complete first aid kit of the small boating variety I consider pivotal. And generally casing on this type is waterproof. If you get the plastic first aid case it will float as well.
Also get a box of those 1 gallon resealable style bags. These resealables are great for storing just about everything from food to fresh sets of kids clothing. It will float and keep the contents dry if not loaded down with heavy items.
Establish a set of hurricane evacuation maps for your entire family. Go over these every several weeks during hurricane season. Pick several safe and secure alternates just in case the first one is either full or inaccessible. Go over your hurricane evacuation plan six or seven times at least the beginning Week of Hurricane Season 2010.
For family members who cannot typically carry a cell phone, consider a pager. A pager can boh reach any child with your current phone number and tell them to reach you back ASAP.
