Our Family Motto

We, the Peterson Family:

Promise to be honest in all we do and say,

Stand tall and righteous throughout each day.

Serve around the world and in our home,

Give thanks for blessings we’ve been shown.

We’ll work as a team with joy and love,

And honor our Heavenly Father above.

Basic 72 Hour Kit

The government's Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) has lists of items they suggest all residents pack into an emergency bag. Begin with those items. The quantities must last for at least 3 days, per person. They are:

  • Food: 3 days of non-perishable food items per person
  • Water: One gallon of water per person, per day for drinking and sanitation purposes
  • Dust masks and poncho
  • Flashlight and batteries: While one flashlight is good, one per person is best. Use small penlights with LED bulbs for longest lasting light
  • Whistle: Every person in your family should have a whistle to help signal location, distress or for help. Putting the whistle on a lanyard helps keep track of it
  • Sanitation-Moist towelettes, hand purifying gel, paper towels, trash bags in several sizes and plastic ties
  • Blankets or emergency "space" blankets for warmth
  • A heavy duty backpack or duffel bag with a shoulder strap to carry kit items
