BUDGET EARTHQUAKE AND DISASTER PREP: Emergency Kit and Tips from a SoCal Native

Hi Everyone! So as we all may know, California was hit with a few big earthquakes in the past few weeks so it inspired me to make a quake and disaster emergency kit for my car and apartment. I’ve lived in Southern California my WHOLE life so I’m no stranger to earthquakes, the yearly school shakeouts, and how to stay safe and be prepared for when the “BIG ONE” hits. In this video, I share with you my budget earthquake emergency kit which almost ALL OF came from Amazon! An average 3-day disaster kit for 1-2 people goes for about $150 online which to me is CRAZY and I managed to build my own with the REAL necessities for either 2 separate kits or 1 kit for 2 people for less than that. Most kits seem like they’re packed with the essentials when you’re really not getting what you need. (Is a 300-piece kit really 300 pieces when 150 of those pieces are the little dot band-aids? Not really). I really hope this video helps and inspires you to make your own kit, it’s never too early to be prepared!
