Change you clocks! Check your stocks!

Posted on March 7, 2013

Check your stocks when you change your clocks this weekend.

MC900441431When it’s time to change your clocks this Sunday, March 10, because of daylight saving time, use it as a reminder to check your preparedness kit. Make sure your emergency stockpile isn’t missing any items such as batteries or flashlights and that the food hasn’t expired. If you haven’t created a stockpile yet, now is the time to create one!

The Get Ready: Set Your Clocks, Check Your Stocks campaign has checklists, fact sheets and shopping lists to help you whether you are refreshing your kit or starting from scratch. Remember: It’s always better to update your supplies before an emergency occurs.
