Time to adjust the watches and check stocks


Daylight saving time ends this Sunday, November 3rd. It’s the perfect reminder to make sure your emergency stock is up to date. Get ready to set your clocks, Check your stocks campaign helps you be prepared for a disaster before it happens.

If you haven’t created a stash yet, don’t worry. Now is the perfect time. Get ready has information sheets which include everything you might need.

Here is a quick checklist of items to include in your stash:

  • A supply of water for three days, with a gallon of water per person per day
  • A three day supply of non-perishable food and a manual can opener
  • Flashlights, radios and batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Prescription drugs, sanitary items and diapers
  • Products for animals

Disasters usually occur with little or no warning. You may not have time to go to the store. Think about what you will eat and use during an emergency. To stock up on recipe ideas, check out Get Ready Emergency Preparedness cookbook.

And don’t forget: DST changes are also a great reminder to check smoke alarm batteries!
