-===AARP Suggestions=== +
-[[https://www.aarp.org/health/healthy-living/info-2017/packing-your-emergency-preparedness-kit-fd.html]] +
-  - Basic electronics\\ Pack an extra phone charger in case you’re fortunate enough to have electricity, and a portable battery pack in case you’re not. Also stash a long-lasting LED flashlight. Pack a small hand-cranked or battery-operated AM/FM radio (with extra batteries). +
-  - Personal needs\\ While getting ready for a typical day, list every toiletry you use, then buy a travel-size version of each. Pack backup eyeglasses, as well as a first-aid kit, baby wipes and a multipurpose tool with a knife and can opener. +
-  - Clothing\\ Pack a few days’ worth. Include layers you can add or remove, plus lightweight rain gear and waterproof boots. +
-  - Your meds\\ Pack about three days’ worth of each of your prescriptions, which should last until you can get to a pharmacy that’s open. If you need larger items, such as an oxygen tank, make sure you have a portable version. +
-  - The perfect bag\\ Think small and portable. A backpack is ideal, but a lightweight suitcase with wheels will also do. Just remember, you may literally be running with it. +
-  - Paperwork\\ Fill a zip-top waterproof bag with photocopies of your birth certificate; driver’s license; Social Security and Medicare cards; power of attorney and will; any marriage, adoption or naturalization certificates; proof of address; insurance, medical and immunization records; and information about your credit and ATM cards. +
-  - Food and drink\\ Bottled water is essential. Granola or energy bars are great because they are small and filling, and they come in a variety of flavors. +
-  - Cash\\ In addition to enough money for a few days, include small bills and a roll of quarters. If you need to buy something out of a vending machine, you don’t want to start asking equally desperate strangers for change.+
