Emergency Ready Kit

Leave a comment

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommends that all Americans have some basic supplies on hand in order to survive for at least three days if an emergency occurs. It is recommended that the Ready Kit should be assembled well in advance of an emergency.

The concept is to be able to survive for at least 72 hours until local officials and relief workers arrive on the scene. The disaster could be wide-spread and involve a lot of people that makes it difficult for relief workers to reach everyone immediately.

  • Water, one gallon per person per day for at least three daysFema ready logo2.jpg
  • Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Battery powered or hand-crank radio and a NOAA weather radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Medications (prescription and basic)
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter in place
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Manual can opener for food
  • Local maps
  • Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger
  • Family and emergency contact information
  • Extra cash

Born and Raised on Oahu my approach to the real estate business is different than most agents working in the industry today. The average agent sells fewer than 7 homes a year while attempting to manage every aspect of the business all by themselves. This approach allows them very little time working directly with buyers and sellers because they are so overwhelmed with all the busy work that is required behind the scenes. My system allows me to spend 90% of my time working directly with clients who want to buy and sell real estate today and in the very near future. Here at John Riggins Real Estate we have been helping families move since 1977. We specialize in the Aiea to Kapolei area but not limited to Ewa Beach area. To see all the great ways we help buyers and to view what differentiates us from the typical realtor in the area, visit http://tinyurl.com/clientsuccessstorys Because of Ryan's Military Relocation Expertise, Ryan's success revolves around that same simple principle his Mother and Father instilled in him; serving those who serve our country. His track record shows that he puts his clients first and in a high paced market, he is making VA loans work for our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines. With previous clients ranging from E-5's to 04's, Ryan is ready and willing to make sure all those who have served our country, have every opportunity to own their piece of it. For the majority of people the purchase or sale of a home is their largest single investment. My goal is to guide you successfully and easily through the contractual, investment, and emotional decisions involved in the Real Estate process. I am committed to providing you, your family and your friends with superior service and expertise and to make it the most memorable purchase of your life.
