The ready-made kits that you can buy at the store or online are packed with the basic items needed during a regular first aid emergency situation.

Protection Is a Must During a Pandemic

You’ll need to be aware of any late breaking news in the event of a pandemic.

Emergency broadcasts will still be done – even if society breaks down during a pandemic. So you’ll want to make sure that you have a solar powered radio.
