On last night’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) shows off his emergency supplies kit to a guest who will staying with him for a few days. Not only does he have enough supplies stored in his bedroom closet to last him for 8-days, he also has an escape plan and a smaller backup emergency kit. I would say that he’s Red Cross Ready. Way to go Sheldon!
While Sheldon is super-prepared with his 8-day kit, at the Red Cross we recommend that you start with a kit to last you at least 3-days. Learn how to build your own kit here, or purchase a starter kit from our store.
In addition to the necessities, don’t forget to include entertainment and comfort items in your kit. As you can see in the clip below, Sheldon has it covered…though I would recommend a deck of cards or something that doesn’t require electricity.
