Pics From the Emergency Preparedness Fair

DH explaining about water purification. 
Debra and Joel did a fantastic job. Anything you want to know about sanitation you could have learned from them.
Debra outdid herself with her props.
If the you know what hits the fan. You now know where to put it.
Thanks Debra for all your hard work!!

While looking for "loo" supplies I found this.  It is on special right now for $1.29 at Emergency Essentials.  (I love that store and their web site and their catalogs!)  Joel says it is the best little multi tool he has and he has more then I can count.  (Along with flashlights and tape measures.)  A great little tool to fit in any one's wallet or purse and perfect for a stocking stuffer.  It's the size of a credit card and comes with the two sided card, diagram and label.  (Don't tell my boys if you see them.)
