Find us on Google+ Pinch A Little Save-A-Lot: Free: Family Emergency Planning Kit

**Attention Readers: As of 1/24/14 all printables are first come first serve. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I had to end my Box membership, so they will only allow a set number of downloads per month. Once I’m moved and have settled in to my new home, I should be able to once again afford the monthly fees. In the mean time please come back at the first of the month and try downloading. Thank you for your patience.

Free: Family Emergency Planning Kit

I live on the Oregon Coast where you never know what Mother Nature is going to throw your direction. Last week we were pummeled with hurricane force winds gusting over 80 mph and later that same day we were unexpectedly hit with 7 inches of snow!! The snowstorm toppled trees and caused widespread power outages. Most roads were closed, leaving my husband unable to make it home from work until the next morning. This crazy weather combined with the occasionally Tsunami warning has made me very aware of just how unprepared I am! My husband and I are creating emergency supply kits to keep at home and in the car, so if another freak snowstorm hits we will be ready!

Every family needs an emergency plan, even though hopefully you’ll never need to use it! I’m giving you all free emergency planning kit that includes everything from important contacts and meeting places, wallet cards to a home inventory list.

  14. Hi Bekah! I am originally from Oregon and my family still lives there. My in-laws are planning on retiring to the coast very soon-so I am downloading this AMAZING checklist with them in mind. Wouldn't this make a nice gift--along with helping them fill it out-then present it back to them all filled out prettily (and maybe even on a disk so they can change it when needed)? Oh! I see who is the favorite daughter-in-law now!! (Well...ahem...the only one...but I can still enjoy-eh?) Thank you for your thoroughness. :) (you can visit me at redstarroost@blogspot.com)

  15. Hi! I tried downloading this but when it won't open, it just says "please enter the document permissions password to remove the restrictions" Not sure why. I really do love these though and would love to print them out! I've seen a few different ones, but yours are the first free ones I've seen, so I was so excited to download them. Please let me know what I can do.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Tori, I just went to box and downloaded the kit and I also tried printing straight from box with no problems, not sure what is going on. I have password protection to prevent copying, but that should not interfere with printing. I will email the kit to you and I hope that helps.

  16. Thank you so much! I love that these are fill-in-able.

  18. You have got to be the most organized person I know! Sooo envious! lol
    I am having issues though downloading your free printables. It goes straight to PSE ( photoshop Elements) which I never use anyways.. but then it asks for a password. It's doing this on all the printables. Anyone else having issues with this? It will download.. but once it goes to PSE it requires a password. Thank you for such amazing work!! I hope to be as organized as you someday by followiung your guidelines! :)

    1. Hi! Not sure what's going on. I do have a password on all of my printables to prevent copying. Two ideas come to mind. Have you tried downloading from Box and then right click > open with > Adobe Reader? That should work, if not Box allows you to print directly from them. Hope this helps :)

  22. Great emergency lists. I'll use them in our home and for our Scout meetings to prepare for the "Shakeout" earthquake preparation event on 10/18. www.shakeout.org/
    As an added layer of protection, you can use a converter like OneNote, SnagIt or PDFCreator to save these as jpgs and keep them on your smartphone or just print them and keep them in your glovebox! We keep an extra copy of important papers and our backup hard drive at my Mom's apt. a 1/2 mile away.
    Happy Prepping!

  24. These are great. My family is wholly unprepared for an emergency. If there were a zombie apocalypse I'd have to break into the neighbor's house for supplies.
