    With the ShakeOut coming up the topic of our emergency supplies inventories has been discussed. We are wondering what other Districts are doing as it seems to be a huge waste of money to keep a bunker full of emergency supplies that go bad and have to be replaced every couple of years. Does anyone have a better process that avoids waste and is cost efficient?

    Dollars aside, just as in inquiry – I tried LOOKING for another option, such as a company or service, that would come out inventory, provide the supplies, remove out of date materials & replace them, but no joy.

    (Our first aid vendor does that for all the employee first aid wall kits).

    go to this web site and he provides a calculator for home and schools to determine how much you need to store. https://disastersurvivalskills.com/collections/school-emergency-kits

    I have received suggestions from employees who have had children at elementary schools where the District had asked parents to fill backpacks with a list of emergency supplies including water. The students bring the backpacks to school where they are stored for the year and only used if there is an emergency. The backpacks with unused contents are then sent home at the end of the year to be replenished at the start of the next school year. Seems like a simple plan but I keep looking for the caveat.

    We used Prep and Save in Upland, CA who completed Audits of all of our sheds and recommendations for items we needed or should have. Many of the items we ended up purchasing have a 30 year shelf life.
