By January 31st, 2019 Creative Uses No Comments

Weather is a factor no matter where you live in the country, so it is always better to be prepared. During the winter, storms can bring deadly low temperatures, strong winds, ice, and freezing rain. Depending on the severity of the storm you may find yourself without heat, power, and phone lines. One of the ways you can be prepared is by stocking a storage container with emergency supplies.

Shipping Containers have many uses. Since they come in various sizes, it allows folks to be creative with the configuration and where they are placed on-site. The most common sizes 20’ Storage Containers and 40’ Storage Containers. The largest size that is usually available are 45’ Storage Containers. However, larger sizes like 53’ Storage Containers are available in some locations as well. You may also want to consider a refrigerated container if your goods need to be insulated or refrigerated to a specific temperature.

Some necessary items to put into your cargo container to prepare for an emergency would be:

  • Food – at least a 3 day supply
  • Water – one gallon per person (and pet) per day for at least 3 days
  • Can opener
  • Clothes
  • Batteries
  • Generator
  • Gasoline – make sure the tank is full so it doesn’t freeze
  • Flashlight – battery or crank operated
  • Radio – battery or crank operated
  • Wood & Matches
  • Medicine/First Aid Kit
