In addition to a basic first aid kit, it’s also a good idea to create an emergency kit composed of basic supplies that you may need in the event of an emergency. These supplies should be gathered in addition to a first aid kit.
Candles and matches stored in a zip top bag, dust masks, plastic sheeting and duct tape can also be included.
If there is a baby in the home, you’ll also want to include formula, bottles and diapers. Age appropriate games and books may also be included. If there is a pet in the home consider packing pet food and additional water.
Storing the supplies in a large, waterproof storage bin can make for easy access.
Nannies should discuss emergency readiness and planning with their employers and work together to create an emergency kit if the family does not already have one.
