You never know when a disaster might happen. So, you want to be prepared in every way possible. That's why we have gathered together some of the best apps that can help you be ready should disaster happen.
To prepare for a disaster, the first thing you want to do is make a list of the things that you have at home and see what you need. These are going to be items such as food, batteries, water, and flashlights. You never know when the power might go out and you may not have access to safe drinking water. So, you want to make sure that you have everything that you and your family need when you are unable to get to the store or when the power is out. Don't forget medical supplies too. Out of Milk is a great inventory app to use.
Next, once you have stocked up on food and supplies, you want to have a good way to keep track of when the items are going to expire. This way you can use them before they go bad so that you don't waste your money and your supplies. This is handy to have even when a disaster isn't coming. Sadly, a lot of people have found food items that they purchased and forgot they had in the cupboard. So, putting your food into an app for your Apple or Android device will help you with knowing what will expire soon so you can use it. You can feel relaxed knowing that your chances of wasting food will go down.
Finally, depending on the type of disaster that is happening, you might need to leave your home behind and only take what you can fit in your vehicle. At worst, it's a good idea to learn how to identify different types of plants so that you know if they are safe to eat. You just never know. One app that many people enjoy using is Mushroom Identify. This app helps you identify mushrooms when you are out camping or when you're outdoors, or when you simply need to leave your home. It's also a good idea to learn about other edible plants and how to forage so that you are able to eat even when you are miles away from a grocery store and your stock has run out. Being able to identify plants will help you be smarter.
