September is National Preparedness Month and we in Colorado like to stay prepared for just about anything. Putting together a disaster kit my sound daunting but in reality it is a simple process that can be turned into a family learning experience.

This week we will take a look at creating a 72-hour kit in a two-part series that will help you and your family, including pets, be better prepared for an emergency. First, let’s take a humorous look at the kind of kit you might not want to have.
