Calendar Mar 25, 2023 at 10 am, runs for 1 week

The great toilet paper famine of 2020 was the catalyst for shortages of everything from eggs to pasta and flour to bathroom cleaners. Panic buying became out of control. This class will explain what (and how many) items you should always have on hand in case of crippling blizzards, ice storms, or another lockdown. Learn the difference between “sell-by” and “expiration” dates and food shelf lives as well as simple water solutions (for extended power outages) and how to customize a practical emergency “stay at home” plan. We will discuss alternate means of staying warm if you don't have a wood stove back-up, how long frozen foods keep in a freezer during a power outage, propane versus gasoline generators, preparing food when the power is out, lighting options, and much more! Finally, we will explore what drives a panic/hoarding frenzy and how you can avoid getting caught up in it. This class will not only help you but the community as well by reducing the number of people drawn into a panic-buying situation. Please preregister as a minimum of 4 people is required to run the course.
