When people talk about preparedness, they’re usually referring to food, water, first aid kits, emergency radios, and all the other usual suspects. Most people don’t think about hammers, shovels, chainsaws, and other common tools, but they really should. After a disaster, they will really need those tools.
One obvious example: A hurricane or tornado has partially crushed a home, and a family is trapped inside. You might need a flashlight, a sledgehammer, and a pry bar to get them out. Even if there isn’t a life-or-death situation like that, you still might need tools to repair damaged doors, roofs, and windows. Or a chainsaw to chop up downed trees in the middle of the road.
