I signed up for my city's mass emergency notification system. I provided my contact methods and locations in case of a local emergency.

"Emergencies can happen anytime. Now, when an emergency happens, whether it be city-wide or neighbourhood-specific, Regina is ready to respond. With the push of a button, the City of Regina can reach thousands of residents with necessary and timely information to help ensure their personal health and safety.

Notifynow lets you know what to do, where to go and what to expect during an emergency with a message sent directly to your landline, cell phone, or email."

Great tip! Thanks, haertig!

I've done the same. I'm now EDC'ing a 26oz Kleen Canteen for meals, and a 500mL Gatorade bottle for drinking on the move, both full. The metal bottle is buried in my pack, along with my cook pot, and the plastic one right at the top, easy to grab on the go. I also have water tabs & filter straw in my FAK to make more potable water without a fire if needs be. (I also carry a 1L platypus to hold dirty water, if it comes to that.)

Great idea, Roar, especially in light of what's going on in Fort Mac right now.

I put a shovel with an extra long handle in the back of my car. I have seen several situations where this was an effective tool for putting out a small spot fire, such as a cigarette butt tossed into a ditch full of dry grass by a clueless, self-absorbed knuckle dragger. Given the extreme fire conditions out here, the ability to jump on a small fire before it grows exponentially is crucial.

Finished up buying all the 40 S&W from the local PD, they switched over to 9mm earlier this year. 950 rounds of Winchester 165gr Ranger Bonded and 850rds of 165gr fmj. Been stockpiling mags and ammo. Redacted
