8 Life-Saving Household Items. Be Prepared!

Emergencies happen every day, but preparation helps to save lives. Because natural disasters and accidents often happen unexpectedly, the present is the best time to gather items for your emergency preparedness kit. Read on to learn a few ways to start preparing.

1. Aspirin

Aspirin is an effective pain reliever and useful if someone is experiencing symptoms of a heart attack. Some people are sensitive to aspirin and it should not be used for young children, so you should also keep acetaminophen as an effective pain reliever and ibuprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication that helps to reduce swelling.

2. Antihistamine

Antihistamines help to reduce allergy symptoms and are helpful for seasonal allergies. They also help to reduce allergic reactions to food and contact allergens. Keep both the liquid and tablet forms available. With severe food allergies, the liquid makes a better choice.
