Poll results: Emergency kits
Last week's poll asked Yourhomers whether they have emergency kits stocked with the recommended 72 hours of supplies — a particularly timely question after this week's fierce storm. (Read the full story about stocking your kit).
Despite the recommendations from Public Safety Canada, the majority of us (sadly, myself included) at 92 per cent said they don't have a well-stocked emergency kit. Only 8 per cent are prepared for an emergency!
I know I've got to rectify the situation and boost my own, rather shameful, kit, which currently consists of some Band-Aids, a flashlight and a handful of candles and matches. Hopefully I'll get it done before the next power outage!
And, while it may feel like summer has just finally arrived, our new poll looks forward to the fall renovation season — what area of your home do you plan to tackle this fall?
And, don't miss our sneak peek of what happened when Colin and Justin were let loose in the Star editor's office, along with their bland to grand hallway transformation and the latest in eco-friendly frying pans.
