Yes, I know I am like three weeks late, but I was preoccupied with this dreadful winter cold, my Christmas shopping, and a week's worth of leftovers from Thanksgiving to spend three hours at the movie theater. However, while watching Harry Potter this weekend, I couldn't help but notice how "Red Cross Ready," Harry really was. So I figured I would enlighten you muggles on what you are missing, but how we here at the Ministry of the Red Cross can help!
With You-Know-Who on the loose, Harry Potter knows he needs to be prepared for disaster at all times—whether it is natural, man-made or death-eater induced. Lucky for him, he has the ultimate disaster kit.
Used with the right spell, Harry’s wand can serve a multitude of purposes including but not limited to:
- Light source (Lumos)
- Water producer (Aguamenti)
- Scissors/Knife (Diffindo)
- Fire creator (Incendio)
- Repairs injuries (Episkey)
- Heimlich maneuver (Anapneo)
Also make sure you’re prepared for disaster by packing your kit ahead of time. For a full list of disaster kit items, go to www.redcross.org.
Before departing on a mission to save the wizarding world in “Deathly Hallows,” Harry packs up his basic needs along with a few special belongings. What special item(s) would you carry with you during a disaster? Post your comments below.
