Brad: Today in the Lab….Disaster!
Clay: Are You…Prepared?
Brad: …This episode is brought to you by
Baby Bjorn. One thing you can depend on being
safe all the time, Baby Bjorn.
Clay: Brad, I’m going to go ahead and admit
this to you. I, I’m having some second
thoughts about letting you talk me into doing
a disaster segment.
Brad: Why? Dude, people need to be prepared.
Families need to be prepared for any eventuality.
Think about it. Hurricanes? Floods? Tornadoes?
Just overall pestilence. What are you going
Clay: That’s pretty much why.
Brad: You’re not prepared, that’s why.
Clay: No, I am prepared. I even bought in
my disaster kit to show you that I am prepared.
Brad: What I have here is the Red Cross emergency
survival kit. You can go and find this at
www.redcross.org and get your own list to
make your kit. Okay, Daddy Clay, do you have
water in your kit? You need 1 gallon per person
per day of water.
Clay: I’ve got water. Right, there it is.
Clay: There it is… there’s water
Brad: Ok, you have about 15 ounces of water.
Clay: Yeah were good, yeah, you see my kids,
I have three kids, one for each kid, boom,
Brad: What are you and Kim going to drink?
Clay: We’ll have wine.
Brad: Oh, do you have a non-perishable easy-to
prepare food items?
Clay: Yeah, right here.
Brad: (laughing) this is all your food?
Clay: That’s like space food, dude.
Clay: (laughing) That’s like…

radio or emergency weather radio…are the
batteries in there Daddy Clay?
Clay: I don’t know.
Brad: Does it have a hand-crank?
Clay: no, it’s a….

Brad: (laughing) you don’t have the batteries?
Clay: No, I have batteries
Brad: You have extra batteries?
Clay: I have batteries.
Brad: extra batteries is on the list.
Clay: extra batteries
Brad: No wait come here, look, you think those
batteries are going to fit, and this is not
a NOA weather radio, it’s like a little
walkman from 1985.
Brad: First–aid kit? You have a first-aid
Clay: I do, right here, first–aid kit. 30
Brad: You have, like some band-aids, that’s
Clay: Multi-purpose tool?

Clay: Ok, wait. I do. I have an emergency
whistle and I have surgical masks. This is
what these are, right here

big 20lbs sack of beans. And you don’t want
to eat beans without rice. Got some rice
here, 20lbs of rice. Got some evaporated milk.
Will never go bad. And because disasters don’t
have to be bland, I have a big ass jar of
Clay: okay disaster preparedness. I get it,
I understand, but can we talk for a minute,
about this water thing. 1 gallon per person
in the household per day for two weeks is
what you’re supposed to keep on hand?
Clay: For my family that’s 70 gallons of
water. That’s 560lbs of water. Where do
you keep that?
