Preparing household emergency equipment in advance, self-help can be carried out immediately when disasters comes. So far, China's relief materials such tents come from the Ministry of Civil Affairs, few people prepare their own tents. Those tents are difficult to reuse. Preparing household rescue equipment saves more lives and is more environmentally friendly and economical.
