When you're traveling with your kids, there are so many things to remember when you're packing. But one of the things that we never think about is things that could go wrong on a vacation. I mean, I think that it's so important for you to have your baby Tylenol or infant Tylenol with you, a thermometer, Benadryl if there's an allergic reaction; it doesn't have to be those, but whatever your preference is for the medication. Imagine getting an earache in the middle of the night and not having anything to deal with the pain. I don't have to tell you how painful an earache is. The other thing to consider is when you're on vacation, throwing a flashlight in your suitcase as well. What if you lost power at the hotel? It gets really dark in those hotel rooms, so at least having a flashlight would be really helpful if you're traveling.

Cari Butler

Emergency Preparedness Specialist

Cari Butler is a Westside Los Angeles mom and native Californian whose interest in Emergency Preparedness began when her daughter started school and was required to have a personal emergency kit. That raised the question: "Why shouldn't everyone have an emergency kit?" Her concern led her to thoroughly research the subject and then create her own business. She now provides consultation services for families and businesses, as well as offering the Emergency Café line of kits.

Cari’s mission is to get everyone prepared, and she has been on that mission since 2005.  She has been a guest speaker at several conferences and schools. She was asked to participate in the 100th Anniversary Earthquake Conference in San Francisco. Her client list is a virtual who’s who in Hollywood.  

Cari’s website, emergencycafe.com was just awarded the 2009 Best Safety Site by Nickelodeon Parent Choice Awards.  Emergency Café backpacks were the “IT” gift this season in the Dancing with the Stars television show gifting suite.  She is also a contributing writer and blogger on many mommy sites including Hot Moms Club, Gurumommy, Twittermoms, City Mommy and Mommy Track’d. In addition she has been featured on several TV shows and has done numerous radio spots as well.
