Planning - Make a Kit

How comfortable do YOU want yourself and your family to be if First Responders can't get to you in an emergency? During a disaster, it takes at least three days or more for Emergency Officials to make sure the area is safe, and if it isn't, the First Responders may not be able to get to you even if you call 911. As a result, you and your family need to build a 72-hour Emergency Supply Kit so you will be safe in case of disaster.

Here's what you need:
  • Water: 1 gallon per person per day
  • Food: non-perishable canned goods with can opener, granola bars, protein bars, "comfort" foods like cookies or hard candy
  • NOAA Tone Alert Weather radio
  • Extra set of clothes with sturdy shoes
  • Flashlight with extra batteries or light stick
  • Whistle
  • First Aid kit including a three-day supply of prescription drugs
  • Entertainment items like a deck of cards
  • Shelter-in-Place supplies like duct tape and plastic
  • Cash: ATMs won't operate if power is out
  • Put together small versions for the office, school and car
Remember, emergency supply kits should be designed to fit your needs.
