Natural disasters can come unexpectedly. Protecting your family should be your top priority.
Preparing for natural disasters, whether it is a hurricane, flood, or earthquake can mean the difference between life and death. After a major disaster the usual services we take for granted may be unavailable. Taking the time to assemble a disaster emergency kit before a disaster strikes will help you through the temporary loss of everyday conveniences such as safe water on tap, fresh food supplies and electricity. It is recommended to be self-sufficient for at least three days.
Prepare now. During an emergency, supplies are in high demand and stores run out of inventory quickly. Once a disaster hits, there is no time to search for supplies.
Your disaster emergency kit should include the following supplies:
- One gallon of water per person, per day
- Ready to eat food
- Manual can opener
- Plates, utensils, cups
- First aid kit and prescription drugs
- A copy of important documents and phone numbers
- Warm clothes for each family member
- Battery operated flash light and candles
- Disposable camera
- Battery operated radio
- Personal hygiene items
- Blanket or sleeping bag
- Supplies for your pets
Store your household emergency kit supplies in an easily accessible location. Put these contents in a large, watertight container that you can move easily.
