Build a disaster preparedness kit
Grab a plastic storage bin or duffle bag and getting packing!
The recommendation is a gallon per day per person. It’s good to have a three-day evacuation supply.
Keep enough for a three-day supply. Stock foods that can be stored for a while and are easy to prepare. Some suggestions may be dry cereal, protein or fruit bars, canned fruit, vegetables or meats. Remember to include a can opener.
- First aid kit
- Flashlight and ample supply of batteries
- A week’s supply of medications
- Personal hygiene items
- Multi-purpose tool
- Cell phone and charger
- Sleeping bag
- Important documents
- Change of clothing and shoes
Maintaining your kit
After assembling your kit store it in a cool dry place. Replace items as they expire. Re-evaluate your kit yearly as your needs dictate.
