Be Prepared – Build an Emergency Supply Kit

BUILD AN EMERGENCY SUPPLY KIT

  • Buy or build a kit for your family
  • Be prepared to improvise and use what you have on hand
  • Include enough to get by for 3 or more days
  • Consider having more than one kit and keeping them in different locations
  • You will need water, at least one gallon per person per day
  • No perishable foods (protein bars, dried fruit and canned food)
  • Filter masks, gloves
  • Duct tape, garbage bags and plastic sheeting
  • Cash-small bills
  • A first aid kit
  • Your daily medications

Making a kit can be done very reasonably and on a budget. Your kit needs to be easily accessible to grab in a minute’s notice.
