Disaster Supply Kit

Prepare Your Kit

Review the checklist below. Gather the supplies that are listed. You may need them if your family is confined at home. Place the supplies you'd most likely need for an evacuation in an easy-to-carry container. Possible Containers Include: a large, covered trash container, a camping backpack, and/or a duffel bag. Stocking up now on emergency supplies can add to your family’s safety and comfort during and after a disaster. Store enough supplies for at least three days, preferably seven days, in one place.
