Emergency PreparednessThe following are various measures of preparedness that will assist you and your loved ones in cases of emergency.
In the event of a disaster, prepare to be self-sufficient. During the first few hours or days following a disaster, essential services may not be available. Minimally, you should have a 72-hour emergency kit at home, at work, and even a few items in your car
Your 72-hour Kit
Your 72-hour family preparedness kit may include:
Items for a family preparedness kit can be placed possibly in a 30-gallon garbage container with wheels for easy evacuation, if necessary. Medicine, some food, and personal items may be placed in each individual backpack. Rotate your food supply on a regular basis.
Items that can help for stress management may include soft small toys for children, board games for youth, and books or a musical instrument for anyone including adults. Be sure to pack food items that are favorites of members of the family.
Your vehicle should have survival items such as: a comfortable set of clothes, a set of sturdy walking shoes, an emergency blanket, warm clothing, a flashlight, batteries and water.
