Emergency Supply Kits

Do you have an emergency supply kit?

Every family needs supplies on hand.  Start your emergency kit with these essential items:

  • Three days of food that won’t spoil, such as canned goods and packaged foods.
  • Three days of water, one gallon per person per day.
  • A hand crank and/or battery-powered radio and extra batteries.
  • A written family emergency plan.

Once you gather these basics, put them in waterproof containers that you can carry or roll in case you need to leave your home quickly.
