Emergencies Can Strike Anywhere

Prepare Supplies​

Since you do not know where you will be when an emergency occurs, prepare supplies for home, work and cars.​


Keep this kit in a designated place and have it ready in case you have to leave your home quickly. Make sure all family members know where the kit is kept.


Be prepared to shelter at work for at least 24 hours. Your work kit should include food, water an​d other necessities like medicines, as well as comfortable walking shoes, stored in a “grab and go” case.


In case you are stranded, keep a kit of emergency supplies in your car.

After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supp​​lies to last for at least 72 hours. A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.

Maintaining Your Kit​

After assembling your kit, remember to maintain it so it’s ready when needed:

  • Keep canned food in a cool, dry place.

  • Store boxed food in tightly closed plastic or metal containers.

  • Replace expired items as needed.

  • Re-think your needs every year and update your kit as your family’s needs change.​
