What Should Be In Your Emergency Preparedness Kit
- What Should Be in Your Emergency Preparedness Kit?
When an emergency occurs, you and your family may need to survive on your own for a few days. It’s important to be prepared by having your own food, water and other supplies that can last for at least 72 hours. Having an emergency supplies kit with collection of basic items can help your family survive and have some of the items they need in the event of an emergency.
A basic emergency supply kit could include the following recommended items:
Food - Prepare at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
Water (one gallon per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation)
First aid kit
Battery-powered or hand crank radio
Dust mask (to help filter contaminated air)
Whistle (to signal for help)
Plastic sheeting and duct tape (to shelter in place)
Garbage bags, plastic ties and moist towelettes or wipes for personal sanitation
Wrench or pliers (to turn off utilities)
Manual can opener (for canned food)
After assembling your kit, make sure that it is properly maintained and ready to use in case of an emergency. Store it in a designated location that is easy to access when needed.
Store boxed food in tightly closed plastic or metal containers. Keep canned food in a cool, dry place.
Check for and replace expired items as needed. And reconsider your needs every year and update your kit as you and your family needs change.
