Individuals and Families: Prepare


Are you prepared?


After a major disaster, services we take for granted such as running water, refrigeration, and telephones may be unavailable for an extended length of time. Experts recommend you prepare to be self-sufficient for at least three days.


Assemble an Emergency Supply Kit


When assembling your household emergency supply kit, put the contents in a large, watertight container (e.g. a large plastic garbage can with a lid and wheels) that you can move easily. Make sure to store the container in an easily accessible location. supply list


Assemble a Go-bag


A component of your emergency kit is your Go-bag. Put the items listed below together in a backpack or another easy to carry container in case you must evacuate quickly. Prepare one Go-bag for each family member and make sure each has an I.D. tag. You may not be at home when an emergency strikes so keep some additional supplies in your car and at work, considering what you would need for your immediate safety. supply list
