Emergency Kit

In an emergency, you will need some basic supplies. You may already have a flashlight but could you find it in the dark? An emergency kit should be well-organized and easy to retrieve if your family has to evacuate or get by without power or tap water. Be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours. For more information on preparing for an emergency, consult the 72-hour Emergency Preparedness Guide.
