Disaster Supply Kits

Disasters happen anytime and anywhere - and when disaster strikes, you may not have much time to respond. There are six basics you should stock in your home, detailed in the sections below. Please also keep in mind to:

  • Pack your supplies in an easy-to-carry container such as a backpack, duffle bag, or trash container.
  • Personalize your emergency kit for your family.
  • Store supplies in a convenient place known to all family members.
  • Change your stored water supply and rotate your stored food every six months.
  • Re-think your kit and family needs at least once a year.
  • Replace batteries, update clothes, etc.
