EMERGENCY SUPPLIES

Keep enough supplies in your home to meet your needs for at least three days. Assemble a Disaster Supplies Kit with items you may need in an evacuation. Store these supplies in sturdy, easy-to-carry containers such as backpacks, duffle bags or covered trash containers.


Include:

· A three - day supply of water (one gallon per person per day) and food that won’t spoil.

· One change of clothing and foot-wear per person, and one blanket or sleeping bag per person.

· A first aid kit that includes your family’s prescription medications.

· Emergency tools including a battery-powered radio, flashlight and plenty of extra batteries.

· An extra set of car keys and a credit card, cash or travelers checks.

· Sanitation supplies.

· Special items for infant, elderly or disabled family members.

· An extra pair of glasses.

Keep important family documents in a waterproof container. Keep a smaller kit in the trunk of your car.
