Disaster Supply Kit

Disaster Supply Kit

A disaster supply kit can be useful if you become confined to your home, are without power for an extended time, or must evacuate as a result of severe weather. Keep it updated and readily accessible for safety, comfort and convenience. It is especially important if you have a baby, small children or pets in the home. All household members should know where it is stored. Replace food, water, medical supplies and batteries as needed. Pack the essential items you may need if you have to evacuate your home in an easy-to-carry container. Don't forget essential prescriptions or other specific health-related items that may be essential to you or your family members.
