Build an Emergency Kit

After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supplies to last for at least 72 hours. A emergency kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. Most of the items are inexpensive and easy to find, and any one of them could save your life. Headed to the store? Download a printable version to take with you. Once you take a look at the basic items, consider what unique needs your family might have, such as supplies for pets, or seniors.

To assemble your kit, store items in airtight plastic bags and put your entire emergency supplies kit in one or two easy-to-carry containers such as plastic bins or a duffel bag.
