Emergency Preparedness

Are YOU Ready?

Everyone needs to think about these things before a disaster occurs. Coping with a disaster is much more difficult and dangerous if you're not prepared. Some people don't take disaster preparedness seriously because they don't think it will ever happen to them. If it does, they assume there's nothing they can do about it. The truth is, disasters can happen any time, anywhere. The better prepared you are, the better off you'll be. Disaster preparedness isn't just a case of preparing for the worst; it's being prepared to do your best when it matters most.

During an emergency, services of all sorts could be disrupted. Stores, gas stations, etc. may be closed. Roads may be blocked and help not available for some time. You could be on your own for perhaps days. A properly prepared and maintained Emergency Supply Kit can be the key to bringing you and your family through a major disaster.

The kit should contain everything your family needs for self sufficiency for at least 72 hours. Some stores sell more or less complete kits, but they can be put together an item at a time. When assembling the food items for your home emergency kit, choose foods that:

Water is the most important item to choose. You will need 4 liters (1 gal) per person per day. Water may be purified by boiling or using bleach but bottled water is the best.

Ensure that you have your families medications, (with the Drug Identification numbers if you have to refill them) and food for your pets.

   STEP 1: Complete an Emergency Preparedness Plan for your family
