Emergency Checklist Overview

If there is an emergency in your area, you might not have access to food, clean water, or other items you need for survival. Heat, electricity, or water might not work in the event of an emergency. Creating an emergency supply kit can help you make it though any emergency. Keep it in your home and make sure your family knows where it is. Keep it updated and current with the proper supplies on a regular basis. The kit should have enough supplies for you and your family for at least three days.

Depending on the disaster or circumstance, you may need different items in your emergency kit. Check and refill your kit every few months to make sure food and batteries aren't spoiled or past expiration.
