Suggestions & Reminders

  • Store your kit in a convenient place known to all family members. Keep a smaller version of your Emergency Supplies Kit in the trunk of your car.
  • Keep items in airtight plastic bags.
  • Change your stored water supply every six months so it stays fresh.
  • Rotate your stored food according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Re-think your kit and family needs at least once a year. Replace batteries, update clothes (keeping changing seasons a consideration), etc.
  • Ask your physician or pharmacist about storing prescription medications.
  • If you store important records on computers, keep backup copies on diskettes and/or keep hard copies on file.
  • Keep the tanks on your vehicles full of gas for emergency evacuations.

Family Disaster Preparedness in 5 easy steps

1 - DISCUSS the disasters most likely to happen in your area and their impact on your family's safety. Hazards in our area include home fires, severe winter weather and storms, earthquakes, flooding, and hazardous materials threats.

2 - TRAIN all family members. Take first aid classes. Learn to use a fire extinguisher and how to shut off utilities. Do not take the chance that the only person who knows first aid or how to turn off the natural gas will be at home when needed.

3 - ASSEMBLE your emergency and disaster supplies into a personal 72 hour emergency preparedness kit. This would include food, water, clothing and medications to last you at least 72 hours. You need enough supplies for each family member.

4 - IDENTIFY in and out of state emergency names and numbers and provide copies to each family member. Post a copy near your phone and put copies in your 72 hour disaster supplies kit. When local phone service is out, family members can use their out-of-state contact to relay messages.

5 - MAINTAIN your readiness. Review your disaster preparedness plan with your family at least once a year. Identify what new training, equipment or supplies you may need. Conduct fire evacuations and earthquake "drop, cover and hold" drills with your family.
