There are six basics that you should stock for your disaster supply kit; water, food, clothing and bedding, first aid supplies, tools and emergency supplies and special items.  Keep these items in a waterproof container that can be easily transported from your home to your car and your safe place.  Assemble you kit now to allow for immediate action during an emergency.  Your family's disaster supply kit should include at least a three-day supply of:

  •  Water - One gallon of water per person per day.

  •  Non-perishable food - Select food items that are compact and lightweight.  Include the following items:

    • Ready-to-eat canned meats, fruits and vegetables

    • Canned juices

    • High energy foods

    • Vitamins

    • Comfort goods

    • Condiments

    • Food for infant

  •  Clothing and bedding - Include at least one complete change of clothing and footwear per person and the following weather-appropriate items:

    • Sturdy shoes or work boots

    • Rain gear

    • Blankets or sleeping bags

    • Hat and gloves

    • Thermal underwear

    • Sunglasses

  • Special Items - Infant and medical supplies: Remember supplies for family members with special requirements, such as infants, elderly, persons with disabilities and persons taking medication

  • Entertainment - Games and books

  • Important family documents

    • Wills, insurance policies, contracts, deeds, stocks and bonds
