2023-04-17 Emergency Preparedness Bulletin – Emergency Supply Kit

Last week, we started our series of Emergency Preparedness Bulletins by discussing Emergency Alerts and Warnings, to include what they are and how you can receive them. Now that you are thinking about Emergency Preparedness and you have determined what alerts and warnings you want to receive, and how you will receive them, you want to plan for being self-sufficient for several days. This would include having several days of food, water, and other supplies. A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. But don’t let your planning be restricted to your home. What if you are traveling when disaster strikes? Or what if you are at work when disaster strikes? You should consider having an emergency supply kit for your vehicle, one for your workplace, and having a kit for when you take long trips. Remember, we don’t always know when a disaster will strike and chances are you may not be home when it does. Have a Great Day, Stay Alert, and Be Prepared!
