Disaster Kit Storage

Where will you be when Disaster Strikes? FEMA reminds us that you never know where you’ll be when an emergency occurs, so it’s a good idea to be ready wherever you are.  That means preparing supplies for your home, work, and vehicle. We always say Tip #1: Prepare your car before you prepare your home. Learn Why..

The Ready Campaign has information about creating a disaster supply kit for each location.

For your home:

  • Create a kit containing enough food, water, and supplies to last at least three days; and
  • Keep the kit in a designated place and make sure family members know where it is.

For your work:

  • Be prepared to shelter in place for at least 24 hours;
  • Include food, water, and other necessities like medicines in your kit. Keep the kit in one container and be ready to grab and go; and
  • Have comfortable walking shoes in case an evacuation requires walking long distances.
