Build A Kit

Emergency kits can help to ensure that you and your family members have what you need to survive when disaster strikes.

Consider the types of things you would need if any of the following occurred:

  • You had to evacuate your home and go to a shelter, hotel, or other temporary housing.
  • You had to shelter-in-place and were not able to leave your home.
  • The utility services to your home, including electricity, gas, and water, were cut off.
  • Grocery stores and other businesses, including financial institutions, in your community were unable to open or were out of stock.

It is imperative that you assemble your kits well in advance of an emergency. When a disaster happens, you may have just minutes to grab your kit and go.
