Basic Emergency Supply Kit Card

Being prepared at home and at work is crucial in an emergency. Make sure that you and your family know what to do before, during, and after an emergency. There are many situations, such as floods, debris flows, earthquakes, wildland fires, snow storms, and technological accidents that can strike at any time. 

When an emergency happens family members may be separated for extended periods of time. The public may also be without assistance for at least 72 hours or longer. 

It is a good idea for all family members to have emergency kits. A family emergency plan should also be made and practiced regularly. And don't forget your pets! You need to make sure you have a plan for them too.
