Dealing with Emergencies
How to Prepare
Create an Emergency Kit
An emergency kit is to be used when an event occurs and you are unable to purchase necessities for your daily needs. Family emergency kits should prepare you and your family to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours. The key to assembling an emergency kit is to have the necessary items packed and stored at a location for all family members to access it when in need.
Emergency Kit for Your Home
Items can be stored in an easy-to-carry bag such as a backpack or duffel, not a luggage bag. This kit is not only to prepare and supply your family for a power outage in the winter, but also for when an evacuation is necessary and you have to leave your home immediately. Remember to pack what you or your family members need, as each person has individual needs. Ensure that you have a battery-powered radio in working order with spare batteries, to listen to instructions from your local station.
Items to include in your home emergency kit include:
Emergency Kit for Your Car
Your vehicle also requires an emergency kit in case a severe weather event hits while you are on the road, or if your car breaks down during extreme cold weather conditions.
