American Red Cross on emergency kit preparedness

It’s important to prepare for disasters and other emergencies.  natural and human-caused disasters can strike suddenly, at any time.  There are three actions everyone can take that can help make a difference.

Get an emergency kit.  Make a plan.  Be informed.

Being prepared means being equipped with the proper supplies you may need in the event of an emergency or disaster.  Keep your supplies in an easy-to-carry emergency preparedness kit that you can use at home or take with you in case you must evacuate.
