Emergency Preparedness & Kits

  • A two-week supply of non-perishable packaged or canned food.

  • A non-electric can opener and non-breakable eating and drinking utensils.

  • One complete change of clothing for each person, sturdy work cloths, sturdy shoes, socks, extra underwear, and rain or snow gear.

  • Towels, blankets, pillows, and sleeping bags.

  • First aid kit that includes a first aid handbook, adhesive tape, bandages, antibiotic ointments, rubbing alcohol, cotton balls, aspirin, spare glasses and contact lens needs, medications, soap, and thermometer.

  • A battery-powered radio, flashlight or lantern, extra batteries.
