Your emergency kit contains basic items you and your family may need if an emergency happens. When a disaster hits, your family will depend on you. Take the first step towards getting ready to take care of yourself and your family: prepare an emergency kit. At a minimum, plan to have at least a 3-day supply, of food, water and medicine.
It is important to remember to review the content of your kit on a regular basis. Some items can expire - like bottled water. Taking action means checking your kit and exchanging these items for fresh supplies. You can always use supplies to swap out before they expire for lunch or dinner.
