All Americans should have some basic supplies on hand in order to survive. The checklist provided in this booklet is a great start, most of the items are inexpensive and easy to find, and any one of them could save your life. After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supplies to last for at least 72 hours (3 days). A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your household or business may need in the event of an emergency.
When preparing a kit, consider potential Geological hazards in your area and prepare your kit with items that may support the type of disaster you are more likely to encounter. Hazards such as Flooding, Forest Fires, Tsunami, Volcano, Landslides, Snow, Ice storms, and/or Windstorms. Other hazards that you may not think of could include utility interruption or failure, ie; telecommunications, electrical power, water, gas and/or pollution control.
Some factors are human caused and must be considered: robbery, lost person, child abduction, extortion, hostage incident, workplace violence, demonstrations, civil disturbance, terrorism, bombs, explosions and/or war.
Since you do not know where you will be when an emergency occurs, consider extra kits to prepare with appropriate supplies for home, work and/or vehicles for any “grab and go” situation.
Keep this kit in a designated place and have it ready in case you have to leave your home quickly. Make sure all family members know where the kit is kept.
Be prepared to shelter at work for at least 24 hours. Your work kit should include food, water and other necessities like medicines, as well as comfortable walking shoes. Be trained to use fire extinguishers, and to clean up small spills of hazardous materials. Also be aware of areas of security, evacuation and locations to meet-up.
Vehicle: In case you are stranded, keep a kit of emergency supplies in your car. This may include flares, tire repair, blankets and snacks.
Businesses: Many “physical needs” are still the same listed here in the front of the book. In the back portion of this work book, you will find more specific lists for businesses to implement.

θ Water – one gallon of water per person
per day for at least three days,
for drinking and sanitation

Maintaining Your Kit
After assembling your kit remember to maintain it so it’s ready when needed:
__ Rotate out expiring items (medications, canned foods, and/or protein bars)
__ Keep canned food in a cool, dry place
__ Store boxed food in tightly closed plastic (waterproof) or metal containers
__ Re-think your needs every year and update your kit as your family’s needs change
__ Kit storage locations
Even though mass care shelters often provide water, food, medicine and basic sanitary facilities, you should plan to take your disaster supplies kit with you so you will have the supplies you require. Mass care sheltering can involve living with many people in a confined space, which can be difficult and unpleasant. To avoid conflicts in the stressful situation, it is important to cooperate with shelter managers and others assisting them. Keep in mind that alcoholic beverages and weapons are forbidden in emergency shelters and smoking is restricted.
Search for open shelters by texting SHELTER and a Zip Code to 43362 (4FEMA). Ex: Shelter 01234
Set-up where to call or who to contact for a “Common safe place.”
If family becomes separated and/or to update other family members, have an agreed upon location, and out of area contact person that can be the central station for communication.
