...BE INFORMED - MAKE A PLAN - BUILD A KIT - GET INVOLVED...

                    ...BUILD A KIT...

A DISASTER SUPPLIES KIT IS SIMPLY A COLLECTION OF BASIC ITEMS YOUR
HOUSEHOLD MAY NEED IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY.

TRY TO ASSEMBLE YOUR KIT WELL IN ADVANCE OF AN EMERGENCY. YOU MAY
HAVE TO EVACUATE AT A MOMENT`S NOTICE AND TAKE ESSENTIALS WITH
YOU. YOU WILL PROBABLY NOT HAVE TIME TO SEARCH FOR THE SUPPLIES
YOU NEED OR SHOP FOR THEM.

YOU MAY NEED TO SURVIVE ON YOUR OWN AFTER AN EMERGENCY. THIS MEANS
HAVING YOUR OWN FOOD, WATER, AND SUPPLIES IN SUFFICIENT QUANTITY
TO LAST FOR AT LEAST 72 HOURS. LOCAL OFFICIALS AND RELIEF WORKERS
WILL BE ON THE SCENE AFTER A DISASTER, BUT THEY CANNOT REACH
EVERYONE IMMEDIATELY.

YOU COULD GET HELP IN HOURS OR IT MIGHT TAKE DAYS.

ADDITIONALLY, BASIC SERVICES SUCH AS ELECTRICITY, GAS, WATER,
SEWAGE TREATMENT, AND TELEPHONE MAY BE CUT OFF FOR DAYS OR EVEN A
WEEK, OR LONGER. YOUR SUPPLIES KIT SHOULD CONTAIN ITEMS TO HELP
YOU MANAGE DURING THESE OUTAGES.
