The first step is to consider how an emergency might affect your individual needs. Plan to make it on your own, for at least three days. It’s possible that you will not have access to disaster assistance, a medical facility or even a drugstore. It is crucial that you and your family think about what kinds of resources you use on a daily basis and what you might do if those resources are limited or not available. Think first about the basics for survival - food, water, clean air and any life-sustaining items you require to maintain your health, safety and independence.
Disasters are a reality that can occur almost anywhere, leaving you without electricity, running water, and sometimes without shelter. Being prepared is the best thing you can do to maximize your chances of survival.
NOTE: Customize YOUR kit for YOUR needs. You can include any other items in your 72 Hour Kit that you feel are necessary for your individual or family's survival.
