Are You Ready?
When an emergency or disaster occurs, it may be days before you are rescued and services become available. A 72-hour supply of the essentials can make a huge difference in how you and your family are able to cope. Your 72-hour kit should include:
Flashlight (one for each family member)
Water (6 litres for each family member)
Non-perishable food and a manual can opener (include baby supplies if necessary)
First Aid Kit (include a 72-hour supply of essential medications like insulin)
Candles, matches and a lighter
Change of clothes
In addition, to avoid the inconvenience and devastation of losing vital documents such as passports, birth certificates, and/or pictures, store hardcopies in a separate location. Give yourself peace of mind – scan or copy all these documents onto a flash drive. This makes it easy to take them with you and easy to store a back-up copy.
