Prepare An Emergency Kit
In an emergency, you may be required to care for yourself and your family for a period of time while officials implement their emergency response plans.
Most experts agree that you should have the following kits that should have at least 3 to 7 days worth of provisions for all family members, including special items for children, seniors, and pets. You can purchase pre-made kits or use the lists found here to create your own.
Additional information about creating emergency kits can also be found at the Federal Government's Get Prepared website.
