Disaster Preparation

Assembling and Storing a Disaster Supply Kit
You can cope best by preparing for disaster before it strikes. One way to prepare is by assembling a Disaster Supply Kit. After disaster strikes, you won’t have time to shop or search for supplies. But if you've gathered supplies in advance, you and your family can endure an evacuation or home confinement.

Preparing Your Kit
  • Review the checklist on the next few pages (from FEMA L-189, ARC 4463, Your Family Disaster Supplies Kit)
  • Gather the supplies from the list
  • Place the supplies you’re apt to need for an evacuation in an easy-to-carry container. These supplies are listed with an asterisk (*)
