If you and your family are forced to evacuate quickly, you won’t have time gather supplies. With an emergency go kit, you can be ready to go out the door when a problem arises.
Step 3: Pack a flashlight
Be prepared for power outages and nighttime evacuations by packing a flashlight with extra batteries in the kit.
Step 5: Have personal sanitation items
Have moist towelettes and garbage bags in your kit for personal sanitation needs.
Step 6: Stock personal items
Stock your kit with a whistle, dust masks, extra house and car keys, cash, blankets, sleeping bags, cell phone charges, and local maps.
Step 7: Bring important documents
Pack copies of any important documents you might need, such as a medication list, medical information, the lease or deed to your home, passports, birth certificates, and insurance policies.
Step 8: Use a good container
Stay organized and protect your emergency supplies by keeping them in a sturdy container that is easy to carry like a suitcase with wheels, and you’ll be prepared for virtually any emergency.
