Are you ready in case of emergency? If you face a natural disaster, severe weather, an act of terrorism or a flu outbreak, you need to be prepared to survive on your own.Depending on the type of emergency, you will need to be able to survive for a minimum of 72 hours.

The following is a list of necessities: Evacuation Bag – Always have an evacuation bag ready to go in case you need to leave your home quickly. Choose one that is easy to carry and leave it close to the front door so that it's ready and easily accessible if you need to evacuate your home with short notice. Water and Food – Stock non-perishable, easy-to-prepare food and enough water for each member of your family, approximately one gallon per person per day. Remember to refresh water every three months and food supplies every six months to a year. Survival Basics – Include emergency survival basicsin your kit, such as a manual can opener, hand-crank radio, multipurpose tool, extra batteries, emergency blanket, duct tape, plastic sheeting, safety whistle and maps of the area. First Aid Kit – Prepare a separate basic first aid kitspecifically for your emergency preparedness kit. It's a good idea to also include any prescription medications, sanitation and personal hygiene items, warm clothes and blankets.
