Tip of the Week:
How to Build an Emergency Kit
Being prepared for an emergency is not just about staying safe during a disaster. It is about knowing how to stay comfortable, clean, fed, and healthy afterwards. That is why it is important for families to work together to build an emergency kit before a disaster strikes. When you are getting your items together for your kit make sure it has enough food, water, clothing and supplies that will last for at least three days. Go to www.ready.gov/kit for information on how to get started and for a list of suggested emergency kit supplies.
