Building an emergency kit
During the Region VI Carbon-Emery Preparedness Fair instruction will be given on how to create your own grab-and-go kits, also known as 72-hour kits.
When disaster strikes, you may only have enough time to grab the essentials: food, water and survival supplies. It is important to have these items easily accessible and ready to grab.
Grab-and-go kits may include the following items:
â¢Water (one gallon per person per day for at least 3 days)
â¢Food (at least a 3-day supply of nonperishable food).
â¢Flashlight (extra batteries).
â¢Battery-powered or hand-crank radio.
â¢Moist towelettes, garbage bag and plastic ties for personal sanitation.
â¢Candles and waterproof matches in a waterproof container.
â¢Books, games, puzzles or other activities for children.
â¢Hard candy or favorite treat.
â¢Other essential items.
