Building an emergency kit


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

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:

•Water (one gallon per person per day for at least 3 days)

•Food (at least a 3-day supply of nonperishable food).

•Flashlight (extra batteries).

•Battery-powered or hand-crank radio.

•Whistle.

•Dust mask.

•Moist towelettes, garbage bag and plastic ties for personal sanitation.

•Candles and waterproof matches in a waterproof container.

•Books, games, puzzles or other activities for children.

•Hard candy or favorite treat.

•Other essential items.
