Emergency Supplies
Emergency supplies can be organized for any situation. Keep the items that you would most likely need at home in one easy-to-carry container such as a trash can, plastic storage container, camping backpack or duffel bag. Store it in a convenient place and put a smaller version in your car. Keep items in airtight plastic bags. Remember to change stored water and rotate food supplies every six months. Check the supplies and re-think your needs every year. Consult your physician or pharmacist about storing prescription medications and maintain a list of your prescription needs.
