Get a Kit
Emergency Kits should contain supplies that will last every individual at least three days. Considerations need to be made for those who are elderly or have special needs as well as for infants and toddlers.
Pets also need to have at least three days of supplies. Be mindful that during a disaster, your animal may not be able to go outside to use the bathroom. Training pads are helpful to have in your kit for those situations.
