Where to Store Your Disaster Supply Kit

disaster_supply_kitYou never know where you will be when an emergency occurs. That’s why it’s important to always be prepared! In addition to having a disaster supply kit at home, you should also store one at work and in your car. The contents of your kits should vary depending on the storage location. The Ready campaign outlines what to pack in your disaster supply kit whether you’re at home or on the go:
• Your home kit should contain items like non-perishable food items and water to last for at least three days. Keep it in a designated area, so that everyone has access to it. You may want to consider having supplies for sheltering for up to two weeks;
• Your work kit should have enough food, water, and any necessary medications to last for at least 24 hours. You should also have comfortable shoes in case you have to walk a long distance in the event of an evacuation; and
• Your car kit should include flashlights, jumper cables, a first-aid kit, water, a shovel, and warm clothes!
