We never know when disaster will strike, and every household should have an emergency kit. The attached list includes the MINIMUM supplies recommended. These supplies can be purchased as a kit or assembled on your own. It is suggested you should store them where they are easily accessible for you to grab if you need to evacuate. Packing smaller items in a 5- gallon bucket with a lid is also a good idea. For more information see: www.redcross.org.
