National Severe Weather Preparedness Week
This week is National Severe Weather Preparedness Week. Ready.gov has great tips and reminders to help you and your family be aware and prepared!
Today’s highlight is on building a kit that will last for at least 72 hours. There are several ways to go about your kit. If you are short on time or unsure where to start you can purchase a pre packaged kit that will have the necessities needed in an emergency. You can also create your own kit tailored to your individual needs. Building your own kit allows you to have a larger supply and items that you and your family will enjoy eating.
So whether you opt for the basic essentials of a pre packaged 72 hour kit or build a customized kit, you will enjoy the peace of mind knowing that you have prepared for your family.
Shelf Reliance offers all of the tools, food and education needed for a well rounded kit.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25 – TAKE ACTION, BUILD A KIT
- A disaster supplies kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.
- You may need to survive on your own during and after an emergency. This means having a weather radio and your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours or it might take days.
