Storing your family preparedness kit.

Store your family preparedness kit in a cool, dry location in your home. Pack items into clean, sturdy totes.
Remember to keep your kit up to date with the latest documents, unexpired food, and relevant weather attire.

Phase 1 — Water
Disruption to water supply systems after a disaster is very common. Preparing for a supply outage or shortage should be a high priority.
Phase 2 — Canned, Packaged & Comfort Food
After some disasters, grocery stores are destroyed or do not have electricity to operate. Having your own supply of food is essential.
Phase 3 — Warmth, Visibility & Connection
Pack these essentials to ensure that you can survive the first hours and days after a disaster.
Phase 4 — Clean Air, First Aid & Personal Hygiene
These items will help you care for yourself and your family after a disaster.
Phase 5 — Special Items
Being able to care for your finances, livelihood and pets is key to disaster preparedness.
