Checklists for emergency preparedness

  • An emergency preparedness kit will help ensure your safety and the safety of your family. Making one is easy, inexpensive, and quick - in fact, you probably already have most of the items you need.

  • Having a first aid kit can be critical in an emergency. Making one is easy, inexpensive and quick - and it could save your life.

  • Pets are important members of our family. Just as an emergency preparedness kit can help keep you and your family safe, a pet emergency preparedness kit, can help ensure the safety of your pets.

  • Having an emergency food and water kit can be critical in an emergency, when regular sources of food and water can be interrupted.

  • A "family documents" kit will protect your identity and ensure you and your family get the help you need in an emergency.

  • Be prepared wherever you go with an emergency car kit. Making one is easy, inexpensive and quick - and it could save your life.

  • Prepare a special needs kit for family members such as infants and elderly or disabled persons. A special needs kit will help ensure everyone's unique needs are provided for in the event of an emergency, when regular sources of assistance can be interrupted.
