Emergency Preparedness Kit

It’s always good to have an emergency preparedness kit containing the following items:

1. Drinking water – at least two litres per person per day and one litre per pet per day

2. Food that won’t spoil, such as canned food, energy bars and dried foods (replace food and water once a year)

3. Manual can opener and bottle opener

4. Wind-up or battery-powered flashlight and radio (and extra batteries)

5. First aid kit

6. Extra keys to your car and house

7. Cash in smaller bills, such as $10 bills

8. A copy of your emergency plan and contact information

9. Special items such as prescription medication, infant formula, equipment for people with disabilities or food, water and medication for your pets or service animal (personalize your kit according to your needs)
