  3. 3. Types of Emergencies  Chemical Emergency  Drought  Earthquake  Fire  Flood  Heat Wave  Landslide  Power Outage  Terrorism  Volcano  Wildfire  Winter Storm
  4. 4. Build A Kit  Different supplies are needed for different types of disaster. Do the research of what emergencies are most common in your area and what you would need just in case.  Consider the needs of each family member when preparing your kit.  For some hints and suggestions: http://www.redcross.org/prepare/location/home- family/get-kit
  5. 5. Suggestions to Include:  Water—one gallon per person, per day (3-day supply for evacuation, 2- week supply for home)  Food—non-perishable, easy-to- prepare items (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)  Flashlight  Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible)  Extra batteries  First aid kit  Medications (7-day supply) and medical items  Multi-purpose tool  Sanitation and personal hygiene items  Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies)  Cell phone with chargers  Family and emergency contact information  Extra cash  Emergency blanket  Map(s) of the area
  6. 6. Stay Informed  Make sure you aware of weather as it comes through and the seasons change.  Have a neighborhood or community weather watch. Set up a round robin with everyone in the neighborhood to ensure everyone is aware of weather.  http://www.weather.com has up to date weather for your area.
  7. 7. Invest in a Landline  A corded landline works even if there is a power outage.  While cell phone towers can get jammed during an an emergency or natural disaster, a landline uses wires to connect your call and won’t get jammed.  In case of a call to 911, a landline gives your exact location. Cell phones use E-911 which gives a general area and can greatly impact response time.
