A disaster supply kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. You can use bleach as a disinfectant (diluted nine parts water to one part bleach), or in an emergency you can also use it to treat water. Previous evacuation maps and routes were based around the areas of the projected path of hurricane or severe storm, said Duval County Emergency Management Director Steve Woodard.
