A disaster supply kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.
American Preparedness is a Service Disabled Veterans owned business that has designed the 7204 emergency preparedness kit to support four people for 72 hours (three days).
ABOUT PREPARE NORCALThe San Francisco Bay Area is a region that is highly vulnerable to natural hazards like earthquakes, wildfires, and severe weather. This means having your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours.
Each family or individual's kit should be customized to meet specific needs, such as medications and infant formula. Some of these items, especially those marked with a * can be dangerous, so please have an adult collect these supplies. ABC7 has gathered resources and tips to make it easier for you to access preparedness information all in one place. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster but they cannot reach everyone immediately. Rethink your clothing and bedding supplies to account for growing children and other family changes. Whether it's preparedness for floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, or fires, the key to survival in disasters is planning.


It's best to assume that in the event of an emergency or natural disaster, roads will be inaccessible by vehicles, and public transportation will be shut down. Use our preparedness section to stay informed, make a plan, and most importantly—remain safe in an emergency. You should be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least three days following a major emergency.
The 7204 contains enough food rations, water and other emergency supplies, such as emergency space blankets, flashlights, water-resistant radio with batteries and emergency ponchos to provide 4 people with the items needed to assist in surviving a natural or man made disaster. Additionally, about 90 percent of all presidentially-declared disasters are weather-related.
Unfortunately, most residents are not prepared to protect their families, homes and finances.

It is unlikely that emergency response services will be able to immediately respond to everyone's needs after a major disaster, so it is important to be prepared to take care of yourself and your family.
