If a disaster strikes your community, you might not have access to food, water, or electricity for some time. Store at least a 3-day supply of water for each member of your family – that means 1 gallon per person per day.
As advised by Red Cross, it is also important to prepare a kit for each member of your family who is able to carry one. When packing food, water and medicine in the into the kits, it is advised to keep track of the expiration date. Water should be replaced every 6 months.


I’m guilty as we do not have this in place and I know it is very important to be prepared for an emergency. I prepared for the typhoon a little bit, but need to run to the grocery today to buy more drinking water. Having your emergency supplies assembled into a kit makes them easy to find and use when the emergency strikes.  Get busy and get a kit put together for your family! Older children can prepare their own kits so as the exercise will train them to make disaster preparedness a way of life.


For those with kids, pack small toys, books or materials that can provide some entertainment during stressful times. This is quite an overwhelming list but I plan to start on with the documents as they are the easiest one to prepare as of now.
