Creating your own disaster survival kit is one way to ensure that you and your family are able to survive on your own after an emergency in the event your lives are interrupted by a disaster.
Some of these items, especially those marked with a * can be dangerous, so please have an adult collect these supplies. 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.
As hurricane season is already underway, it’s past time for me to prepare for emergencies. Review your emergency plan and touch base with family, neighbors, and other contacts regarding your plans.

When I was an administrator, I had to research and prepare an emergency plan for the school for which I was responsible. Using the lists I’ve included here for you, or your own, make a list of everything you are low on or out of and stock up on those items first. A disaster supply kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. To get started, find a good emergency planning checklist of the things you need to do, and the items you will need, and the papers you will need to gather in case of emergency.
In this post, we’ll look at preparations for hurricane season, which lends itself to other types of emergency planning, such as tornadoes, floods, fire, evacuation.

At the beginning of hurricane season, start buying, and collecting around the house, the items you’ll need in an emergency, especially those things we tend to use up during the rest of the year, like batteries, candles, matches, canned goods. At a bare minimum, you should try to maintain an excess supply of certain items in case of any emergency. Have a list of items with your emergency checklists that you would pack last minute to take with you if you have to evacuate (for items such as family photos, the family Bible, jewelry, favorite small items that cannot be replaced).
