Pack an emergency supply kit
Perhaps the most important place you can prepare for an emergency is in your home.  There are several steps you can take that will help prepare your family for an emergency.  One of the first things emergency officials will tell you about a community disaster is, we may not be able to get to you for several days.  You will need to rely on each other and may need to do so without running water, gas, or electricity.

To prepare for that circumstance you should:
  Pack and emergency supply kit 
          • Basic first aid kit
          • 3 days worth of non-perishable food
          • 1 gallon of water, per person for each day you prepare for (we recommend 3 days)
          • Flashlight(s) and replacement batteries
          • Battery operated radio and replacement batteries
          • blankets and towels
          • hand tools, scissors, duct tape, etc
          • matches
