Emergency Supply KitHere in Ohio we don’t usually experience typhoons, earthquakes, or severe tornadoes. It can be hard to fathom the devastation. But just because we don’t have these extreme weather events, doesn’t mean we are invincible to other natural disasters. Or that every household shouldn’t have an emergency supply kit. 

Emergency Supply Kit

Everyone should have some basic supplies on hand in order to survive an emergency for disaster. Your supplies should cover you for at least three days. A few items to include in this kit:
  • Water – one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
  • Food – at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio with tone alert, and extra batteries for them
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Dust mask to help filter contaminated air, and plastic sheeting and duct tape for sheeting in place
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Manual can opener for food
  • Local maps
  • Cellphone with charger and inverter
The above items are just a general guideline, you should modify your kit to fit your family. Add any prescription medications, pet foods, etc to fit your needs.
