Basic Preparedness Kits

Your Grab&Go! Bag
Having an emergency supply kit is essential to making it through a disaster safely. A small kit contained in a backpack or suitcase that is easy to carry in a moment's notice is an invaluable asset in an emergency. Supplies and tools to support you for three (3) days is suggested for your Grab&Go! Bag. In addition, we also suggest that you have supplies on hand to last each person for 30 days in the case of a major disaster. Due to our population and relative isolation, state and federal resources may be directed to more densely populated communities in a catostrophic event. Here are some suggestions to what to include in these kits.
