Make an emergency kit

During an emergency, you could lose important services, such as electricity, water, phones, and transit.

You might even need to leave your home.

It is important that you make emergency kits – filled with food, water, clothing, medicine, money, and other emergency supplies – for you, your family, and your pets.

While it is possible to purchase ready-made emergency kits, it's easy to make your own. All of the supplies you need are available at most grocery and camping supply stores. Use these lists to help you with your shopping.

If you want to purchase a kit already made, you can find them online, at medical supply stores, and at camping supply stores.
