The first step in being prepared for a disaster is organizing your preparedness kit. Assembling your kit is easy – whether you decide to purchase an official Red Cross preparedness kit or to assemble your own, here are some guidelines for what to include.
If an earthquake or other disaster strikes your community, you might not have access to food, water, and electricity for days or even weeks. By taking some time now to store emergency food and water supplies, you can provide for your entire family. The Red Cross recommends maintaining a two-week supply of food and water.
