Are you prepared?

​​When an emergency or disaster occurs, it may be days before you are rescued and services become available. A 72-hour supply of the essentials can make a huge difference in how you and your family are able to cope.

Your 72-hour kit should include:

1. Flashlight (one for each family member)

2. RadioWater (6 litres for each family member)

3. Non-perishable food and a manual can opener (include baby supplies if necessary)

4. First Aid Kit (include a 72-hour supply of essential medications like insulin)

5. Pet supplies, candles, matches and a lighter

6. Change of clothes

7. Toilet paper

8. Garbage bags

In addition, to avoid the inconvenience and devastation of losing vital documents such as passports, birth certificates, and/or pictures, store hardcopies in a separate location. Give yourself peace of mind – scan or copy all these documents onto a flash drive. This makes it easy to take them with you and easy to store a back-up copy.
