The message is simple, be ready to survive on your own for a minimum of 3 days following a disaster.

3 ways:

1. get a kit,
2. make a plan,
3. stay informed.


For Disasters

Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as making an emergency supply kit and developing a communications plan, are the same for both a natural or man-made emergency. Knowing what to do during an emergency is an important part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.
