Be Prepared, Build a Kit
After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several hours or even days. Building a kit now will not only be helpful, but will also alleviate some stress from the situation.
A good kit will include food, water & other supplies to last for several days. Most of the items your kit should include are inexpensive and easy to find, but any one of them could save your life.
Also when building your kit make sure to consider what special needs your family may have, such as supplies for pets or seniors.
