It’s time to get your kit together! 

emergency_tail-yellow If the idea of putting an emergency kit together has you overwhelmed – don’t despair. Rome wasn’t built in a day. And, your emergency kit doesn’t have to be either.

One of the most important things that you can do to prepare for an emergency is to have an emergency supply of water. This is because people can survive for weeks without food, but only a few days without water. So, water is a good place to start your preparedness efforts.

Here in the Pacific Northwest the general rule is to have one gallon of water per person per day to last you 14 days. You can store your emergency water supply in your own containers or buy commercially bottled water.

As for the rest of the kit, take stock of what you already have around the house – you’re probably more prepared than you think! Place the items you already have in an easy-to-carry bag or container, and then pick up the remaining items each time you go to the store in the coming weeks or months.
