Build A Kit | Ready.gov
September 6 through September 12 is week two of the National Preparedness Month. Last week, we suggested that you make a plan to prepare your family in case of a disaster. This week, we are asking that you create a kit. Your kit should have essential items such as food, water, medications, and cash to last several days. Don’t forget face coverings, soap, hand sanitizer, and disinfecting wipes. FEMA’s Ready campaign provides a list of recommended supplies and additional items to consider for the unique needs of your household, including seniors, individuals with disabilities, and pets. For more information about National Preparedness Month please call us at 303-215-8886.
After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supplies to last for several days. A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.
