How do I prepare?
Are you prepared for an emergency?
Not sure what a 72 Hour Emergency Kit might look like? The kit pictured below is for a family of 2 adults with no pets. Please note that this kit was created for a travelling display, and so no cash and no water was included in it. Both items are strongly recommended to be in your 72 Hour Emergency Kit. The list of items contained in this regular-sized duffel bag is here to view, along with the 2012 cost to assemble it all. Recommended items for pets were also included in the list, but are not contained in this kit. They should be packed in a separate kit, in case your pets need to be at another location.
