Note: You can never be too prepared. The first 72 hours matter most.
It's important to be prepared for 72 hours. The best way to be prepared is to make an emergency kit in advance that can sustain you, your family and your pets for 72 hours.
For more information or to get ideas on items you can add to your emergency kit, please visit websites such as Ready.gov or the American Red Cross to explore ways you and your family can be prepared for an unexpected disaster.
