Preparedness at Home

 

During many types of emergencies the normal services available to you may be disrupted. You may not have power, phone or internet services. You may not be able to buy food, access clean water from your taps or obtain money from the bank. The regions roads may be affected making movement difficult or impossible.

 

In order to keep your family healthy and safe it is a good idea to plan for emergency situations. Having made a plan, one of the best things you can do is prepare an emergency kit containing all your basic needs for a minimum of 72 hours.
