The Federal Emergency Management Agency recommends that in case of an emergency, we all have some basic supplies on hand in order to survive for at least three days. A downloadable list of recommended supplies is available here. It is also available in the Helpful Links section of the blog.
Once you’ve assembled a basic kit, you’ll want to maintain and update the kit regularly. Learn more about what to include in a basic kit, additional emergency supplies to keep on hand, and supplies for unique needs at http://www.ready.gov/kit
