Make a 72 Hour Kit

Other emergency kits you'll need

In addition to the family emergency kit, you should consider making these additional kits:

  • "Grab and go" bag — If you have to immediately leave your home after a disaster you need a Grab-n-go bag to see you through the next 12-24 hours
  • Vehicle emergency kit — When an emergency happens you may be in your car and not able to return home, so you need to have supplies to help sustain you and keep you comfortable
  • Workplace emergency kit — Being safe at work will help ensure you can return home to help your family during an emergency
  • Pet emergency kit — If you need to evacuate, you should take your pets with you, so make sure you're prepared to care for them
