An Emergency Supplies Kit should contain items you may need if you have to leave your home for whatever reason or are told you must evacuate for your safety. Ideally, it is recommended that you keep enough supplies in your home to meet your needs for at least three days, but ideally, if you have the means, for two weeks.
Plan to store these supplies in sturdy, easy-to-carry containers such as backpacks, duffle bags, small covered tubs or small covered trash containers.
