Community Preparedness & MRC
Emergencies can happen with little to no warning, help your family prepare for when disaster strikes.
Families should work together to build a kit so their family can survive for the first 72 hours following a disaster because it may take a while for help to arrive. This includes basic items such as fresh water, medications, food, and more. See https://www.ready.gov/kit to get started.
