Prepare Your Emergency and Evacuation Kits Prepare Your Emergency and Evacuation Kits

For many emergencies you may be able to ‘shelter in place', either at home or at work. If so, your ability to securely see out the emergency will be greatly increased by relying on items you've included in your emergency kit and, if necessary, your evacuation kit.

You need to take the time to prepare an emergency and evacuation kit well ahead of any impending disaster.

  Fresh water for three days

 

  Three days worth of non-perishable food and can opener

  Spare batteries for radio, torch and mobile phone

 

  Essential medication

 

  Mobile phone and charger

 

  Important documents in sealed bags and cash

 

  Baby formula and nappies

 

  Waterproof bags

 

  Toiletries

Include items you'd need for at least three days in case of disruption to essential services such as power and water supplies. Also, include the equipment you'll need to prepare meals with no power.

Keep your kit in a waterproof storage container and store in an easy-to-access location. Check your kit every three months to stock up and rotate supplies to ensure provisions are fresh and safe to use.
