Whether you stay put or evacuate, you should have some basic supplies on hand, ready to sustain you in an emergency.
Emergencies, such as storms, floods, and fires, can shut down shops or interrupt utilities for an undetermined amount of time. You could be stranded in a dorm room, your car, or office, needing to survive on whatever you happen to have. ATMs and vending machines may not work, and food services may run short of supplies. A simple, well-maintained kit can help transform a potentially dangerous incident into a more manageable experience.
For more information and a list of emergency kits please visit the Office of Emergency Management.
