Emergency Disaster Kits

Plan for 72 hours

The department maintains a small number of flash lights, first aid kits, and blankets on hand for emergencies. We do not store water or food in case of longer emergencies. It is recommended that building occupants make personal emergency disaster kits to last for 72 hours.

Here is shortlist of items recommended for a personal Emergency Disaster Kit..

  • Portable radio with extra batteries
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Emergency Contact information
  • First aid kit
  • Toilet tissue
  • Handy wipes
  • Several days supply of any prescribed medicine
  • $2.00 in quarters for telephone
  • Blanket
  • Food (no cooking required)
  • Bottled water
  • Extra clothing
  • Walking shoes
  • Gloves

These items are recommended by the Central United States Earthquake Consortium http://cusec.org/earthquake-safety-preparedness/before-an-earthquake/ste...
