Emergency Supply Kit

Disasters Happen – Are You Ready?

An emergency supply kit in your home, vehicle and place of work can assist you through times of disaster. All emergency preparedness kits should include basic survival items as well as family specific items, such as medication.

In Alaska, it is crucial to stay warm and dry during an emergency situation. In addition to an emergency supply kit, designate a post-disaster meeting place for family members and an out of state contact that family members can call to verify they are alright (in-state phone lines may become clogged)

Supplies should last you 5 to 7 days, and be conveniently located in an easy to carry container/backpack.
