Emergency Preparedness

A little preparation goes a long way when you are faced with an emergency. Here are some steps you and your family should take to be prepared.

Get a Kit

Every family should have an emergency kit created that will help them survive in their house or at a shelter for several days to a week.

The emergency kit includes the basics for survival: fresh water, food, and warmth.

To prepare and maintain an emergency kit, print the DOH Emergency Supply Checklist. [ English PDF 45k] [ Español PDF 45k]
