In school, children are taught the "Stop, Drop, and Roll" drill in case of a fire, the "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" drill in case of an earthquake, but have you ever thought about how prepared you would be in case of an emergency evacuation. 

We have provided a short list of items to put together in a plastic bag. Placing the bag in a quick accessible location in your home and or car will help protect you and your family. 

  • Important Documents
  • First Aid Kit 
  • Emergency Cash 
  • Personal Hygiene Items
  • Water and Non-Perishable Food 
  • Pet Supplies 
  • Clothes and Blankets 
  • Miscellaneous Supplies (flashlight, batteries, can opener, car cell phone charger) 
  • Prescription Medications
  • Try to keep your gas tank full or closest to being filled.
