Along with this flyer, you will find a two-page Family Emergency Preparedness
Supplies Calendar (page 2). It is intended to help you prepare for emergencies before they
happen. Using this calendar, your family can assemble an emergency kit
in small steps over a six month period. Check off each as you gather the contents.
Supplies may be stored all together in a large plastic garbage can
or food may be kept on kitchen or pantry shelves.
Remember to rotate your perishable supplies and change water every six months.
The latest advice is to prepare for seven to ten days' worth of supplies.
