Disasters can strike at anytime and anywhere so make sure that you have supplies stored at home, in your car and at school or work. When organizing your emergency supplies don't forget about the special needs of your pets, young and elderly family members and those with disabilities.Supplies
At home, keep the emergency supplies that you would most likely need during an evacuation in a grab-and-go kit stored in an easy to carry container such as a large covered trash container or plastic, sealable container, camping backpack, or an old duffle bag. Store it near an exit route or in a location that is accessible should you need to leave your home quickly. Emergency Management British Columbia has provided the following resource for building your grab-and-go-bag. Ensure all family members know where the emergency supplies are.
Don't forget to check your batteries, test your fire extinguisher and rotate your food, water and medication supplies.
